Pathways for hydrogen adaptation to industrial processes

December 1st, 2021

R&D Focus Areas:
Gas networks and appliances, Industrial heat processes, Industrial feedstock processes

Lead Organisation:
University of Adelaide

Start date:
May 2020

Project summary description:
This project de-risks the adaptation of hydrogen to some Type-B appliances which are key to industrial processes, in particular cement and alumina production, through a combined experimental and computational research program at scale. It quantifies the impact of hydrogen blending on the characteristics of the resulting flames including size, stability, heat transfer and emission. The results inform gas suppliers and industrial users of the limits, potential impediments and opportunities of hydrogen blending.
