CEP: August 2019 This issue of CEP highlights the H2@Scale initiative, including critical analyses performed by the DOE’s national laboratories to assess the impact of the growth of hydrogen on our economy and the safety aspects required to sustain a large-scale hydrogen distribution and utilization network in the U.S. It also reviews and discusses the value proposition and technology advancement of H2@Scale happening globally around ammonia produced from renewable hydrogen. Other topics in this issue include distillation technology: what's next? and dynamic simulation. Editorial Let's Talk Separations Our editorial calendar told me that this issue’s Back to Basics article would cover distillation, but I didn’t know specifically what Liz Pavone, who handles that department, had planned until I got her edited article: “Distillation Technology: What’s Next?” by José Bravo of Fractionation Research, Inc...

Research and Development to Enable Hydrogen at Scale August2019Special SectionSunita SatyapalThe Dept. of Energy’s H2@Scale initiative promotes the development, growth, and implementation of technologies based on hydrogen’s versatility. Hydrogen’s Expanding Role in the Energy System August2019Special SectionMark Ruth, Bryan Pivovar, Josh EichmanRealizing the vision of H2@Scale will require research and investment in efficient hydrogen production methods and upgraded infrastructure. Advances in hydrogen production will allow new applications, such as steelmaking, biofuels production, and fuel cell electric vehicles, to thrive. Large-Scale Hydrogen System Safety Issues August2019Special SectionChris LaFleur, P.E.As hydrogen’s applications grow and develop across many sectors, industrial systems must identify the necessary precautions to be able to safely handle the material. Renewable Hydrogen for Sustainable Ammonia Production August2019Special SectionTrevor BrownMore than half of all produced hydrogen is consumed in ammonia plants. Ammonia’s potential as a carbon-free fuel, hydrogen carrier, and energy store represents an opportunity for renewable hydrogen technologies to be deployed at an even greater scale.

Distillation Technology: What’s Next? August2019Back To BasicsJosé L. BravoDistillation is often described as a mature technology that is well understood and established, no longer requiring funding or attention from research and development. This thinking is flawed, as distillation has come a long way in the past three decades and has even more room to grow. Leverage Dynamic Process Simulation August2019Computational MethodsJohn E. Edwards, Daniel Hill, David HillDynamic simulations are able to replicate actual plant behavior, making them valuable for plant design, operation, optimization, and training.
