Center for Process Innovation and Hrein Energy to Promote Renewable H2 Infrastructure Projects

Jose Michael

The UK Center for Process Innovation (CPI) and Japan-based Hrein Energy Inc. entered into a strategic alliance agreement for the promotion of renewable energy-based hydrogen infrastructure projects in northeast England, UK and Europe.

Hrein Energy Inc. is commercializing a system that stores hydrogen produced via electrolysis powered by renewables (eg. wind, solar, etc.) as an organic hydride. (Earlier post.) Organic hydrides are liquids under atmospheric temperature and pressure, yet offer relatively high hydrogen content: between 6-8 wt.%

The organic hydride can be shipped and distributed by trucks to points of demand such as refueling stations, where a compact “dehydrogenator” installed at each site takes hydrogen out of the organic hydride.

CPI was established as a Centre of Excellence in North east of England, UK in 2002. Since having merged with Cenamps, another Centre of Excellence specializing in nanotechnology in April 2008, CPI has been focusing on technological and business development in areas including advanced processes, low-carbon energy, functional materials and printable electronics.
