Fuel Cells In Reverse – Convion aims for industrial-scale hydrogen production through high-temperature electrolysis

Convion, a producer of fuel cell systems, is developing electrolysis for hydrogen production with superior properties and efficiency compared with competing technologies. The product is being developed in a separate project in parallel with the E-Fuel project run by Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT). The project receives funding from Business Finland.

Convion Partners up with VTT, Neste to Develop Electrofuels

Commercialisation of electrofuels, a class of synthetic transportation fuels produced from green hydrogen and sequestered carbon dioxide, got a boost, when a Finnish consortium partnership of companies joined forces in a VTT coordinated E-fuel research project. The project brings together a group of companies across the entire value chain from sequestration of CO2 to electricity and fuel production, logistics, as well as users of the transport fuels in different segments of transport. The E-fuel research project is connected with the Neste Veturi ecosystem and received EUR 3.3 million in funding from Business Finland. Along with the joint E-Fuel project, Convion and other companies have their parallel but linked projects, augmenting the total effort aiming at e-fuel production in Finland. Altogether, EUR 6 million is invested in the development.

DEMOSOFC webinars – Fuel cells in industrial biogas applications

DEMOSOFC - the world's first industrial scale demonstration of waste water treatment with integrated power generation by SOFC fuel cells
DEMOSOFC – lessons learned

Interested in how integrated power generation by SOFC fuel cells can transform waste and water management from an energy consumer to an energy producer? Want to discover details of engineering and performance of the worlds first installation of SOFC fuel cells in a waste water treatment facility? To learn more, join us in a series of short webinars organized by the DEMOSOFC project, focusing on different aspects of applying fuel flexible SOFC fuel cell technology to industrial scale bio gas applications. In the 15-20 minute web presentations and following Q&A sessions, DEMOSOFC project partners will share their insights and experiences of engineering, operation and economics of this exciting application of fuel cell technology and Convion products.

For details on how to get to the venue, please see the info provided by the organizers of the event. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Capturing the energy of waste water

Supply of clean water and efficient management of waste water are among the most vital urban environmental services. For communities, water related services are also often the biggest energy consumers – underlining the significance of water-energy nexus. It is therefore easy to view waste as a problem to be mitigated, something to be reduced to a tolerable level, and kept out of sight. Another mind-set is possible. Organic waste contains significant quantities of energy embedded in it. The facts that these streams of organic matter are distributed across our communities, trickle down in small streams and have low energy density, have made it difficult to capture that energy anywhere else but in locations with large populations and high population densities. A European project DEMOSOFC showcases a replicable concept by which power generation can be integrated into water services at superb efficiency in small and medium sized facilities, too, making good use of modular nature of fuel cells and fuel flexibility of SOFC technology. The video below presents the concept by an example from Collegno waste water treatment facility of SMAT in Turin region, Italy.
