Angstrom was invited to Las Vegas, NV to speak about the
Hydrogen Technology (Water electrolysis from renewable energy)
to improve the diversity, economy of large scale renewable
energy storage, at the 2015 Renewable Energy World Conference &
Unstable and intermittent renewable power is a big challenge that can determine the significance of energy storage technology. For large scale renewable power storage, hydrogen storage can be seen as one of the best choices in terms of addressing intermittency, technology, environmental effects, and cost. Besides, hydrogen gas is continuing to become more and more important along with the development of energy and industrial technologies, and will continue into the future.
Synthesis Gas, or Syngas for short, is a fuel gas mixture made up of hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide which is used to make Synthetic Natural Gas or Synthetic Petroleum. Generally, it’s produced by the coal industry as a byproduct of the gasification of coal at very high temperatures. It is also an important industrial resource in the production of ammonia or methanol, and although it has half the energy density of natural gas, it can be used as a fuel for Internal Combination Engines (ICE). Carbon dioxide emissions are an issue for coal industry as The U.S. Environment Protection Agency (EPA) and international community, in general, are highly concerned about carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions. Because of this, the coal industry has to pay more attention to greenhouse gas emissions and regulation, and there may be some relief through the use of wind power.
Recently, Angstrom has finished Final Acceptance Testing of 800 Nm3/h electrolyzer for New Haripur Power Plant in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The system was made fully automatic, and containerized to meet the strict requirements of the power plant client. In this system, Angstrom has adapted the newest safety monitoring technology and remote assistance service, to ensure the best after-sales service quality for the client.
Leading clean energy media "Renewable Energy Focus" recently
published another article from Angstrom, about the Energy
storage solutions to enhance grid economics:
Renewable energy has grown at a dramatic rate in recent years. The US Energy Information Administration has recently reported that renewable energy sources provided 9.81% of US energy consumption and 11.82% of domestic energy production for the first half of 2013, which is about 60% higher than 10 years ago.
However, along with the growth of renewable energy, the controversy never stops. The major concern lies in the real economic value after the renewable energy is integrated into the grid. Since most renewable energy facilities – especially wind and solar – are located in less populated area and far away from the grid, it is expensive to transmit the power to end-users.
This past week Massachusetts Governor and the Governors of seven
other states signed an MOU focused on Zero Emission Vehicles.
It agrees to the creation of a multistate ZEV Program Implementation Task Force. It contains agreement on a target of 3.3 million ZEV on the road in the eight states by 2025 with annual reporting on the number of vehicles and electric/hydrogen stations open to the public. Each state will establish their own ZEV targets. There is reference to fleet purchases and station being made available to the public.
Section 9 specifically addresses the development of strategies and infrastructure requirements for commercialization of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
Angstrom, a leading developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation and Renewable Energy related products, announced today that US National Renewable Energy Laboratory has successfully completed testing of VERDE-160S, the first hydrogen electrolyzer for renewable energy in the world, invented & developed by Angstrom Advanced.
Leading clean energy website "www.energydigital.com" has
published another article from Angstrom Advanced, regarding the
Hydrogen for Biomass area.
The most recent technology designed for hydrogen generating by methane (main product generated from biomass by SMR technology) reforming with PSA purification system can treat up to 20000 m3 gas per hour and produce extremely pure hydrogen with up to 99.999 percent purity, meeting standards for PEM fuel cell applications. For example, Angstrom in Boston has developed this type of system, and made it customizable for different purposes of use, such as to build a home fuel cell station by utilizing highly pure hydrogen generated from biomass.
Today, energy is either transmitted directly to the consumer through the grid or stored as backup power for future use via batteries, pumping water, etc. When it comes to solar and wind energy, it becomes extraordinarily difficult to take full advantage of the renewable sources using traditional methods of power transmission due to the varied locations of consumers and their pace of consumption. Why solar farms need storageSimply put, “We need storage because the sun doesn’t shine at night,” Dr. David Wogan wrote in the Scientific American.Rapidly advancing technologies like energy storage are required to compensate for the short-term volatility of renewable energy sources.
Deriving power from the wind is nothing new. Reports have
windmills dating back to 200 B.C. What began as small-scale
attempts to harness energy, have developed into multi-megawatt
producing machines today. As technologies have advanced,
approaches to generating power from the wind are more efficient
than ever before. We’re collecting clean, renewable energy from
wind comprehensively in larger and larger scales. But what does
that mean for those smaller wind energy systems…or should we
simply relegate them to the past?
Larger turbines might have replaced smaller ones in many cases, however, not everywhere. The global market for small and medium wind turbines (SMWT) is actually forecast to double by 2015, especially in developing markets, reaching US$634 million.
Angstrom was invited to Minneapolis, MN to speak about the
future of using Hydrogen (Steam Reforming and PSA technology) to
improve Biomass development and economy, at the 2013
International Biomass Conference and Expo.
"Today we focus on hydrogen-from-biomass. As a renewable energy source, biomass can either be used directly, or indirectly—once or converted into another type of energy product such as bio-fuel.
By processing biomass through various routes, we can get lots of products such as bio oil, biogas, biodiesel, ethanol… but it’s better to transform them further to hydrogen through reforming reaction while collecting the carbon dioxide meanwhile.
The most important reason we adopt hydrogen as final energy carrier instead of other forms is the inherit properties of hydrogen:1) clean, 2) inexhaustible, 3) high energy density. " More articles will be released about using Hydrogen in Biomass projects. Please pay attention to our press releases.
North America Clean Energy, the leading magazine and internet media in Renewable Energy sector published again an article from us about our innovative collaboration of Hydrogen and Biomass technology. "A new application of hydrogen is being deployed which is helping solve humanity’s ever-evolving energy woes. Traditionally, hydrogen has a large number of applications – used in everything from industrial products to food packaging. Ammonia used in fertilizer and industrial processes amounted to 160 Million tons worldwide in 2011; hydrogen is a primary component in ammonia. The market demand for new, less expensive sources of hydrogen is driven heavily by fertilizer and manufacturing, however, a new market demand is emerging for hydrogen in another sector – energy. Power plants in Germany as well as Canada (using wind and natural gas, respectively) are today supplementing their primary electrical generators with advanced configurations of hydrogen technologies. These retrofits help the plants save money by smoothing supply, converting excess electricity generated into storable hydrogen gas which can be returned to electricity using a turbine generator or a fuel cell.

As the subsidiary of Angstrom Advanced Inc, Angstrom has paid a
lot of attention to what is going on in China, especially the
renewable energy section. The leading magazine "Energy Digital"
recently published an article from Angstrom about this market
"As China's economy rapidly grows, the energy sector faces two major challenges: an imbalance of supply and demand and a lack of distribution and transmission infrastructure.
As by far the largest wind power market in the world (with 63 GW installed capacity), China gets more than 30% of its wind market's revenue from federal subsidies—an exceptional amount of support from the government that has adversely caused a massive oversupply issue. In 2011, abandoned wind power amounted to over 10 billion KWh, exceeding 50 percent of the industry's profit. Much of that energy was wasted, mostly positioned near farms lacking sufficient distribution/transmission infrastructure capable of moving excess energy to areas of higher demand. "
The leading clean energy magazine "Distributed Energy" has recently published an article about the cutting-edge technology VERDE LLC has developed to specially serve the Distributed Renewable Energy market: "Hydrogen is a very valuable alternative to fossil fuel for distributed energy generation, delivering a high-powered solution with minimal environmental and safety concerns. Green businesses, telecomm providers, governments, and renewable energy advocates can now produce on-demand energy for their assets, at minimal cost and using commercially available equipment. This article will look at the benefits associated with hydrogen and fuel cell energy systems compared to fossil fuel and chemical alternatives as well as the inherent costs associated with a fuel cell on-demand generator. This analysis will show that it is not only technically feasible to use hydrogen for on-demand energy in certain, but also that it can be more economic than the alternatives. Diesel generators are valuable when used only for applications that have short run times (less than eight hours per day) and where they are in proximity to a low-cost fuel source. For longer run times, and when used in more remote and extreme conditions, renewable hydrogen generators are an ideal solution for providing on-demand energy..."
The leading Magazine in Biomass field, Gas World, published an article about the Hydrogen Reformer technology of Angstrom Advanced. This is another recognition of Angstrom’s cutting edge technical innovation and its fast expanding fame in the industry: “Here and now gasification plants have the functionality to make the hydrogen economy a real possibility. Greatly reducing the cost of hydrogen production by using renewable resources and advanced, reliable processing techniques enables a gasification plant to produce valuable hydrogen product from waste materials. While the technology is available to enable this functionality, however, most plants opt to simply create SynGas (a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide.) However, as market demand for hydrogen increases in parallel with the stationary and transportation fuel cell industry, gasification facilities will likely be the top producer of renewable hydrogen fuel – mostly due to the low cost of production and the scalability of plants. This paper will discuss minor changes to gasification plants that plant operators can implement which will maximize the value of their assets, and enable them to easily create a product with higher purity and productivity.
