In the modular plasmalysis plants, a high-frequency plasma field, generated by renewable electricity, splits hydrocarbons such as methane into their molecular components: hydrogen and solid carbon. Compared to water electrolysis, plasmalysis requires only one-fifth the energy to produce the same amount of hydrogen. A single 20-megawatt plant can convert about 70,000 metric tons of LNG into hydrogen per year and save about 200,000 metric tons of CO2.
The hydrogen can be used for emission-free electricity and heat generation or in the chemical industry. Since the CO2 is sequestered in products over the long term, this technology is also the first market-ready alternative to carbon capture storage.
Cooperation for electricity-autonomous combined heat and power generation
In January 2023, Graforce entered a cooperation with Kawasaki Gas Turbine Europe. Within the plant solution, carbon-free hydrogen is produced from biomethane, natural gas, LNG or LPG. This is converted to electricity in Kawasaki's hydrogen gas turbine and reused in the plasmalysis to produce hydrogen. Thus, CO2-free electricity and high-temperature heat is generated. Once started, the whole system requires no further electricity.
Graforce is a German hydrogen technology company. Their power-to-X plants produce carbon dioxide free or carbon dioxide negative hydrogen and synthetic feedstocks - with highest efficiency and lower infrastructure costs in the multi-megawatt range. Thus, Graforce decarbonizes fossil energies, industrial sectors and the heat, transport and building sectors. The company is currently in the process of expanding its strategic partnerships to quickly scale its hydrogen technology worldwide. www.graforce.com/EN
