Producing hydrogen from nuclear energy costs $6-8 vs market price $1.50-2
Lihachev
The cost of producing hydrogen using energy from a Rosatom nuclear power station is $6-8 per tonne – considerable higher than the market price, Rosatom Chairman Alexey Likhachev told an Energy 2.0 session at the Gaidar Forum, moderated by the President of the Global Energy Association Sergey Brilev.

“The price is within a range of $6-8 per tonne, while the market price is $1.50-2,” Likhachev said.

    Likachev at the same time described as strange the very notion of producing hydrogen on the basis of nuclear power.    “We are talking here about ‘yellow’ or ‘pink’ hydrogen produced with a method of electrolysis using nuclear power,” he said. “This, by its very definition, is strange – taking clean energy in order to produce another form of clean energy.”

1650 hydrogen molecules per hour

The Novosibirsk scientists have proposed a new efficient method for synthesis of a highly active photocatalyst for hydrogen production under the action of sunlight. The materials developed are porous “sponges” made of graphite-like carbon nitride with platinum nanoparticles. The system showed one of the highest values of photocatalytic activity, among all known analogues, with a low content of noble metals, the Russian Science Foundation says.

Metal-organic frameworks for CO2 capture

British renewable energy company Drax along with Promethean Particles, a metal-organic framework manufacturer and the University of Nottingham is going to test an innovative CO2 capture unit at the bioenergy power plant in North Yorkshire. If the tests are a success, Drax will launch construction of a full-fledged commercial analogue in 2024, its first stage will be put into operation in 2027, and the second one – in 2030.
