SK ecoplant to develop technology in manufacturing hydrogen 20 times faster
SK ecoplant Co. plans to develop a technology to produce hydrogen through a fermentation process where microorganisms eat and decompose organic matter in the absence of light
When compared to the current approach of extracting methane gas from organic waste resources and then reforming it into hydrogen, this technology can cut the time needed for the manufacture of hydrogen by more than 20 times.
Additionally, because it does not require a reforming process that demands a high temperature of more than 1,000 degrees Celsius, it can lower the number of fossil fuels needed to create a high-temperature environment.
The South Korean builder will jointly carry out the state project “Future Hydrogen Original Technology Development” launched by the National Research Foundation of Korea.
SK ecoplant will be in charge of doing market and patent research as well as choosing the organic waste resources that will be used to produce hydrogen.
