Flexible hybrid separation system for hydrogen recovery from natural gas grids

The key objective of the HyGrid project is the design, scale-up and demonstration at industrially relevant conditions a novel membrane based hybrid technology for the direct separation of hydrogen from natural gas grids. The focus of the project will be on the hydrogen separation through a combination of membranes, electrochemical separation and temperature swing adsorption to be able to decrease the total cost of hydrogen recovery.

Quantis will assess the environmental performance of the investigated novel hydrogen production technology, compared to reference conventional technologies, by means of environmental life cycle assessment (LCA).
