the msg advantages
The MSG Advantages
  • Significantly Lower Hydrogen Supply Costs
    • … no oxygen plant & no compression
  • Maximum Feedstock Flexibility
    • … coke, asphaltenes, methane, glycerol, algae, etc.
  • Lower GHG Emissions
    • … ~ 20% less than Steam Methane Reforming
  • High Pressure Hydrogen Production
    • … ~ 2000 PSIG: ideal for industrial uses & transportation fuelling
  • “Low Cost” Sequestration of CO2
  • … ~ 2000 PSIG: capital avoidance for capture & compression
