ENEOS Corporation’s demonstration plant in Brisbane will being operations in February.
The plant will produce methylcyclohexane (MCH), a type of hydrogen carrier, using its proprietary low-cost ‘electrochemical synthesis of organic hydride’ method.
ENEOS has worked to scale up electrolysers using Direct MCH® technology in order to mass produce MCH derived from renewable energy (Green MCH).
The 150kW-scale medium-sized electrolyser (approximately 200 times larger than the electrolyser used in the 2021 demonstration), consists of stacked electrodes with a surface area of 3 sqm. The electrolyser realises increased efficiency in MCH production with electrodes which are nearly the largest by size that is used industrially.
The demonstration plant will produce green MCH by combining the medium-sized electrolyser with a 250kW solar power system in Queensland.
