Johnson Matthey and 8 Rivers collaborate on blue hydrogen
The JM and 8 Rivers collaboration will increase technology options for clean hydrogen production.
Johnson Matthey and 8 Rivers Capital have signed an MoU to collaborate to commercialise 8 Rivers’ clean hydrogen process (8RH2).
The collaboration will combine 8 River’s carbon capture technology with Johnson Matthey’s blue hydrogen technology LCH.
The integrated solution is a highly efficient process to produce clean hydrogen and is ready to be deployed to tackle the world’s net-zero needs immediately.
This collaboration aims to accelerate the roll-out of global projects producing clean fuels, incorporating up to nearly 100% carbon capture. These clean fuels could include hydrogen, ammonia and sustainable aviation fuels.
Johnson Matthey’s LCH technology is based on autothermal and gas heated reforming technologies that enable hydrogen production with 98% less emissions when compared to conventional technology.
Jane Toogood, Executive at Johnson Matthey, said, “This collaboration will help JM further strengthen our leading position in deploying low emission hydrogen technologies at scale.”
Cam Hosie, Chief Executive of 8 Rivers Capital, noted, “Hydrogen will play a critical role in helping the world to achieve net-zero targets by addressing hard-to-decarbonise sectors, from fertiliser manufacture to global shipping fleets.”
Previously, 8 Rivers Capital have executed a comprehensive collaboration agreement with JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration Corporation, and JX Nippon Oil Exploration (USA) Limited to collaborate on the acceleration of the decarbonisation of power and hydrogen generation globally.
