Brief description of H2-XERONOX®
H2-XERONOX® prototype with Harmonic Resonance Combustion (pressure swing adsorption is under development)

White Hydrogen and H2-XERONOX®

Innovative technology and process for the conversion of carbon-based waste to hydrogen-rich syngas.

We have demonstrated with the H2XERONOX® pilot plant that carbon-based waste conversion to hydrogen-rich syngas is part of a pathway to a carbon-neutral society.

 See Fig. 1  Simplified flow sheet diagram.

The carbon based material undergoes thermal conversion, transforming into syngas. The syngas is then separated using a pressure swing adsorption (PSA) process, recovering high-purity Hydrogen while the remaining off-gas is utilized to supply thermal energy to Delafield’s Harmonic Resonance Combustion (HRC) system. The H2-XERONOX® technology boasts an impressive conversion efficiency greater than 100%, owing to the disassociation of water molecules, making it a cost-effective and carbon-neutral process.

Delafield’s pilot plant, utilizing the H2-XERONOX® technology, can produce up to 100 kg of hydrogen daily. Additionally, the system is fully scalable and modular. In a test run, the pilot plant successfully converted wast cooking oil, crude glycerol HDPE plastic to H2-rich syngas, with gas chromatography analysis revealing a Hydrogen concentration close to 80% mol%, confirming the feasibility of converting carbon-based material to hydrogen-rich syngas and producing 99.999% pure Hydrogen.

This innovative technology is a net zero-emission system that’s flexible, scalable, and relatively inexpensive, making it a practical solution for businesses looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
