ValorH2 – Investigation of new technologies, materials and processes associated with the hydrogen value chain
Call for proposal: Science and Innovation Missions – 2022 Call
Funded by: Centre for the Technological Development and Innovation, CDTI E.P.E., with Next Generation EU Funds
Type of action: R&D Project in cooperation. Missions “Large Companies”
Implementation period: 2022 – 2024
Objective: The overall objective is research into technologies, materials and processes at different stages of the hydrogen value chain: the generation of hydrogen by alkaline electrolysis technology, the compression of this gas at very high pressure and providing a high flow rate, innovative solutions for storage and transport at very high pressure, and the use, on the one hand, in the refuelling of hydrogen in electric vehicles (fuel cells), and on the other hand in a process of methanation of CO2 recovered in the chemical industry (chemical reagent), with the aim of increasing efficiency, reducing the economic cost and minimizing the carbon footprint in all of them. The project will have the support of more than a dozen Public Research Organizations (OPIs) among technological centers and leading universities at the national level, in addition to other specialized technical collaborations.
This project has been granted by CDTI and supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation
