USHA member, University of Wyoming, and partners Los Alamos National Laboratory, Engineering Procurement & Construction for H2 (EPC LLC) are at the forefront of a transformative approach to hydrogen production. As part of the 'Funding Opportunity Announcement 2400: Clean Hydrogen Production, Storage, Transport and Utilization to Enable a Net-Zero Carbon Economy (Round 3)', they're leveraging water from oil and gas extraction by merging supercritical water desalination and oxidation with steam methane reforming (SMR). The synergy of these heat-intensive processes promises significant energy savings. What is the team's ambitious target? A stellar 15% cost reduction in SMR technologies, producing around one ton of hydrogen daily.
