Alternatives to Gas Flaring (2024 Program)

The report provides a comprehensive review of the technology landscape for flare gas utilization, covering major licensors and emerging technologies. The economic analyses cover production cost estimates for gas-to-liquids (GTL), gas-to-LNG, and gas-to-CNG technologies. Given the case-specific nature of the economic viability of gas flaring alternatives, key assumptions are detailed with each technology assessed against the same associated gas feeds (wet and dry). The report discusses the key factors influencing the economic viability of the different utilization routes. Additionally, it includes extensive discussion on flaring regulation and drivers in the key emitting regions as defined by the World Bank’s global gas flaring tracker report 2024.

Hydrogen Peroxide (2024 Program)

Hydrogen peroxide is one of the most powerful oxidizing agents known. Global demand is forecast to grow by an average of nearly five percent per annum. Current capacity is almost exclusively based on the anthraquinone auto-oxidation process. However, R&D developments are focused on progressing a direct synthesis process (i.e., without the use of an anthraquinone working compound). An estimate for the carbon intensity levels is included for all currently utilized processes. Process economics are provided for production facilities located in the United States, Western Europe, Middle East, and China. Regional production capacities are also provided.

Key Pathways for Red, Purple, and Pink Hydrogen (2024 Program)

Red, purple, pink hydrogen provides key tangible, feasible, and viable pathways towards definitive global and regional decarbonization of supply/value chains with zero greenhouse gas emissions. Also, as part of an optimal energy mix, this includes, but not limited to, being an effective energy carrier for fuels, feedstocks, and production of downstream chemicals. In addition, providing enhanced reliability, resilience, and availability of baseload and peaking supply of electricity and hydrogen for wholesale and retail end-customers. Commercially advanced technologies via small modular reactors and proven processes via electrolysis and thermolysis are paving the way forward.

Advanced Battery Energy Storage Systems (2024 Program)

Advanced battery energy storage systems (BESS) are growing in importance with declining costs and increased integration with intermittent renewable power sources (e.g., solar PV and wind). Advanced BESS units plus renewable power are becoming a greater part of overall power generation mix while reducing carbon footprint, achieving decarbonization targets, and enhancing sustainability. Advanced BESS units also play an important role in many commercial and industrial applications as well as production of green ammonia, green methanol, and renewable and specialty chemicals’ industries. Current BESS units’ supply chains incorporate various commercially proven battery chemistries and technologies along with efficient subsystems, equipment, and components.
