Technology Overview

  • Conventional H2 purification technologies are uneconomical with dilute hydrogen streams
  • Progressus Clean Technologies provides highly selective hydrogen separation using innovative and patented membrane and electro-chemical technology
  • Extensive portfolio of IP to provide robust, one-of-a-kind performance for dilute H2 streams <20%
  • Multifunction enclosure (patent pending) technology doubles hydrogen production capacity and reduces associated CapEx by 50%
  • Innovative Electrochemical process reduces energy consumption by up to 80%- attractive for on-site hydrogen production
  • Traditional technologies do not offer a cost-effective solution for dilute hydrogen streams due to significant oxygen production
  • Progressus Clean Technologies is capable of safely and efficiently recovering high purity hydrogen (>99%) without any oxygen by-product
  • Conventional water electrolyzers are energy intensive (>50 kWh/kg H2); Progressus Clean Technologies provides a low-energy solution (<15 kWh/kg H2)
  • Intellectual property for fully automated operation with remote troubleshooting makes Progressus Clean Technologies customer-friendly with minimal downtime

Technology Benefits

  • Green H2 ProductionProgressus Clean Technologies produces green H2 from waste/dilute syngas streams, leading to higher profitability and greater sustainability
  • Lower Operating Costs: Up to 80% lower electricity consumption vs conventional electrolysis
  • Safety: Inherently safe design for easier permitting and lower insurance costs
  • Capex Friendly: Modular design for mass production and reduced warranty costs
  • Scalability: Flexible sizing allows pilot testing and scaling for different use cases based on desired markets and demand profiles
  • Emission Friendly: No incremental emissions, attractive for Green & Blue hydrogen projects

The Market

  • All sectors are under immense pressure to reduce carbon emissions
  • Holding temperatures to <2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels (Paris Agreement targets) will require dramatic changes for energy and industrial producers
  • There are significant transition risks and opportunities associated with rising temperatures and the path to a low-carbon economy
  • Pledges to Paris Agreement are increasingly being viewed as insufficient to meet global temperature rise targets <2 degrees Celsius

  • Net-Zero is the new goal post and many countries are setting net-zero targets
  • Experts, such as the IEA, have developed scenarios for the transition to net-zero emissions (see graph below)

IEA Roadmap to Net-Zero by 2050 (Gt CO2)

  • Hydrogen market expected to grow significantly with the transition to low-carbon fuels
  • Hydrogen highlighted as an alternative fuel during the oil crisis in the 1970s gained momentum in 1990s and 2000s as emission reduction policies began
  • Hydrogen demand has increased 4x since 1975 and is expected to continue this trend long-term
  • Hydrogen is now the leading clean energy solution for achieving global GHG reductions and energy sustainability

Hydrogen demand has increased 4x since 1975
