Using LOHC technology to store energy

The solution for the great problem to store energy

Electricity is used to produce hydrogen from water through electrolysis. The hydrogen is chemically bound in Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC), an oily organic liquid. LOHC energy storage systems are

safe,

environmentally friendly (emission-free),

scalable and

have an almost unlimited storage capacity.

The charged LOHC+ can be stored and transported at ambient temperature and pressure. Fuel cells can then be used to produce emission-free electricity from the LOHC+. The discharged LOHC- can be recharged. The energy storage capacity of our technology is decoupled from the installed power of a unit (due to inexpensive LOHC tanks), which makes our solution more cost efficient than any other traditional “battery“ for large scale energy storage.

H2-Industries and the SDGs

Our goal is to preserve the planet for humans. We have the groundbreaking solutions for current energy supply and mobility problems.

We are not looking for problems, but deliver the solutions.

Clean water

Clean water protects people from disease, yet three in 10 people lack access to it.

Clean Energy

Targets for 2030 include using more renewable, affordable energy.

Industry and infrastructure

This involves building resilient infrastructure and fostering innovation.

Sustainability

The UN wants to increase affordable housing and make settlements inclusive, safe and sustainable.

Climate action

Urgent action is needed, by regulating emissions and promoting renewable energy.

Life underwater

The aim is to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources.

Life on land

To stop degradation, we must preserve forest, desert and mountain ecosystems.

Partnership

If all countries are to achieve the goals, international cooperation is vital.
