Relocation and expansion of the test facility

we are supported by the BMWK!

Last month, after a long lead time, we received the funding decision for our test system project just in time for the budget freeze. Our project is being funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK) as part of the "Climate-neutral heating and cooling" funding call of the German government's 7th Energy Research Program.

The funding is used to demonstrate hydrogen production with our patented bhyo hydrogen technologywhich will enable us to efficiently recycle locally produced biogenic waste in the future. In future, this would no longer require expensive and energy-inefficient incineration or composting. Our project thus ties in with issues of regional and renewable energy supply in the national energy transition and, in addition to the production of biogenic hydrogen, is also investigating the generation of district heating from the plant's waste heat and the capture of carbon dioxide within the process.

The dismantling and transportation of the existing reformer test facility from the previous site in Heinsberg to our project site in Speyer has been underway since the end of the year. 

At the start of the new year, the funded phase of the project will now begin, in which the already tested experimental reformer will be supplemented by further key technologies for the production of hydrogen.

The expansion of the facility is due to be completed by the end of 2024. This will be followed by the first test runs, which will continue until the end of 2025. The funded total duration of the project is 2.5 years, during which we will work closely with our project partners from the municipal, scientific and commercial sectors.

Our project partners are the German Biomass Research Center (DBFZ)which DBI Gas and Environmental Technologythat Fraunhofer Institute ISIwhich TH Bingen and the Speyer municipal utilities.

In the coming weeks we will post more about the test facility project and keep you updated on our journey to the project goal.
