DOE Announces $20 Million to Produce Clean Hydrogen from Nuclear Power

DOE Announces $20 Million to Produce Clean Hydrogen from Nuclear Power

OxEon is partnering with PNW Hydrogen LLC, Idaho National Laboratory, the National Energy Technology Laboratory, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), Arizona State University, UC Irvine and Siemens Energy to execute a Power-to-Power demonstration at the Palo Verde Generating Station , a 4-GW #nuclear power plant in #Arizona. This program was recently funded through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s HFTO and NE offices and will make progress on the DOE's #HydrogenShot goal of $1 per 1kg in 1 decade.
OxEon will build and integrate a solid oxide electrolysis stack to produce either #hydrogen via steam electrolysis, carbon monoxide by carbon dioxide electrolysis, or a mixture of the two (#syngas (CO-H2)) by co-electrolysis of steam and carbon dioxide. The produced carbon monoxide or syngas will then be fed to an OxEon Fischer Tropsch synthesis system to demonstrate production of liquid hydrocarbon fuels in a process known as Power To Fuels (aka #PTX or #Efuels). OxEon’s technical expertise will be used in the integrated system design, as well as operation of the system.

This low-cost catalyst helps turn seawater into fuel at scale

University of Rochester chemical engineers—in collaboration with researchers at the Naval Research Laboratory, the University of Pittsburgh, and OxEon Energy—have demonstrated that a potassium-promoted molybdenum carbide catalyst efficiently and reliably converts carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide, a critical step in turning seawater into fuel.

5 KW Stack Started in Idaho

A nominal five (5) kilowatt high temperature solid oxide electrolysis stack that was designed and fabricated by OxEon was successfully started at a customer location in Idaho. The stack performance exceeded the expected performance by >10%.

Calvert Energy Group and OxEon Energy enter strategic license agreement

OxEon Energy LLC and Calvert Energy Group have completed negotiations and signed a strategic license agreement giving Calvert exclusive market rights to OxEon Gas-to-Liquids (GTL) technology in geographic areas that include Russia, Africa, the Middle East, and South America/Mexico.

OxEon Energy has received a contract from Midrex

OxEon Energy has received a contract from Midrex (purchasing agent for Kobe Steel in the United States) for multiple units of its non-thermal plasma oxidizer. The oxidizer technology was jointly developed by OxEon and Kobe personnel.
