Mate­r­i­al Decar­boniza­tion by FLD Technologies

Open­ing new dimen­sions of the hydro­gen cir­cu­lar econ­o­my and decarbonization

FLD Tech­nolo­gies is a pio­neer in prof­itable, viable, region­al­ly imple­mentable, and net­work­able inte­grat­ed hydro­gen solu­tions. We pro­vide solu­tions and prod­ucts for green fuel, pow­er, heat­ing, and cool­ing. FLD Tech­nolo­gies’ patent­ed tech­nol­o­gy adds new dimen­sions to the cir­cu­lar econ­o­my. Nat­u­ral­ly avail­able raw mate­ri­als become ener­gy with­out envi­ron­men­tal­ly harm­ful CO2 emis­sions. In addi­tion, we remove green­house gas­es from the atmos­phere, clean the air, and return car­bon to the earth as nat­ur­al, sol­id mate­r­i­al. We enable ecosys­tems that have the poten­tial to cre­ate a neg­a­tive CO2 footprint. 

HyRe­gio® : Orches­trat­ed plat­form with net­work­able region­al hubs for self-suf­fi­cient hydro­gen pro­duc­tion from biogas.

The val­ue of HyRe­gio®: air purifi­ca­tion and returns from the CO2 avoid­ance price

Accord­ing to the cur­rent state of the art, bio­gas plants are used exclu­sive­ly to gen­er­ate electricity.

The orches­trat­ed plat­form HyRe­gio® from FLD Tech­nolo­gies adds a new dimen­sion to the pre­vi­ous, con­ven­tion­al meth­ods. Com­pact, region­al­ly deploy­able, and high­ly effi­cient mod­ules allow the pro­duc­tion of hydro­gen, heat, and electricity/​cooling from bio­gas, or bio feed­stock. The advan­tage for pro­duc­ers, investors, and con­sumers is that the mod­ules turn regions into self-suf­fi­cient ener­gy suppliers.

Our plants clean the atmos­phere of CO2 pre­vi­ous­ly emit­ted by indus­try. The raw mate­ri­als processed in the bio­gas plant have so far removed CO2 from the atmos­phere. We use this mate­r­i­al — unlike in the past — not to burn it to pro­duce new CO2. Instead, the bio­gas is con­vert­ed into hydro­gen, elec­tric­i­ty, heat and cool­ing in the methane split­ter by plas­ma pyrol­y­sis. The remain­ing car­bon from bio feed­stock is geo­log­i­cal­ly stored as a harm­less sol­id. In our process, no gas is inject­ed into the earth, but is removed from the atmos­phere as bio­car­bon. We call our process mGHGm® because we sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce GHG (“Min­i­miz­ing Green House Gas Mea­sur­ably”). With this method we mate­ri­al­ize the so far unused eco­log­i­cal poten­tials of con­ven­tion­al CCS.

HyRe­gio® hubs as data provider and crys­tal­liza­tion seed of an inno­v­a­tive hydro­gen ecosys­tem with strong growth prospects

The afford­able and prof­itable HyRe­gio® hubs can net­work with each oth­er and beyond on a cloud-based tech­nol­o­gy plat­form. The data obtained serves as a deci­sion-mak­ing basis, for exam­ple, for ener­gy pro­duc­ers, util­i­ties, the auto­mo­tive and oth­er indus­tries, trans­porta­tion com­pa­nies and asso­ci­a­tions, providers of smart mobil­i­ty solu­tions, munic­i­pal­i­ties, pol­i­tics, ini­tia­tives, etc.

HyRegio®-Hub: The advantages

More effi­cient bio­gas processing

The clas­sic sep­a­ra­tion process­es for obtain­ing bio-methane are invest­ment- and ener­gy-inten­sive. Resid­ual gas must be sub­ject­ed to cost­ly aftertreat­ment. The FLDT process is pres­sure­less. It no longer requires com­pres­sion of the gas for sep­a­ra­tion. It yields methane gas with a con­cen­tra­tion of over 99 vol.%. Learn more …

Ener­gy-sav­ing bio-methane splitting

The FLDT process of plas­ma pyrol­y­sis for methane crack­ing requires only a quar­ter of the elec­tri­cal ener­gy that would be need­ed to pro­duce the same amount of H2 in elec­trol­y­sis. Deion­ized water is no longer required. In this way, the process pro­ceeds entire­ly with­out green­house gas emis­sions. Learn more …

Air decar­boniza­tion with mGHGm®

In con­trast to con­ven­tion­al CCS process­es, with our mGHGm® method we store sol­id bio­car­bon geo­log­i­cal­ly and per­ma­nent­ly in the ground. No gas is inject­ed into cav­i­ties under pres­sure. By return­ing car­bon to the earth in a ben­e­fi­cial way, we achieve a neg­a­tive car­bon foot­print.. Learn more …

Com­bined heat and pow­er plant (CHP)

Com­bined heat and pow­er plants (CHP) con­vert chem­i­cal ener­gy of bio­gas into green elec­tric­i­ty and heat. Methane releas­es are avoid­ed, which are 23 times more harm­ful than CO2 emis­sions. The HyRe­gio® hub gives CHPs a new role: by oper­at­ing bio­gas plants eco­nom­i­cal­ly and with reduced emis­sions.. Learn more …

Hub- and cloud-based data mining

The decen­tral­ized and net­worked HyRe­gio® hubs from FLD Tech­nolo­gies acquire valu­able data on con­sump­tion, demand, and peak times. These are stored in a cloud for eval­u­a­tion and exchange between hubs. Data not pre­vi­ous­ly col­lect­ed pro­vides a basis for fur­ther opti­miza­tion. Learn more …

Hydro­gen dis­tri­b­u­tion system

HyRe­gio® pro­vides for the demand-ori­ent­ed sup­ply of com­mu­ni­ties with elec­tric­i­ty, heating/​cooling and hydro­gen. To meet these require­ments in a flex­i­ble, sta­ble and prof­itable way, the H2 pro­duc­tion is extend­ed by a local dis­tri­b­u­tion sys­tem. Pre­vi­ous­ly unrecord­ed infor­ma­tion pro­vides an impor­tant, unique basis. Learn more …

FLDT prod­ucts

Green hydro­gen

In the future, hydro­gen will be the main ener­gy car­ri­er along­side elec­tric­i­ty. It does not occur in pure form in nature and must be pro­duced tech­ni­cal­ly. It is a non-tox­ic, col­or­less and odor­less gas.. Learn more …

Heat­ing and cooling

In the HyRe­gio® process, a basic dis­tinc­tion can be made between two modes of oper­a­tion, which can be used alter­na­tive­ly: eco­log­i­cal elec­tric­i­ty pro­duc­tion and sus­tain­able hydro­gen pro­duc­tion. Learn more …

Green elec­tric­i­ty

With HyRe­gio®, elec­tric­i­ty is only one of the pos­si­ble prod­ucts. The deci­sion on the mode of oper­a­tion — elec­tric­i­ty or hydro­gen — lies with the pro­duc­er. This cre­ates the oppor­tu­ni­ty to eco­nom­i­cal­ly opti­mize the plant as a whole. Learn more

Green CO2

The CO2 pro­duced in bio­gas upgrad­ing can be called “green CO2” or bio-CO2. It can be used as a prod­uct for e.g. green­hous­es or as a raw mate­r­i­al in the chem­i­cal indus­try. Learn more …

Cer­tifi­cate of Origin

The split­ting of bio­gas into hydro­gen and pure car­bon with its immo­bi­liza­tion caus­es the min­i­miza­tion of green­house gas­es. The proof by cer­tifi­cates is a val­ue-adding prod­uct. Learn more …

Not col­lect­ed data

HyRe­gio® offers a dis­tri­b­u­tion plat­form for region­al hubs. There, dis­tri­b­u­tion chan­nels can be mar­ket­ed cen­tral­ly. Data min­ing offers many appli­ca­tion pos­si­bil­i­ties. Learn more …

Invest­ment opportunities

1. Sig­nif­i­cant addi­tion­al rev­enue from CO2 emis­sion trad­ing through appli­ca­tion of the mGHGm® process

The extrac­tion of CO2 from the air by means of mGHGm® rep­re­sents an exclu­sive oppor­tu­ni­ty to use bio­gas plants for val­ue cre­ation – far more effec­tive­ly than before.

2. Scal­ing effects through mod­u­lar design of the plants

Sig­nif­i­cant scal­ing effects are easy to achieve because the plants are mod­u­lar. This opti­mizes invest­ment costs. The mod­ules can be dupli­cat­ed in accor­dance with the “Econ­o­my of Series”.

3. Con­sid­er­able mar­ket poten­tial due to new eco­nom­ic per­spec­tives for bio­gas plants

The num­ber of bio­gas plants in Ger­many is around 10,000, and the mar­ket is expect­ed to grow fur­ther through greater inclu­sion of anaer­o­bic post-diges­tion of biowaste and purifi­ca­tion of wastewater.

4. Flex­i­bil­i­ty in the prod­uct portfolio

The process offers the pos­si­bil­i­ty of switch­ing between “green elec­tric­i­ty” and “green hydro­gen” in a val­ue-opti­miz­ing man­ner. With “green H2”, oth­er co-prod­ucts such as bio-CO2 or bio-car­bon are also avail­able. Both oper­at­ing modes have in com­mon that a sub­stan­tial heat sup­ply is available.

The dis­tri­b­u­tion sys­tem of HyRe­gio® facil­i­tates the access to “green” hydro­gen, which con­tributes to increased accep­tance of the prod­uct, e.g. H2 mobility.

5. Dig­i­ti­za­tion of the region­al ener­gy supply

Cou­pling sin­gle HyRe­gio® hubs to dig­i­tal plat­form offers the oppor­tu­ni­ty not only to devel­op the hubs into an eco­nom­ic “ecosys­tem”, but also to active­ly sup­port the co-oper­a­tion of munic­i­pal­i­ties in ener­gy supply.

6. Syn­er­gy effects through prac­ti­cal sec­tor cou­pling “on site”

The prod­uct diver­si­ty of HyRe­gio® enables sec­tor cou­pling at the munic­i­pal lev­el. Flex­i­ble adap­ta­tion to local con­di­tions cou­pled with cur­rent data leads to eco­nom­i­cal­ly attrac­tive results.
