What we do.

 

Pink H2 Ltd have developed a zero-carbon H2 (hydrogen) production method called Resonant Control Electrolysis.

 

RCE is many times more energy and cost efficient than Alkaline or PEM electrolysis, enabling the retailing of hydrogen for approximately € 2.50 per kg, whereas H2 produced by existing methods is retailing at  € 10 -15 per kg

Hydrogen – a key strategy for zero-carbon industrial applications.


Hydrogen is at the core of the climate strategies of China, Japan, California and the EU Green Deal, because it can be used to produce energy for many industrial applications without CO2 emissions and the only emissions are water. However the existing methods of production, transport and storage of H2 are beset with high costs and difficulties in implementation.


The Pink H2 story told in reverse


• A Truck owner retrofits a new truck with H2 dual fuel technology which costs him € 55k. Mileage of 85,000 miles per year, 8 yrs. Truck fills with Pink H2 at €2.50 per kg. On average he uses 70% H2 and 30% diesel when HRS’s are not available. He saves € 12,000 per year over 8 years (including the amortization of the H2 retrofits costs). The truck owner is very happy. He tells his daughter that his trucks emit nearly zero CO2.


• A Petrol station owner gets a Pink H2 HRS (Hydrogen refuel station). He retails H2 at € 2.50 per kg, it costs him about € 1.38 /kg. His profit on a H2 truck for each 100km it travels is € 9.34. When he sells diesel at €1.17/litre he only gets € 1.72 profit for each 100km on a truck.

The H2 fuel station owner is very happy. He tells his daughter that soon he will only sell H2 and stop selling diesel.


• Pink H2 JV partner sales agent sells the RCE equipment to the HRS. The agent has an agreed share of the margin. The agent also receives an agreed portion of the ongoing royalties on each kg of H2 sold which are included in the retail price. The agent is very happy, motivated and proud to be in an industry that is zero-carbon.


• Pink H2 JV Marketing division has a share of the margin and of the ongoing royalties on each kg of H2 sold. The marketing division is happy but wishes the factory could produce more.


The Pink H2 10GW JV factory churns out RCE technology as fast as it can. The marketing division asks for more output. The factory unit makes a profit margin of 42%, significantly above typical margins.

The JV factory is happy, profitable and plans to increase output.


 


How 'green' is green hydrogen production.


Hydrogen is categorized by colours according to the method of production.

Grey hydrogen is produced from natural gas using SMR (steam methane reformation)  is the cheapest method at present, but it emits 7-9 kg's of CO2 per kg of H2.

Blue H2 is produced by SMR with CCS (Carbon Capture & Storage) which can capture up to 90% of the CO2 but CCS drives up the costs. Blue H2 production emits 1.4 - 2 kg's of CO2 per kg of H2.


Green H2 is produced using electrolysis using 100% RE (Renewable Electricity),  but the costs are high, and solar has a large footprint.

The intermittency of RE supply causes under-utilization of capital equipment which increases costs, and if the electricity is supplemented by grid electricity, then it produces large amounts of CO2 emissions and it is no longer ‘Green’ H2.


'Green' hydrogen produced using the grid in Norway, which has 97% RE, emits 1 kg of CO2 per kg of H2.

'Green' hydrogen produced using RE in the UK, which is supplemented by grid electricity when no RE is available emits 13kg of CO2 per kg of H2.



Pink H2 is always zero-carbon H2.
