Blending | Hydrogen Ready Equipment | Green H2 | Compression



A unique one-day event with keynote, round table and multiple seminars from leaders in hydrogen.


Confirmed topics include:

  • Hydrogen Fuel-Gas Blending – Engine Performance Benefits on Large-Bore Integral Compressors
    This presentation will cover the performance and resulting exhaust emissions benefits and trade-offs of a range of Hydrogen/Natural Gas blends when used to fuel large-bore slow-speed integral compressors. Both in-house test-cell data as well as results from field testing which identify clear trends to the benefits and trade-offs will be discussed in detail.
  • Challenges associated with high pressure, non-lubricated, hydrogen reciprocating compression
    Existing hydrogen applications for reciprocating compression units are well known, including hydrocracking and other refining applications. The emerging energy market for hydrogen storage, injection, and fuelling applications present new challenges such as smaller footprints, difficulty with non-lubricated sealing at required high pressures, and the need for new test methods and novel test equipment. This presentation will discuss several challenges associated with hydrogen compression and, through case studies, illustrate our approach to solving them.
  • Perspectives on hydrogen blending
    The promise and potential of hydrogen to lead toward a decarbonized energy infrastructure will likely result in significant investment in technologies and an evolution of modern compression equipment. In addition, pipeline and fueling system infrastructure changes are required to meet the production, transportation, storage, and usage needs for a properly functioning hydrogen economy. For the most part, the compression requirements are similar from production to transport, requiring booster units, pipeline transport compressors, storage compression and possibly fueling station pumps or compressors. Both blue (hydrogen reformed from natural gas) and green hydrogen (electrolysis production) will be produced to support decarbonized fuel and gas-fired power in the U.S. in the coming years.  This presentation will provide an overview of these needs, hydrogen compressor challenges and considerations for how these applications may warrant new compressor designs in years to come.
  • Methods and the future of hydrogen compression
    After a brief discussion of how hydrogen is produced and where it is used, Sundyne’s Peter Roth will examine why compression is required to make hydrogen a valuable commodity. This session will discuss the different methods of compression. It will evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of each method, and this session will also discuss the future of hydrogen compression, including technologies such as LH2 pumping, electro-chemical compression and more.
  • Valve performance: A key element for reliability and efficiency of reciprocating compressors
    Equipment reliability is a critical requirement across the hydrogen industry. Likewise, optimum power consumption is essential for companies to maintain its operational cost under control. Reciprocating compressors are a fundamental component of the hydrogen value chain and its valves play a critical role on the performance of this equipment. This presentation will address the key aspects and best practices of valve design, operation, and maintenance for reliable hydrogen reciprocating compressors. A user ‘case study’ implementing these practices is presented to demonstrate the benefits of the recommendations from this presentation.
