CARBONLOOP and Haffner Energy Announce Order for Hynoca …

CARBONLOOP and HAFFNER ENERGY announced that they have signed two purchase orders for the supply, installation and commissioning by HAFFNER ENERGY of the first two HYNOCA(R) stations for the first two CARBONLOOP sites. These two orders are part of the Commercial Contract signed in October 2021. Each site will allow CARBONLOOP to produce 225 tons of hydrogen and 1,100 tons of biochar from 7,000 tons of biomass residues per year, and to sequester approximately 2,400 t CO(2) e, certified by carbon credits.CARBONLOOP will market the hydrogen to HYLIKO (Kouros Group), which will distribute it through its network of service stations for trucks. Thanks to its water retention and fertilizer properties, the biochar produced will be marketed by CARBONLOOP to the agricultural sector in order to help restore soils in a context of increasing water stress and inflation of nitrogenizers. The first CARBONLOOP site will be located in Villab (Essonne), near the HYLIKO distribution station, ideally situated along the A6 motorway, south of Paris.The hydrogen produced from biomass residues will supply the first trucks in the Paris region. The second site will be unveiled by CARBONLOOP during 2023. These orders are a confirmation for HAFFNER ENERgy of the relevance of its HYNOCA┬«?technology to produce hydrogen and biochar from biomass residues. The result of nearly a decade of research and development, the HYNOCA(R”) technology produces hydrogen from biomass residues in three stages: a thermolysis unit during which the heated biomass is broken down into a solid residue (biochar) and a gas that is then refined in a high-temperature cracking unit and finally purified in a third unit to retain only the hydrogen. Because it produces biochar recognized as a sustainable carbon sink by the IPCC, the HYNOCA┬«?process produces renewable hydrogen and removes CO(2) from the atmosphere in a sustainable way. In the current context of high energy prices, these two projects offer an interesting valorization of biomass residues, contribute to the accelerated decarbonization of road freight transport and to soil restoration. Biomass thermolysis offers a complementary and agile response to water electrolysis for the production of renewable hydrogen, serving the resilience of territories and the development of their local resources.
