Technical Presentation: Enhanced Hydrogen Recovery –  turning coal from a source to a sink of CO2

Abstract Cvictus’s patented and proprietary Enhanced Hydrogen Recovery (EHR™) technology can produce clean hydrogen with lower carbon intensity than green hydrogen from hydropower and at a cost that’s less than half the cost of hydrogen from SMRs. EHR™ extracts hydrogen-rich synthesis gas (syngas) from ultra-deep coal and brine and re-injects associated CO2 back into the …
