what we ll be talking about
What we’ll be talking about…
  • Design Task
  • Background
  • Specs
  • Production
  • Transportation
  • Source of Power
  • Storage
  • Best Solution
  • Flow Chart
  • Prototype
  • Cost Analysis
  • Conclusion
  • Questions
our mission
Our Mission
  • Standardized fueling station for a H2 city
  • Supply the transportation network with H2 fuel using renewable resources
where we ll be stationed
Where we’ll be stationed…
  • Boulder City, Nevada–25 miles SE of Las Vegas
  • Located about 6 miles from the Hoover Dam and 5 miles from the Boulder City Landfill
  • Population: 16,840
  • Requires about

9,000kg of H2 a day

to meet transport

needs

in a perfect world
In a perfect world…
  • Safe
  • Sustainable
  • 350 BAR and 700 BAR for passenger and commercial vehicles.
  • HCNG containing up to 30% hydrogen at 250 BAR
  • 2 stations to meet the city needs with 6 pumps at each station
how will we produce it
How will we produce it?
  • Electrolysis
    • Water
      • Large energy cost
    • Urine
      • Urine breaks down
    • Microbial
      • Not developed
  • Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell
      • Breaks Down
  • Steam Biomethane
      • Costly
how to get it to the station
How to get it to the station
  • Trucks
      • Constant Refill
  • Pipes
      • Costly
  • Produced on Site
      • Need of space
  • Produced at House
      • Not realistic
storage distribution
Storage/Distribution
  • Liquid
      • Expensive
  • Gas
      • Storage
  • Produced Right Before Use
      • Cant keep up with demand
source of power
Source of Power
  • Solar
      • Lack of Space
  • Wind
      • Lack of Space
  • Coal
      • Not Renewable
  • Nuclear
      • Expensive
  • Hydroelectric
      • Not Enough Power
  • Methane Waste
      • Abundance of CH4
our best options
Our best options…
  • Production
    • Steam Methane Reforming
  • Transportation
    • Trucks-H2
    • Piping-CH4
  • Storage
    • Liquid
  • Source of Power
    • Methane

the initial cost
The initial Cost…
  • Steam Methane Reformer -> $20,000,000

+

  • Pipelines -> $10,000,000

+

  • Cost of Stations -> $17,324,000
  • Total Cost of System -> $57,324,000
profit per day
Profit Per Day
  • Sell 350 and 700 bar at 4$ a kg ->$30,400 per day
  • Sell HCNG at 5$ a kg -> $37,500 per day
  • Cost to pump -> $40,000 per day
  • 50 employees to run system -> $7,000 per day
  • Nitrogen -> $5,000 per day
  • Methane -> $2,000 per day
  • Total Profit -> $13,900 per day
  • Yearly Profit -> $5,073,500 a year
paving the way for the future
Paving the way for the future
  • The system will be paid off in a little over 11 years
  • This system is replica table around most cities that have landfills in the vicinity
  • We could sell hydrogen for other city needs
