Aker Carbon Capture, a Norwegian carbon capture technology company, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Haldor Topsoe, a Danish catalysis company, on blue hydrogen production.
The cooperation will combine Haldor Topsoe’ hydrogen technology and the post-combustion carbon capture technology of Aker Carbon Capture for achieving low emission and cost-effective blue hydrogen production. Both companies plan to sign a formal partnership agreement in early 2021.
Blue hydrogen is generated from natural gas through steam methane reforming (SMR) process, though with the carbon capture technology can help reduce emission by 90%.
Valborg Lundegaard, the CEO of Aker Carbon Capture said: “Aker Carbon Capture’s proprietary amine capture technology is complementary with Haldor Topsoe’s hydrogen process, and together we can offer an integrated solution to the market,”
