Anatomy of a Hydrogen Fitting

Hydrogen must be stored at high pressures to achieve the energy density required for use in fuel cell vehicles and infrastructure. This presentation will demonstrate the performance attributes required of fittings used in these systems.

As a small-molecule gas, hydrogen can migrate through tiny crevices and diffuse into the materials designed to contain them. Also, high storage and dispensing pressures, as well as rapid thermal and pressure changes, are challenges for the processing of hydrogen as a fuel source. Specification of high-performing fluid system fittings designed for these challenging applications will help ensure the long-term, leak-tight operation of the system.

Green horizons: Hydrogen development in Europe and Asia-Pacific

This webcast will examine the development of hydrogen projects, technology applications and markets in Europe and Asia-Pacific, the two regions driving global low-carbon hydrogen production and demand. In the transportation fuel segment alone, nearly 600 hydrogen refueling stations were deployed worldwide as of the end of 2020, with half of these located in Asia-Pacific and one-third located in Europe. Low-carbon hydrogen production and use will be discussed for a range of applications, including fuel and chemical processing, transportation fuel, energy storage and power generation, natural gas blending and others.

Affordable blue hydrogen production

Are you…

  • Under pressure to decarbonise your existing operations?
  •  A resource holder looking for ways to thrive through the energy transition and create value from natural gas by become a low-carbon energy producer?

With carbon dioxide costs at $25–35/t, blue hydrogen is already competitive against grey and, according to the International Energy Agency, green hydrogen will remain more expensive beyond 2030. For greenfield projects, oxygen-based hydrogen production systems offer advantages over steam methane reforming. In a recent example, the Shell Blue Hydrogen Process cut the levelized cost of hydrogen by 22% compared with autothermal reforming through reducing capital expenditure by 17% and operating expenditure by 34%.

Register to learn about the economic advantages of blue hydrogen production using the highly integrated Shell Blue Hydrogen Process based on mature Shell partial oxidation and pre-combustion carbon dioxide adsorption technologies.

We will:

  • Explain why the world needs blue hydrogen;
  • Examine which technologies are best for greenfield applications;
  • Show how the Shell Blue Hydrogen Process can reduce the levelized cost of hydrogen by 10–25%; and
  • Demonstrate the technologies’ maturity with reference to case studies.
