We are about to enter a new industrial age. The age of blended gaseous fuels! Blended fuels generate when mixing hydrogen with natural gas in the existing grid. Above everything, blending is an urgent trend seeking to speed up the current decarbonization plans to stop climate change. To bring context to today’s status, we have gone on a detailed research and compiled relevant information from different external sources that comes in handy to prepare for the blending future now.Continue reading
What is the significance of the VDMA network “Power-to-X for Applications” for mechanical & plant engineering?
This year marks the 130th anniversary of the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA). A one-of-a-kind group uniting the mechanical engineering industry. In celebration, we talked to a dear colleague and member of the VDMA network “Power-to-X for Applications”, Björn Bofinger.
Get ready to be surprised by the enthralling insights he shared. If you don’t know much about the VDMA network “Power-to-X for Applications”, this is your intro! Now, let’s find out how the network supports the mechanical and plant engineering industry in meeting today’s and tomorrow’s challenges when it comes to power-to-X applications.Continue reading
Future importance of Hydrogen & Power-to-X in industrial applications at the EU level
Welcome to today’s interview! It features an insightful conversation I had with Dr. Carola Kantz, deputy managing director and a valuable member of the VDMA “Power-to-X for Applications,” on the future importance of hydrogen and Power-to-X (P2X) in industrial applications at the EU level.
The topic breaks down into four chapters and touches the core areas of interest with explicit description: (1) Hydrogen in the context of Power-to-X; (2) Legislations for climate protection; (3) Building a hydrogen economy; (4) Involvement of the mechanical & plant engineering sector.Continue reading
What are Power-to-X solutions?
This article provides an overview of the various Power-to-X solutions. It explains what is Power-to-X, why it is important for decarbonization and how it can be used for efficient utilization of variable energy sources. The various energy carriers that can be used to store renewable energy for later use, or for easier transportation, are summarized. The benefits and challenges of Power-to-X are discussed and examples of various solutions being implemented around the globe are presented.Continue reading
Hydrogen valves and typical application challenges
Modern hydrogen applications demand durable valves. Beside the challenges with the media hydrogen they also often have to operate reliably under high pressure or at extremely low temperatures. There are some challenges that the industries have to face. In this blog article, we describe relevant key data on hydrogen, hydrogen applications and hydrogen valves.Continue reading
