Move that Hydrogen:  A closer look at the various Hydrogen Transportation Pathways
Sertan Cansu, Fluor

Direct electrification of processes within industrial and mobility sectors is often an option to achieve carbon neutral solutions. However, processes such as steel making, long-haul aviation and shipping are hard-to-decarbonise sectors and require molecules for energy input rather than electrons due to their specific chemical properties, energy density and storability.

Hydrogen has been identified as a key input for reaching decarbonisation targets by many countries. To create a climate-neutral Europe, the European Hydrogen Backbone (EHB) initiative has been established by the participation of thirty-one energy infrastructure operators. The EHB aims to accelerate the EU’s decarbonisation journey by defining the critical role of hydrogen infrastructure.

The EU’s strategy aims to install electrolysers within Europe, as well as promoting the large-scale import of clean hydrogen from regions with a lower cost profile.

Large monetary funds are being set up for clean hydrogen production.

Another key component of the clean hydrogen economy that is often overlooked is the challenge associated with large-scale transportation of clean hydrogen and its derivatives from low-cost production sites to end-markets.

What is the best way (safe, economical, scalable) to transport hydrogen across continents? Ammonia, gaseous (compressed) hydrogen, liquefied hydrogen, or Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC)?

A holistic study that covers all the abovementioned pathways is considered to evaluate the challenges and opportunities associated with each path. Due to different maturity of each process and availability of transportation means, a high-level evaluation and comparison of these pathways rather than the exact costs, will be presented.


12:00 - 12:30 BST

Industrial H2 Storage Infrastructure – Solid State, Safe, Efficient
Alfons Geueke, GKN Hydrogen

GKN Hydrogen will provide an overview of its green hydrogen energy storage solutions and share projects that already have been deployed.

The speech will refer especially to how storage in metal hydride works and why it is upmost safe.

Finally, GKN´s modular engineering approach will be presented allowing for individual tailored projects up to large-scale industrial applications - from kg to tons of hydrogen.

The existing certification status and compliance to existing standards will complete the presentation.

Sertan Cansu

Sertan Cansu is a Senior Process Engineer at Fluor Amsterdam Office. He holds Master of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from Bogazici University (TR) where he also obtained his BSc degree. He has a total of 15 years  work experience in the Refinery and Petrochemical Industry. Besides working as a process engineer, he worked  also for the operational analytics and performance management; masterplan and decarbonization studies of the Refinery-Petrochemical Complex in strategy & portfolio and capital investment departments.

The presentation is the result of his study to develop himself for the changing norms of the industry along the path of the energy transition. 

Alfons Geueke has been Business Development Director at GKN Hydrogen since 2019. Prior to his current position, he held various positions within GKN. From 2014 to 2018, he was the Director of Global Marketing at GKN Powder Metallurgy. Before that, he served as Director of Business Development & Marketing for Electric Motors/SMC at GKN Sinter Metals from 2011 to 2013 and as Senior Engineering Manager at GKN Sinter Metals from 2007 to 2010. Alfons holds a Diploma of Engineering in Mechanical & Process Engineering from HTWG Konstanz and a Diploma in Business & Management from the Academy Kolping. Alfons Geueke
