BurnStar Technologies And Turnkey Modular Join Forces. BurnStar Technologies, a trailblazing innovator in the field of clean, low-cost Hydrogen production technology, is pleased to announce its agreement with Turnkey Modular for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of its first commercial Guilt-Free Hydrogen™ catalytic molten metal reforming plant.
Under this agreement, the companies will design and construct a 5 kg per hour Turquoise Hydrogen plant at Ironveld’s Rustenburg smelting site. This cutting-edge facility will showcase the revolutionary process of hydrocarbon gas reforming by introducing natural gas (NG) or Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) into a molten metal catalyst to produce Hydrogen gas for CO2-free Green Steel production.
Having recently secured funding from Savant Venture Fund and Sibanye-Stillwater, BurnStar Technologies will use the Ironveld demonstration as a springboard to entering the market for commercial clean Hydrogen supply, on-site and a very cost-competitiverate. With different business model options to suit individual customers, there is a huge opportunity for BurnStar to roll out its technology solution into the broader Hydrogen market.
BurnStar specialises in the research and development of novel technology concepts and holds patents in specialised gas processing fields. CEO of BurnStar Technologies Dr. Johan Brand said: “This process uses 8 times less energy than electrolysis and only 4 kgof methane is required to produce 1 kg of Hydrogen, making it much more affordable than green Hydrogen.”
Dr Brand further indicated that “The planned delivery of the 5 kg/h Hydrogen plant to Ironveld marks a significant milestone in the development of the technology. We have already started on the development of a 5-ton-per-day unit and will soon be able to incorporate the learnings from commencing this first commercial operation early next year.”
BurnStar Technologies’ mission is to support opportunities in unconventional and hard to-abate GGE sectors. The company specializes in pioneering research and development of zero-CO2 Hydrogen production technology and has international patent applicationsin this specialized gas processing field.
Turnkey Modular relishes the opportunity to be involved in this novel and groundbreaking technology. Turnkey will bring their innovative construction systems and network of industry experts such as EPS so see the scalable commercialisation of the technology.
