Atlantic Hydrogen - a New Brunswick, US-based clean technology company - is launching a large-scale demonstration project of its CarbonSaver™ technology, a patent-pending plasma process for the onsite generation of hydrogen-enriched natural gas (HENG). The three-year, $10mn demonstration project will focus on validating the technology at commercial pressures and flow rates, placing a value on the extracted carbon and developing a commercialisation strategy. EnCana, through its Environmental Innovation Fund, is contributing $3mn to the project, while the Province of New Brunswick, through the Climate Action Fund and Canada’s ecoTrust for Clear Air and Climate Change, is contributing $2mn. ‘The funding from this new partnership will help us advance CarbonSaver™ towards commercial application by supporting tests of the technology’s capabilities on a significantly larger scale,’ says David Wagner, President and CEO of Atlantic Hydrogen. ‘At the completion of the demonstration project, CarbonSaver™ is expected to be ready for use in power plants, compressors, natural gas vehicle refuelling and even home and commercial heating.’ Natural gas is already among the world’s cleanest burning energy sources and CarbonSaver™ has the potential to make it even more environmentally friendly by further reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) air emissions from natural gas combustion. Attaching the technology to a natural gas fuel line creates hydrogen enriched natural gas (HENG) as it extracts solid carbon and reduces CO2 emissions. The removed carbon can then be sold for use in products such as inks, dyes and plastics.
