Honda shows production ready fuel cell vehicle

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.

Hystorsys thermal hydrogen compressor in esteemed Norwegian Technical Magazine

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 present during seminar on biogas and composting

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?”.

ZEG Power participated in the “New energy for Norwegian offshore”-conference

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.

ZEG Power present during TCCS-8

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.

ZEG Power present during the Hannover Messe

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.

ZEG Power present during CLIMIT Summit 2015

The CLIMIT Summit was arranged for the fourth time at Soria Moria in Oslo from February 24.-25., 2015, and is an established meeting place for the CCS community.

ZEG Power presented their technology, results from the BioZEG plant as well as ongoing activities in ZEG400. The presentation was held by ZEG Power Managing Director Dr. Bjørg Andresen.

A poster session was also part of the conference, and ZEG Power took part in this as well. The ZEG Poster was presented by Senior Engineer Dr. Nicola Di Giulio.

Results from BioZEG operation presented at the Tekna CO2 conference

The first results from the recent operation of the BioZEG plant was presented at the Tekna CO2 conference in Trondheim, Norway, during January 8th-9th.

The conference gathered more than 90 participants covering a broad specter within the fields of climate policies, framework conditions as well as results from ongoing projects within capture, storage and EOR. This was the tenth time the conference was arranged for exchanging experiences and networking.

The presentation was held by ZEG Power Managing Director Dr. Bjørg Andresen.

Successful operation of BioZEG plant

In December the BioZEG plant was for the first time continuously operated for several days. The plant was gradually started up over the course of 24 hours, and delivered more than 100 kWh to the power grid during the operation period. All electricity was produced using the solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) module, which is an integrated part of the plant. The only emissions were Carbon Dioxide and water. This is a milestone for ZEG Power, and the company will in the time ahead focus on optimizing BioZEG operation and upscaling of the technology.
