H2Gen

Context

The global H2 fuel cell transportation market and the U.S. industrial hydrogen market are both expected to surpass $1 billion by 2025.

The growing number of fuel cell vehicles demands for hydrogen filling stations (sites with <300 kg/day).

Problem

Significant challenges remain regarding the costs and logistics of supplying hydrogen to filling stations.

The traditional “hub and spoke” delivery model has logistical challenges and high transportation costs, and the new on-site hydrogen production technologies (SMR or electrolysis), have reliability issues and high operational costs.

Solution

SynGen proposes H2Gen, a compact unit that can economically produce up to 300 kg/day of hydrogen on-site, using a mass-produced engine and natural gas from pipeline infrastructure.

This technology will enable economical small-scale conversion of natural gas across many platforms, leading to a rapid growth of the hydrogen market.
