The HyNet Low Carbon Hydrogen Project comprises the development and deployment of a 100kNm3/hr hydrogen production and supply facility to be sited at Essar Oil’s Stanlow refinery utilising Johnson Matthey’s Low Carbon Hydrogen (LCH) technology which includes carbon capture.

It will represent the first deployment of a technology proven in other sectors to the production of clean hydrogen and will achieve this at scale, at a higher efficiency than other reforming technologies and with a very high carbon capture rate. It therefore will deliver low-cost, low carbon bulk hydrogen. This plant is core to the North West HyNet project being led by Progressive Energy Ltd and provides a foundation reference design for replication through multiple units in the North-West, elsewhere in the UK and internationally.

When associated with the HyNet carbon dioxide (CO2) transport and storage infrastructure, this delivers low-cost, low carbon hydrogen for key industrials alongside nondisruptive blending to over two million households as part of delivering a net-zero industrial cluster in the region.
