MHI's Monolith Investment Supports Hydrogen Prod. (Ind. Report)
Monolith Materials,Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America,
Date: 2020-12-02
In the Cornhusker State, Lincoln-based Monolith Materials, Inc. is reporting receipt of an investment from Houston-headquartered Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, Inc. (MHI) to support its commercial-scale, emissions-free hydrogen manufacturing technology at its Olive Creek 1 in Hallam --the company's first commercial-scale emissions-free production facility designed to produce approximately 14,000 metric tpy of carbon black along with emissions-free "turquoise" hydrogen using 100 pct renewable energy.

Monolith's process technology converts natural gas into clean hydrogen and a solid carbon material called carbon black, a critical raw material in the automotive and industrial sectors.

Combined, Monolith's production of hydrogen, emissions-free ammonia and carbon black are expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 1 million metric tpy compared to traditional manufacturing processes, according to Monolith.

KIT Atmospheric CO2-to-Carbon Black Pilot Underway (Int'l, R&D)
NOCEC,Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
Date: 2020-03-27
In Germany, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is reporting the NECOC Technologies for Negative Greenhouse Gas Emissions Research Project is now under way.

In the NECOC research project, an integrated pilot plant is being constructed to test a new process for reducing the greenhouse gas CO2 in the atmosphere and to produce carbon black -- a high-quality, solid carbon with industrial applications.

Project partners include INERATEC GmbH, a spinoff of KIT, and Climeworks AG, a spinoff of ETH Zurich. The research project, scheduled for a duration of three years, is funded with a total of €1.5 million by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
