Haffner Energy launches new roll-out phase for its green H2 production by thermolysis of biomass technology

Haffner Energy is launching a new roll-out phase of Hynoca, its unique technology for decarbonizing and producing green H2 as well as renewable gas by thermolysis of biomass. The innovations implemented will increase the H2 production capacity of each module while reducing the footprint on the client’s site.

In this context, Haffner Energy has just signed an amendment to the contract concluded in July 2020 with R-Hynoca, a joint venture created with the company ENR (Réseau Energies Renouvelables), which is itself a subsidiary of the Strasbourg energy company R-GDS.

The initial contract specified the assembly and installation in 2021 of a pilot module with a production capacity of 11 kg of H2 per hour, followed by two additional modules in 2022 for a total production of three modules of 33 kg of H2 per hour by mid-2023.

The amendment signed on May 31, 2022, now calls for the supply to R-Hynoca of two modules producing a total of 30 kg of H2 per hour instead of the three initially planned for the same capacity. These modules will be delivered to the R-GDS site at the end of 2023. With a more efficient technology, they will also meet the space constraints of the R-GDS site.

In the meantime, Haffner Energy will install a new generation module in Strasbourg on which tests will be carried out until 1Q 2023. The two demonstration modules will be progressively moved to Haffner Energy’s future test and research and development station, whose site is currently being identified.

According to the strategy outlined at the time of its initial public offering on February 14, 2022, Haffner Energy is accelerating its investments in R&D to offer its customers, industrial consumers of H2 or gas as well as players in clean mobility, more and more efficient technological solutions that meet the strategic needs of Europe’s energy independence combined with the acceleration of its decarbonization.
