Reaction-based hydrogen production tech offers affordable, clean energy solutions
GenHydro, a Lancaster, PA-based startup and innovator of sustainable, reaction-based hydrogen production technology, has developed novel technology to provide clean, universally accessible energy. After extensive research and development, the introduction of GenHydro’s latest commercially scalable solution also happens to be in alignment with the progression of the US Inflation Reduction Act.
“The new bill will accelerate the transition to a hydrogen-based energy market and bridge the gap for the cost of that transition,” says President and CEO, Eric Schraud. “GenHydro has developed an approach that makes renewable hydrogen cost effective and accessible today.”
Current methods of green hydrogen production have proven to be costly, and moving hydrogen is logistically difficult, but our reactors can produce on demand hydrogen at a competitive cost, and without having to create a logistical network for moving hydrogen from production site to end user.
Since its incorporation in March of 2021, GenHydro has introduced novel hydrogen production technology that utilizes a chemical reaction to produce zero emissions hydrogen. This method has the capability to move the reactant or “solid fuel” to produce hydrogen on-site, instead of shipping the hydrogen itself.
We currently have multiple US-based projects underway that, when completed, will have a daily production capacity of 456MWh and 7.6 metric tons of hydrogen. This would be the equivalent of powering 15,320 homes and fueling a fleet of nearly 70 class 8 hydrogen fuel cell trucks. When compared to fossil fuel sources, these projects would mean a CO2 offset of 248 tons per day or a reduction of over 90,000 tons of CO2 a year.
“GenHydro has the potential to provide gigawatt levels of energy well ahead of 2030,” says Schraud. “Technologies like this are going to be vital to chipping away at emissions and helping us reach our climate change goals.”
