Hydrogen-powered V8 engine for Toyota, Yamaha automobiles – pv magazine International

In addition, Belgian company Tree Energy Solutions (TES) is accelerating its plans to develop Germany’s Wilhelmshaven port into a world-scale hub for importing green gas, and German engineering firm MAN Energy Solutions will be up to 500 million euros invest its hydrogen-focused subsidiary H-TEC Systems.

Toyota Motor Corporation commissioned the Japanese automobile company Yamaha Motor to develop a hydrogen-powered V8 engine for automobiles. “The unit is based on the 5.0-liter engine of the luxury sports coupe Lexus RC F with modifications to the injection nozzles, cylinder heads, intake manifold and more and delivers up to 450 hp at 6,800 rpm and a maximum torque of 540 Nm from 3,600 rpm / min,” the company said in a statement. Last year, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Subaru Corporation, Toyota Motor Corporation, Mazda Motor Corporation and Yamaha Motor announced their intention to jointly explore fuel options for internal combustion engines.

Based in Brussels Energy solutions for trees (TES) is accelerating its announced plans to develop the German port Wilhelmshaven to a world-scale hub for importing green gas. “TES Green Hydrogen is primarily produced from solar, wind and hydropower in countries with abundant renewable energy sources, followed by CO2 is added to make green CH4 which is used as an energy source,” the company announced on Wednesday. The methane is then transported to Wilhelmshaven with a specially built fleet of ships. “In Wilhelmshaven, the green CH4 be converted back into green hydrogen with the resulting CO2 collected in a continuous recirculation system and returned to the producing countries by ship.”

Penn State scientists unveiled a “highly sensitive system” for detect hydrogen evolution, which reportedly could contribute to the development of water splitting processes and the hydrogen sector in general. The “new system … is the most sensitive in the world,” said Venkatraman Gopalan, a professor of materials science and engineering and physics at Penn State. According to the researchers, the tool can efficiently screen promising photocatalysts. “If you have ranked low in both categories hydrogen evolution rate and the Mass of the required photocatalyst, it means that it is a really sensitive system for the discovery of new photocatalytic materials. And it turns out our work came out top in both categories,” said Huaiyu Wang, leader of the study, which was published on Review of Scientific Instruments.

German manufacturing and engineering company MAN energy solutions will invest up to 500 million euros in its hydrogen-focused subsidiary H-TEC systems in the coming years. “We are expanding H-TEC Systems into one of the world’s leading players in the field of PEM electrolysis. In the next five to ten years, as decarbonization progresses, green hydrogen will become one of the most important primary energy sources for the global economy,” said Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Energy Solutions. H-TEC Systems would benefit from the strong connection to MAN Energy Solutions, “but also from direct access to the expertise and experience of the Volkswagen Group, especially in questions of production scaling and supplier-based series business.”

Chemical company from Malmö perstorpFinnish state energy company Forumand based in Dusseldorf Uniper submitted a 97 million euro application to EU Innovation Fund for Project Air, which aims to build a manufacturing facility for sustainability methanol in Stenungsund, Sweden. “The project is possible through an innovative use of biogas, hydrogen carbon dioxide recovered from electrolysis and tailings streams and from Perstorp’s own facilities to produce the methanol. This means the project will use carbon atoms that would otherwise become CO2 emissions,” the companies wrote on Thursday. The total investment in Project Air is expected to be EUR 236.3 million.

Federation of Indian Industry Indian Hydrogen Alliance (IH2A) has proposed the creation of the H2Bharat public-private task force for a gigawatt-scale national hydrogen hub development plan. The proposal was addressed to NITI Aayog and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) “with the aim of identifying at least five large GW-scale green hydrogen hubs for development in India within the next 18 months.” NITI Aayog and IH2A proposed to support the development through a seven-point plan that includes co-location of green H2 production and consumption, public funding, a collaboration between the private and public sector, government green bonds and synergies between different national hydrogen hubs, and support for cluster developments. “Our goal is to reduce the cost of green hydrogen to $2.5/kg by 2025 and $1/kg by 2030. This is only possible by increasing the size and scale of hydrogen production,” commented Amitabh Kant, Managing Director of NITI Aayog.

hydrogen generator Green Hydrogen International (GHI) presented his Hydrogen City Projectt, an integrated production, storage and transport hub for green hydrogen in Texas that would reach up to 60 GW. “Pipelines will deliver the green hydrogen to Corpus Christi and Brownsville, where it will be converted into green ammonia, sustainable aviation fuel and other products, or pipelined directly to hydrogen power plants and other users across the state,” the company wrote on its website. Like other hydrogen projects, the project will be built up step by step. The first phase, scheduled to be operational in 2026, consists of 2 GW of production and two storage caverns in the Piedras Pintas salt dome. Onshore wind and sun will power the electrolysers. “After all, more than 50 caverns can be created in the Piedras Pintas salt dome, which store up to 6 TWh of energy.”
