Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies will launch its first industrial unit to store up to 1,800 tonnes of hydrogen per year using a liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC). The unit will be located in Dormagen, Germany, and will be the largest deployment of the company's technology yet. In a recent conversation with Lux Research, Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies said it was gearing up for full commercial expansion and currently developing 7,300 tonnes per year hydrogen storage units that would be used for international transport of hydrogen. While its main competitor Chiyoda is ahead in terms of international projects, Hydrogenious' benzyltoluene technology is more efficient and safer than Chiyoda's toluene solution.
