Applications for Hydrogen
PinkH2 technology has a wide range of industrial applications from supplying H2 as a fuel for railway locomotives to use H2 in a brick kiln to produce zero carbon heat for bricks and ceramics.
PinkH2 technology can provide H2 as fuel for future flight with hydrogen powered aircraft. H2 will be produced onsite at airports or even at inner city airpads. No long supply chains or large storage is needed. Long term stability of aviation fuel prices.
PinkH2 can produce H2 onboard ships as fuel for existing ship engines and to provide electrical energy. Onboard supply of fuel will reduce time in ports and the H2 can be produced from desalinated seawater. Significant reduction in shipping fuel costs and the quality and purity of the fuel is consistent.
Hydrogen fuel for railway locomotives.
Canadian Pacific has converted locomotives to use H2 and fuel cells to provide propulsion power and their first H2 locomotive to run on a commercial route began in 2022. Behydro is retrofitting diesel electric locomotives at Rosslyn in South Africa to use H2 in their internal combustion engines.
Securing a trackside H2 production facility is simple and inexpensive compared with the impossible task of securing thousands of miles of cables on electrified rail lines. Cable theft is a major problem in certain countries.
Sustainable Aviation Fuel
Hydrogen and carbon dioxide (CO2) are the two feedstocks required for producing SAF. PinkH2's low cost hydrogen enables SAF to be made and sold at near parity with jet fuel prices.
Industries such as cement production and producing electricity from waste (Waste to Energy) emit large amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. Our subsidiary, PinkH2 Aerofuels has intellectual property on making SAF using captured CO2 from cement and waster to energy facilities.
Carbon Capture Costs
Carbon capture and storage is a very expensive option for large CO2 emitters. The costs for capture, transport and storage in undersea caverns can be over $ 100 per tonne. PinkH2 Aerofuel's method eliminates the costs of transport and storage completely. What's more, the method will reduce the cost of the carbon capture significantly for both cement and WtE production facilities.
