Get prepared for hydrogen addition to natural gas, get HYREADY!

Challenge

Energy-intensive industrial production processes, for example in the glass, food and ceramic sectors, have a major challenge to decarbonise existing heating processes. A fast and sustainable route to reduce the carbon intensity of these processes is to replace natural gas with hydrogen. However, the technology for this is not yet available. Under the leadership of Celsian and DNV, an international industry consortium has been set up with the aim of developing combustion technology to prepare for a gradual transition from natural gas to hydrogen. This research program provides important building blocks for the roll-out of the sustainable hydrogen value chain.

Project goal

The goal of this project is to develop industrial burners that can cope with natural gas/hydrogen blends ranging from 0-100% hydrogen. The industrial burners will and are be tested in the combustion lab at DNV. Additionally the changes in combustion properties and heat transfer to the load when switching from natural gas to hydrogen will be investigated. Within this study NOx mitigating measures will be developed and tested and design rules for new build furnaces for hydrogen combustion will be given.
