Webinar - Renewable DME and its role in supporting the global net zero pathway

DME (dimethyl ether) is a clean, colorless gas that has remarkable potential for use as automotive fuel, for power generation, and in industrial and domestic applications for heating and cooking.  Bolstered by government support and industry commitments to reach carbon neutrality, this movement has ignited a fresh wave of investments aimed at advancing the scale-up and deployment of sustainable, low carbon fuels – a category that includes Renewable DME.  Renewable DME can assume a crucial role in driving the global energy transition movement leveraging on existing infrastructure to deliver a low carbon fuel solution.This webinar will highligh the applications of renewable DME and its role in supporting the global net zero pathway.  The content of this webinar is sourced from the report Biorenewable Insights: Renewable DME.To listen to the presentation, please contact your Account Manager for the password.

Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC) (2024 Program)

The use of liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHC) is an alternative to transporting hydrogen without the need for pipeline infrastructure or hydrogen liquefaction. Instead, organic materials are hydrogenated at the hydrogen production source, transported to their destination, and dehydrogenated to release the hydrogen for use. The bulk transportation of organic liquids is commonplace, relatively low cost, and well established, thus simplifying the movement of hydrogen via LOHC. With the growing demand for green hydrogen to support decarbonization efforts worldwide, LOHC is emerging as a practical means of transporting hydrogen from production sites to consumption sites. This report provides an overview of LOHC technologies. The report also includes a technology readiness level (TRL) summary of LOHC options, carbon intensity analysis, and discussion related to the cost of transporting hydrogen for various LOHC types. Comparisons with other hydrogen transportation options such as liquefied hydrogen and ammonia are also presented.

Biorenewable Insights: Biomass Energy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) & Biomass with Carbon Removal and Storage (BiCRS) (2024 Program)

The technoeconomics and carbon intensities related to biomass energy with carbon capture and sequestration (BECCS) and biomass carbon removal and storage (BiCRS) for different types of biomass is presented in this report. To achieve commitments by circa 2050, industries of different economic sectors require renewable energy and renewable feedstocks, as well as heat and power. Utilizing biomass, BECCS or BiCRS reduces the carbon emissions to net neutral or even net negative emissions. However, there are uncertainties of the impacts of using vast amounts of biomass for decarbonization. The amount of mitigated carbon captured (removed and/or sequestered) when using biomass is subjected due to various factors, such as indirect and direct land use change (ILUC/LUC), fertilizer usage, the resulting soil conditions. In addition, the impact varies for different types of biomass, crops or agricultural or plantation wastes. Taking these factors into account, the report assesses case studies and correlates the cost of production with the carbon intensities, with estimates of alternative biomass prices for both BECCS and BiCRS.
