Details:

This Brazilian green H2 project aims to support decarbonizing the Amazon where the use of dirty diesel predominates.Here’s what it’s all about:

The Federal University of Santa Catarina started a cooperation project with The German Agency for International Cooperation, to emphasize the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration and investment in clean technologies.

The project aims to prove the concept of a green H2 production plant powered by PV energy and its use in the production of electricity by a fuel cell that can be replicated and expanded in a general way in any region. More specifically, in the Amazon region where the use of diesel predominates in its remote villages.

Located in the city of Florianópolis and supplied by rainwater plus a local 184kWp PV system, the UFSC’s Solar Energy and Green Hydrogen Laboratory uses nine of our single-core AEM Electrolysers to produce onsite green hydrogen. Thanks to Enapter’s dryers, the H2 reaches 99.999% purity and can then be stored at 200bar pressure for later use.

In addition to its use as an energy storage system, the UFSC is researching the utilization of green hydrogen as a substitute for natural gas and the production of H2 derivatives such as green ammonia.
