  • Rotoboost’s thermocatalytic decomposition process enables continuous hydrogen production and carbon capture onboard marine vessels, producing turquoise hydrogen and solid carbon as a by-product.
  • The process significantly reduces carbon emissions from hydrogen production, potentially up to 100% depending on the heating method used.
  • The technology offers scalability and cost-effectiveness for ship owners, supporting global decarbonization goals and easing compliance with emission regulations.

Let’s break down the process of Rotoboost’s pre-combustion carbon capture system:

  1. Thermocatalytic Decomposition Process: Rotoboost utilizes a thermocatalytic decomposition process to convert methane (CH4), the primary component of natural gas, into hydrogen (H2) and solid carbon (C). This process involves the application of heat and a catalyst to break down methane molecules into their constituent elements.
  2. Continuous Hydrogen Production: Unlike traditional methods of hydrogen production, which often involve energy-intensive processes and produce carbon dioxide (CO2) as a by-product, Rotoboost’s process allows for continuous hydrogen production without emitting CO2. This continuous production is crucial for applications such as onboard marine vessels where a reliable and consistent source of hydrogen is needed.
  3. Turquoise Hydrogen Production: The hydrogen produced through Rotoboost’s process is referred to as “turquoise hydrogen.” This term signifies that the hydrogen is produced with minimal carbon emissions, as opposed to “grey hydrogen,” which is produced using fossil fuels without carbon capture, or “blue hydrogen,” which is produced from natural gas with carbon capture and storage (CCS). Turquoise hydrogen is a cleaner alternative to grey hydrogen and can significantly reduce overall carbon emissions.
  4. Solid Carbon By-Product: Instead of emitting CO2 into the atmosphere, Rotoboost’s process results in the formation of solid carbon as a by-product. This solid carbon can be captured and stored, effectively removing it from the carbon cycle and preventing it from contributing to climate change. Moreover, the solid carbon can have various applications, such as in the production of fuel cells and batteries, thus contributing to the circular economy.
  5. Modular Scalability: One of the key features of Rotoboost’s carbon capture system is its modular scalability. This means that the system can be expanded or scaled down in a step-by-step manner to accommodate varying emission regulations and requirements. This scalability ensures flexibility and adaptability, allowing ship owners to comply with evolving environmental standards while optimizing costs.
  6. Cost-Effectiveness: Rotoboost’s carbon capture system is designed to be cost-effective for ship owners compared to alternative solutions such as green fuels or conventional carbon capture systems. By utilizing natural gas and capturing solid carbon as a by-product, Rotoboost’s system offers a more sustainable and economically viable approach to hydrogen production and emissions reduction in the maritime industry.
