UnLOHCked Project.

The UnLOHCked project, led by the UPV/EHU, joins the Basque Hydrogen Corridor (BH2C).

The aim of UnLOHCked, an approved project under the HORIZON-JTI-CLEANH2-2022-02-05 call, is to develop a CO2 emission-free, efficient and scalable dehydrogenation plant to be used commercially to generate renewable electricity and hydrogen. Within the BH2C, the UnLOHCked project is included in Vertical 2: Transmission, Distribution and Storage.

LOHC (Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers) technology is based on the use of organic compounds that absorb or release hydrogen through chemical reactions. This technology has several advantages: it enables hydrogen to be stored for long periods of time under ambient conditions, transport is simpler, as the same pipelines and ships can be used as are used today, and the hydrogen is also released quickly and efficiently.

The UPV/EHU research group will focus on developing systems to reduce or eliminate the critical raw materials, or CRMs, currently required. Subsequently, the aim is to scale up production and apply the results obtained in a larger reactor. This project also involves two French research centres, CEA and CNRS; the North-West NWU University of South Africa; and the companies Heraeus, Framatome and Hygear.
