BHYO

The BHYO WAY

Phase 1: Kick-Off

The first step is an exchange between BHYO and the municipality. Here, the basic idea and the general structure of a potential project are discussed. The contact can be established in two ways:

Approachment from BHYO

BHYO is actively seeking suitable municipalities to expand the national hydrogen network

Phase 2: Conception

When conception the plants, the scope of the projects is determined in workshops on the basis of various variables. The size of the plants and the biomass input can be flexibly adjusted to the biomass supply and the hydrogen demand:

IDENTIFICATION OF THE BIOMASS SUPPLY

Depending on its size, a BHYO plant can process up to 17,500 tons of biomass. The size of the plant can be adapted to the available supply of biomass. Typical biomass sources are:

Identification of the hydrogen demand

Due to its versatility in use as a storage and connection technology, hydrogen is considered one of the key technologies of the national energy transition. Depending on the community, hydrogen demand and use can vary greatly. Typical areas of application for hydrogen are:

SELECTION OF THE PLANT SIZE

Based on the two previous factors, the ideal plant size for the municipality can be determined. Basically, a distinction is made between three sizes, which differ in the amount of hydrogen produced per hour

BH25

0 kg hydrogen per hour from 0.3 tons of biomass

BH50

0 kg hydrogen per hour from 0.6 tons of biomass

BH100

0 kg hydrogen per hour from 1.2 tons of biomass

SHARES IN THE PROJECT COMPANY

If required, BHYO establishes a project company at the beginning, which is responsible for the future management of the plant. BHYO also supports the municipality in setting up sustainable structures and acts as licensor and shareholder beyond the project phase. Depending on the financing model, the shares of the stakeholder groups involved in the project company can vary:

Municipal Investment

Institutional Cooperation

Active Citizen Involvement

grants

The municipal share can be supplemented by subsidies

Phase 3: Plant Construction

Following the conceptual design, the construction of the plant begins. BHYO delivers a holistic package that goes beyond conventional plant construction and involves local companies to create or strengthen sustainable structures:

Involvement of local companies

Infrastructure development

Afforestation of
surrounding land

Establishment of autonomous structures

Supervised Go-Live

Phase 4: Go-Live

After completion of the project phase, the plant can be used to produce green hydrogen from the regionally produced biomass. BHYO supports the municipality in the start-up phase. The hydrogen produced can be used in various industries in the municipality as required:

Storage

Hydrogen is considered a core technology of the national energy transition due to its high storage potential and transportability. The comprehensive potential of gas allows energy to be stored efficiently and transported over long distances by using the already existing gas network.

Power

The stored hydrogen can be used to compensate for electricity deficits in the RE-grid of the future. Such deficits occur particularly frequently in the winter months, when there is little sun and little wind

Heat

Hydrogen can already be used today in hydrogen heating systems to generate heat. Compared to gas or oil heating systems, this is a CO2-neutral ressource

Usage

Due to its versatility, hydrogen is also considered the connection technology of the future. The full potential of the gas is far from exhausted. Hydrogen is already being used today in transportation and numerous other industries

Mobility

Hydrogen is expected to play an important role not only in passenger transport, but also in shipping, aviation and the public transportation network. Because the gas scores particularly well where batteries lose out: For long distances, batteries are simply too heavy

Raw material

Hydrogen is also expected to play a decisive role as a raw material in industry. In the chemical and steel industries in particular, the gas is already being traded today as a valid alternative to fossil fuels

Regional Benefits

Dual Cashflow

Revenues from the production of renewable hydrogen

Cost savings through biomass utilization instead of disposal

Regional Empowerment

Establishment of regional networks through municipal projects

Revenues from plant operation

autonomy

Independence in residual waste disposal

Regional hydrogen and energy supply
