Hydrogen can play a significant role in decarbonizing the world’s energy supply and is receiving increasing focus as the energy transition moves at pace. Both governments and private companies are investing significantly in this technology. Hydrogen can be applied in many sectors: mobility, transport built environment and industry. A specific area for application is the high temperature energy-intensive industry (glass, food, steel, ceramic). As electrification is often not an option here, a fast and sustainable route to reduce the carbon intensity for industry segment is to substitute natural gas by hydrogen.
Early 2020 DNV GL and Celsian launched an international industry consortium to develop the burner and associated control technologies required for a gradual transition from natural gas to hydrogen as a fuel in energy-intensive industrial production processes. The consortium comprises more than 30 private and public partners throughout the hydrogen value chain.
In his presentation Johan Knijp will give an update of the project in the context of the decarbonized hydrogen future.
Johan Knijp has over 25 years of experience within the power, renewables and gas industry. He worked on a broad range of topics for gas and electricity transmission system operators, energy intensive industry, technology developers, investors, regulatory authorities and governmental bodies. Currently Johan is heading DNV GL’s Oil & Gas activities in the Netherlands with a focus on energy transition and how industry and governments can fully realize the potential of the hydrogen economy.
