Leadership in H2 Production

An Energy Future that is:

  • Environmentally sustainable

  • Carbon clean

  • Economically viable

The bio hydrogen opportunity
The Bio-Hydrogen Opportunity

Leadership in H2 Production

  • Part of the ‘Climate Change’ solution

  • Access to the fast growing H2 market

  • Bio-fuels are key - Diversify & enrich the

    agricultural business model

  • Use H2 as a fuel to produce energy

  • Use H2 as an industrial gas to enable energy

    production from bio-mass and fossil fuel based

  • Industrial Gas - Current & Future:

    • Crude oil refine/upgrade/transport – Alta Tar Sands

      • hydro-cracking & hydrogenation

    • Industrial chemicals and fertilizer production

    • Food, science & medical sectors

  • Clean energy source - future electrical, mechanical and heat energy:

    • Internal combustion engines (ICE) – BMW

HTC Purenergy Bio-fuel Technology Overview

Leadership in H2 Production

  • Our technology has the potential to satisfy the energy needs for today’s bio-fuel production facilities.

  • Reforms oxygenated hydrocarbons like glycerolandPDE into hydrogen (H2)

The energy in the H2 from reformed glycerol and PDE is captured by efficiently processing cereal grains (PDE) and oilseeds (glycerol) and converting the H2 to electrical, mechanical and thermal energy.’

Leadership in H2 Production

  • Make the following possible:

  • Commercially available supplies of fuel grade hydrogen (H2) for conversion to lower cost electrical, thermal & mechanical energy

  • Growth of bio-fuels to achieve 10-20% of the world’s energy supplies

  • Reduction in the amount of fossil fuel used to produce biofuels…. a hedge against future energy price increases and supply uncertainty.

HTC Purenergy ValueProposition: Business Optimization and Expansion For Bio-diesel and Ethanol Producers

Leadership in H2 Production

  • The Bio-dieselbusiness opportunity:

    Glycerol (10% waste product) to energy:

  • A third major income stream for bio-diesel producers

  • Supplements ‘bio-diesel’ and ‘meal’

  • Adds profit potential to a bio-diesel production facility

  • The Ethanolbusiness opportunity:

    PDE to hydrogen (H2):

  • A third major income stream for ethanol producers

  • Supplements ‘ethanol’ and ‘DDG’

  • Adds profit potential to an ethanol production facility

Leadership in H2 Production

Public Policy Actions Needed:

  • Value discovery mechanisms for CO2 Management – Cap & Trade, Carbon-credits, …

  • Energy producer access to the North American electrical grid:

  • ‘Today, in Canada, there is a 60+ step regulatory approval process to connect energy production systems to the Grid & another 18 steps to sell electricity.’

Leadership in H2 Production

An observation, a question, a request …… that is evolving into a demand from both consumers and producers of electricity:

‘Let small energy producers plug into the electrical grid as easily as the grid accommodates us as electricity consumers’

Leadership in H2 Production

  • When we get our public policy right….

  • Capital and financing will follow

  • Commercial design, optimization and validation will be enabled


  • Another carbon clear renewable energy source will become ‘mainstream’ …. Vision realized!
