Metacon and Hynion have signed an agreement whereby Hynion will lease a hydrogen generator from Metacon.
The reformer will have a capacity to produce about 40 Nm 3 of hydrogen per hour, which is sufficient to fuel 25 – 30 hydrogen cars each day. Upgraded biogas will be used as raw material for hydrogen production.
“This represents an important step in the Collaboration Agreement with Hynion and will be the world’s first publicly available hydrogen station with integrated biogas production,” said Chris Tornblom, CEO of Metacon.
“We are very pleased that this lease has been signed. Biogas can be an important source of hydrogen, and with this device we will be able to verify operational parameters for sustainable local production at one of our hydrogen stations. There is a growing interest in hydrogen infrastructure, as both light and heavy hydrogen vehicles are entering the market in greater numbers, ”says Ulf Hafseld, CEO of Hynion AS.
The reformer will be operational this fall, and the final location has yet to be decided.
