A new plant for manufacturing sodium silicide (Na4Si4;diagram), a non-flammable, air-stable powder that reacts with water to generate pure hydrogen, is under development near Niagara Falls, N.Y. by SiGNa Chemistry Inc. (New York; Scheduled for startup in the third quarter of 2013, the facility will produce 1,000 ton/yr of sodium silicide using a proprietary thermal process that was...

At Achema 2012 (June 18–22; Frankfurt am Main, Germany), Union Engineering A/S (Fredericia, Denmark; will be presenting its patented FlashCO2 process — both at the exhibition (Hall 9.1, Stand E29) and in a congress lecture (Monday, June 18th at 11:30 in the room Illusion 2). FlashCO2 enables liquid CO2 to be produced from H2 plants at a direct operating cost of around...

A group from the University of Canterbury (, and Industrial Research Ltd. (both Christchurch, New Zealand;, has produced hydrogen from ethanol via steam reforming in a non-thermal plasma reactor. The project is part of an Industrial Research concept called Hylink that proposes using H2 as an energy storage medium and carrier for remote-area power systems. Current...

The Micro Auto Gasification System (MAGS) is a compact solid-waste disposal system that is designed for energy-efficient operation onboard naval vessels, in forward-operating military bases and in other isolated installations. Developed by the Office of Naval Research (ONR; Arlington, Va.; and Terragon Environmental Technologies Inc. (Montreal, Ont.;, the MAGS uses...

Ammonia borane’s (AB) capacity to contain and easily release large amounts of hydrogen has made it an attractive candidate to store the gas for onboard fuel-cell powered vehicles. A major technological hurdle that remains is how to reintroduce hydrogen to spent AB in an energy-efficient way. Now, a team comprised of researchers from Los Alamos National Laboratory (Los Alamos, N.M.; and...
