Dynetek Participates in Waste Hydrogen Project

Dynetek Industries Ltd. will participate in the Integrated Waste Hydrogen Utilization Project (IWHUP), funded by Canada and Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) in Vancouver, BC.

Working together, project members will develop hydrogen energy solutions that will make use of purified waste hydrogen from a sodium chlorate manufacturing plant. This project will cover the full hydrogen value chain, including capture, storage, delivery, and mobile and stationary applications. The Hydrogen Early Adopters (h2EA) program and the SDTC contributions are part of an $18.3 million hydrogen — and hydrogen-compatible — technologies demonstration project. “Government participation in this early commercial project is vital to demonstrating to the public that hydrogen is an alternate fuel for Canada’s future,” said Robb Thompson, Dynetek’s President and CEO. “This project allows Dynetek to demonstrate that our hydrogen storage technologies are ready to provide refueling infrastructure and onboard vehicle storage solutions that can contribute to a cleaner environment today.” The Technology Partnerships Canada h2EA program is intended to accelerate the market adoption of hydrogen and hydrogen-compatible technologies in Canada through funding of demonstration projects, which showcase working technology models in real-world settings. The demonstration project will operate eight light-duty trucks that will run on hydrogen using Dynetek’s Dynecell cylinders and Advanced Lightweight Fuel Storage Systems. Dynetek will provide a 450bar (6,500 psi) inter-modal compressed hydrogen storage and transportation system, similar to the many hydrogen tube trailers currently in service throughout North America. The goal of this demonstration project is to promote awareness and acceptance of the immense potential of a hydrogen economy, combined with other alternative fuels for industry and for Canadians. This three-year project was awarded funding by Sustainable Development Technologies Canada, a not-for-profit foundation that finances and supports the development and demonstration of clean technologies across Canada. In addition, the project received an investment from Natural Resources Canada’s Canadian Transportation Fuel Cell Alliance (CTFCA).
