On November 11th, the BioZEG plant was exhibited as a part of the Hydrogen Supplier Conference 2015, as an example of the potential for development in an area that very well could be Norways next industrial adventure. The conference is a joint effort by Akershus County Council, Oslo municipality, National Program for Supplier Development, OREEC and The Norwegian Hydrogen Forum. A total of 45 humans attended the exhibition of the BioZEG plant accompanied by a light serving. ZEG personnel were present to explain how the BioZEG plant works, as well as the basics of the ZEG technology.
ITM Power reports that a large coalition of European partners has launched the Hydrogen Mobility Europe project (H2ME). H2ME is co-funded with €32 million from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU). The project will support the deployment of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) and Hydrogen Refuelling Stations (HRS) across Europe. Under H2ME 200 FCEVs, 125 fuel cell range-extended electric (FC RE-EVs) commercial vans and 29 new HRSs in 10 countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the UK) will be deployed by 2019.
Norwegian Hydrogen Forum has announced that in Norway HYOP will be responsible for the establishment of a new HRS, and Hyundai will assist in the delivery of cars. “This well-coordinated project will be a crucial step for the development of hydrogen infrastructure in Europe, where Norway plays an important role” says Ulf Hafseld, Chief Executive Officer of HYOP. ZEG Power rejoices over this initiative and looks forward to assisting in the continuation.
The Hydrogen Supplier Conference 2015 is held November 11th in Lillestrøm, a joint effort by Akershus County Council, Oslo municipality, National Program for Supplier Development, OREEC and The Norwegian Hydrogen Forum
The year 2015 seems to be a very important year for the development towards low- and zero-emission transport. A number of major news about the maturation and development of both hydrogen vehicles and associated infrastructure over the past year has caused a sensation and become an important part in the discussion of upcoming new solutions.
At the conclusion of the program the BioZEG plant will be exhibited to the participants.
Honda has recently developed a hydrogen powered fuel cell vehicle, and thus is joining the increasingly longer line of other car manufacturers doing the same. Picking up where the old FCX Clarity left off, the Honda FCV Concept will represent fully-realized hydrogen fuel-cell technology. The Honda FCV Concept will debut in production-ready form just about a month from now at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. It also won’t be called FCV when it reaches showrooms; Honda is saving the actual name for the car’s Tokyo debut.
The refueling time is claimed to be 3 to 5 minutes, with a range of 480 kilometres. ZEG Power wishes the hydrogen cars welcome, and is prepared to do its part in supplying them with hydrogen.

The plant that BioZEG is a part of also holds other interesting technologies, among them a hydrogen compressor from Hystorsys. In this weeks “Teknisk ukeblad” an article (in Norwegian) is dedicated to the exciting Hystorsys thermal hydrogen compressor concept – the compressor uses thermal energy to compress hydrogen and has no movable parts.

ZEG Power was present during the Avfall Norge seminar on biogas and composting held on September 24th – 25th, where topics related to the production of biogas, bio fertilizer, compost and current issues surrounding biological waste were discussed. This year’s seminar took place in Lillehammer and included a visit to the New Mjøsa-facility.
The ZEG Power Managing Director Dr. Bjørg Andresen participated with a presentation (in Norwegian) about hydrogen and ZEG technology entitled: “Are we moving towards a technology convergence? Is Hydrogen the fuel of the future?”.
There is a huge potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and costs associated with the Norwegian shelf. The “New energy for Norwegian offshore”-conference was held on August 25 by the Research Council of Norway, Enova and Innovation Norway, which aims to mobilize the supply industry within the Renewables and petroleum sector to find radically new energy solutions for oil and gas installations and offshore operations that may lead to increased energy efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions.
ZEG Power looked at the possibility of using offshore SOFC, and participated with the presentation “Technologies for a more energy efficient Norwegian continental shelf – What about high temperature fuel cells (SOFC)?”, held by the ZEG Power Managing Director Dr. Bjørg Andresen.
The Trondheim Carbon Capture & Storage (TCCS) Conference is staged bi-annually (this year on June 16-18th), and is organized by BIGCCS-International CCS Research Centre under auspices of NTNU and SINTEF. Around 350 participants from 26 countries with 160 presentation and 100 posters were hosted this year, in 6 parallel sessions. The objective of the conference is to attract the international scientific community, including R&D institutions, universities and industry, to discuss about the research and development of CCS.
ZEG Power was present during the 2 days of the conference and ZEG Power Senior Engineer Dr. Nicola Di Giulio gave an oral presentation on “BioZEG power plant operation” during one of the two sessions on carbon negative solutions.
The Hannover Messe is the world’s biggest industrial fair, and is held on the Hannover fairground in Hannover, Germany. The fair is held annually in April, with exhibitors from all fields of industrial technology.
Hydrogen, fuel cells and batteries are exhibited as a group in the energy part of the exhibition. With more than 140 different exhibitors this is Europe largest and most important hydrogen, fuel cells and batteries exhibition. ZEG Power was present during the fair as a part of the joint initiative of the Norwegian Hydrogen Forum together with NEL Hydrogen, Hystorsys, Hexagon Raufoss and CerPoTech.
The BioZEG plant – demonstration of high efficiency carbon negative energy production was presented in the Technical Forum, a part of the exhibition.
