The objective of this study is to generate insights into the application of the reliability of a W2H system and its impact on the techno-economic performance. This involves examining the case of a single system to analyse on a micro-level the underlying conditions affecting performance, as well as exploring W2H farms to observe performance and...

As part of the Dutch government’s ambitions to realise significant offshore wind energy capacity (70 gigawatts (GW) by 2050), the Port of Rotterdam is to become a hydrogen hub for North-Western Europe. To achieve this, it is expected that around 20 megatonnes (Mt) of hydrogen could be throughput in the Port of Rotterdam, out of which 2 Mt will...

Low-carbon hydrogen is expected to have a large role in future energy systems. Recent research shows the short-term financial feasibility of blue hydrogen is often higher than green hydrogen. Ammonia production is particularly carbon-intensive due to its hydrogen production routes. This research focuses on the physics-based modelling of blue...

The carbon emissions from human activities are causing significant harm to the planet, leading to increased temperatures, melting of polar ice caps, rising sea levels, and other negative impacts on the environment. One promising solution is the use of green hydrogen as a fuel source, which could have a much lower carbon footprint than...

Green hydrogen has a pivotal place in the energy transition, addressing carbon emissions in hard-to-abate sectors. As global hydrogen demand rises, decarbonizing green production becomes vital. This study explores the influence of design choices and local weather patterns on the Carbon Footprint (CF) and Levelised Cost of Hydrogen (LCOH) for...

The global energy sector is a substantial contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, responsible for approximately 75% of such emissions worldwide. Indonesia, ranking twelfth in energy consumption and ninth in global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fuel combustion, is faced with the challenge of addressing its significant carbon footprint....

The global temperature rise has pushed governments more into finding ways to reduce CO2 emissions, by increasing the use of renewable fuels. Lignocellulosic biomass (wood, forest residues, agricultural residues) is a renewable fuel that has still not been utilized to its full potential. That is because it lacks properties such as homogeneity,...

In the effort against climate change the company ZEF has as its target to make methanol (CH3OH) out of atmospheric CO2; a process which can be seen as power-to-fuel and/or power-to-x. In light of the developmental cycle within ZEF a new reactor with an increased size and enhanced mass manufacturability is required. The...

The unprecedented rise in CO2 concentration in the atmosphere, and the accompanying rise in global temperature, has created the need for the development of environmentally friendly sources of energy. A very promising line of research focuses in the development of Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) technologies; through which carbon-neutral...

Due to climate change, the growth in renewable energy is still accelerating and reaching new records each year. Not everything can be electrified, hence, the production of green hydrogen as an energy vector is gaining momentum. However, lowest cost hydrogen will not always be produced at the demand centres, necessitating transport of hydrogen...

Climate change due to the extensive use of fossil fuels has led to the deployment of alternative green ones, such as hydrogen. Green hydrogen is produced by renewable electricity and is CO<sub>2</sub>-free. This thesis focuses on the production of hydrogen by implementing alkaline water electrolysis as the core technology.  <br/>Due to the...

Energy demand for heating and cooling makes up 73\% of total energy use of buildings [2]. This figure is expected to increase over the coming decades, as demand for cooling energy may rise in the Netherlands due to climate change. The heating and cooling of buildings are at relatively low temperature compared to the industry and thus allowing...

Thermal hydrolysis (TH) has been widely applied to sewage sludge treatment to improve downstream anaerobic digestion (AD) by enhancing organic solids hydrolysis and subsequent biogas productivity. However, TH also has several drawbacks, including the formation of recalcitrant compounds, which are anaerobically non-biodegradable and even...

Following the Paris Agreement of 2015, Indonesia aims to reduce emissions by 29% by 2030, compared to the business as usual scenario. In Indonesia it is expected that between 2015 and 2030 the electricity demand could triple and the total energy demand could increase by 80%. Bioenergy would account for more than half of all renewable energy in...

Shipping is, and will continue to be, the most important transportation method around the globe. A vital part of the logistic chain, it is also one of the main contributors to the worldwide CO2 emissions. Current propulsion technologies all rely on the same classic diesel driven technology, as diesel is widely available and has a high energy...

Nitrogen emissions contribute significantly to climate change, especially in the Netherlands around Natura-2000 areas, and one of the main contributors is manure. However, not only does manure usually have high nitrogen emissions, a lot of it is in the form of ammonia, which in itself is very energy-intensive to create. Therefore MEZT developed...

Ammonia (NH3) may reduce CO2 emissions from the marine industry as it is carbon-free and more energy-dense than hydrogen or batteries. Pure ammonia exhibits poor combustion characteristics, so several researchers have already operated small-scale internal combustion engines (ICEs) with ammonia-hydrogen blends. However, nitrogen oxides NOx and...

As the world population is increasing and cities grow faster than before, food scarcity becomes a bigger issue. To depend less on import and decrease CO2 footprint, food should be produced nearby its consumers. A good solution for food production is a greenhouse which provides a steady high yield throughout the year. Some of the world's fastest...

Rising carbon dioxide concentrations in the air increase the global temperature since the industrial revolution. Today, there exists a great need to limit global warming, and an energy transition is vital to do so. With the upcoming changes in our energy system, bioenergy is widely discussed, resulting in a heated debate on including or...
