Gasum and Hycamite Begin Cooperation on Decarbonizing Natural Gas & Biogas

Source: 11/25/2021, Location: Europe

Energy company Gasum and Finnish company Hycamite TCD Technologies are to study the decarbonization of natural gas and biogas. Natural gas and biogas mostly consist of methane and Hycamite’s technology decomposes the methane molecules in gas into its elemental components, clean hydrogen and pure carbon with no emissions. Pure carbon can be used as a raw material in e-vehicle batteries, for example, and hydrogen can be used in clean energy production and as an industrial raw material.

Cooperation between Gasum and Hycamite aims to study the markets and applications for decarbonized natural gas and biogas in the Nordic countries. At the same time, cooperation seeks to assess the lifecycle emissions of the hydrogen produced using Hycamite’s technology and the potential to reduce them. This will use Gasum’s knowledge of natural gas and biogas production and distribution chains as well as verification and calculation of their emissions.

Strong growth in need for low-carbon solutions
Many of Gasum’s industrial customers need hydrogen as a raw material already today but hydrogen production currently generates significant carbon dioxide emissions. In addition, clean hydrogen can be used to replace other energy and thus promote reaching climate goals. Together with Hycamite, Gasum wants to be at the front line of bringing new solutions to the market.

”Gasum aims to provide customers with cleaner energy. Capturing solid carbon from natural gas and biogas makes it possible to further reduce climate impacts from use of gas. This is why we are really excited about this opportunity to explore the suitability of the solutions based on Hycamite’s technology for the needs of Gasum’s existing and potential customers. Gasum wants to support its customers on their path to carbon neutrality and this makes it important to provide solutions to the needs of different customers,” says Mikko Syrjänen, Director, Business Development, Gasum.

Hydrogen and carbon from gas without GHG emissions
Using Hycamite’s technology, Gasum’s gas can be converted, both centrally and decentralized at Gasum’s customers’ sites, into clean hydrogen and carbon without greenhouse gas emissions.

”We’re really pleased to start cooperation with Gasum because we now have a chance to broadly study the suitability of our technology for various purposes in Finland and the other Nordic countries. Our goal is to offer companies the chance to start using sustainably produced hydrogen now,” says Hycamite’s CEO Laura Rahikka.
