Acceleware believes that using EMPowered Heat with the CTI as the energy input for a pyrolysis reactor could result in the cleanest, most flexible, and most economic hydrogen globally. Hydrogen from pyrolysis is often referred to as turquoise, because it combines the cost efficiency of blue hydrogen with the emissions reduction benefits of green hydrogen. Another major environmental benefit is that the pyrolysis process requires zero fresh water, and does not require disposal of any resulting wastewater. 

Pyrolysis is quickly gaining attention due to environmental benefits and economic potential. Having greater than 98% conversion efficiency means that EMPowered Heat could be the most economic and effective way to commercialize and scale-up hydrogen production. CTI pyrolysis is expected to be flexible, scalable, and capable of distributed low-cost production with no carbon emissions.

How It Works 

Acceleware has a working commercial-scale version (2 MW) of the CTI platform. The CTI is capable of operating at 20 kHz to 120 kHz and at a power range from 100 kW to over 10 MW. The power of this heating ‘engine’ could allow for significant improvements to a pyrolysis reaction since CTI produced RF energy could provide conversion efficiency and cost advantages over other energy sources.

 

The CTI technology has:

  • been developed over seven years and is currently operating at a 2 MW maximum power level 

  • is proven and capable of scaling to over 10 MW

  • provides a rapid path to scale hydrogen production to industrial levels of 20 tons /day at 10 MW while maintaining unparalleled energy conversion efficiency.

Acceleware is currently engaging with partners to accelerate CTI hydrogen technology development.

EMPowered Hydrogen Project 

Acceleware and Aurora Hydrogen planned to collaborate to develop what is expected to be the most efficient, clean, and scalable hydrogen (H  ) production process designed to date, supporting a transformative opportunity for Canada’s energy sector.

The two-year project will employ a novel methane pyrolysis approach, utilizing electricity converted to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic waves via Acceleware’s Clean Tech Inverter (CTI).

The resulting technology could be applied in distributed hydrogen production, to supply hydrogen in locations farther away from major production hubs but that still have access to natural gas. This solution could overcome the challenges of transporting hydrogen over long distances while minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and significantly reducing cost.
