Hydrogen BECCS Innovation Programme Phase 2: projects awarded funding

Congratulations to the recipients of funding from the UK Government's Hydrogen BECCS Innovation Programme. Five organisations, including 4 micro- and small- sized enterprises, have been awarded a total of £21.2 million of funding to deliver commercially viable hydrogen BECCS innovations. Further information on the recipients are provided in the attached link. However, in short they are the following:

1. Compact Syngas Solutions Ltd (CCS), who have developed an advanced gasification process;

2. KEW Projects Limited, who will demonstrate carbon capture technologies and fuel-cell vehicle grade hydrogen production at their Sustainable Energy Centre;

3. CATAGEN Limited, who as a net-zero business is applying thier recirculating-gas reactor technology, known as the ClimaHtech BIOHGEN reactor, to develop a cost-effective method of producing low-carbon biohydrogen;

4. Environmental Power International (UK R&D) Limited (EPi), who has developed a unique pure pyrolysis technology for the treatment of waste and other organic feedstocks; and

5. United Utilities Water Limited, who intends to create a sustainable feed source for the production of hydrogen and graphene using Levidian's LOOP process.

Do you have an innovation in the hydrogen sector? If so, our patent and trademark experts look forward to helping you protect your IP in the hydrogen sector.

£21.2 million of funding was awarded for the project demonstration stage of the Programme, with up to £5 million of funding awarded per project. The Phase 2 competition was open to all projects that successfully completed Phase 1 across 3 technology categories: 1. Feedstock pre-processing: the development of low cost, energy and material efficient technologies which will optimise biogenic (including biomass and waste) feedstocks for use in Advanced Gasification Technologies; 2. Gasification components: the development of Advanced Gasification Technology components focusing on improving syngas quality and upgrading for generation of hydrogen; and 3. Novel biohydrogen technologies: the development of novel biohydrogen technologies which can be combined with carbon capture. such as dark fermentation, anaerobic digestion, waste water treatment.
