Natural Gas to Hydrogen

The SYPOX Reactor:

For e-SMR at any scale.

Get to know the only technology on the planet able to electrify existing industrial hydrogen production and save 1% of global CO2 emissions.

The Price of Hydrogen

Steam-methane reforming is one of the world‘s most polluting processes. In order to reach the required 900°C operating temperature, furnaces burn 200 billion Nm3 of natural gas per year, producing around 1% of global CO2 emissions. The demand for cheap low carbon hydrogen will triple until 2030 and increase 10-fold until 2050. An immediate solution is required to ensure the cost-effective production of hydrogen without burdening the climate.

SMR without Combustion

SYPOX Reactors are the most powerful e-SMR hardware on the market. A single SY-6 unit produces 10 tons of hydrogen per day at 95% energy efficiency. By integrating the required number of modules, we enable plant operators to abolish combustion and cut total emissions by 40% immediately, without modifications up- or downstream. Our technology enables the chemical industry globally to make a rapid, crucial transition, and satisfy the rising demand for hydrogen.
