8 Rivers Capital, LLC has Been Awarded $1.8M in Funding to Support their Hydrogen Production Plant

8 Rivers Capital, LLC has been awarded $1,802,863 in funding to support their pre-front-end engineering design study for a new hydrogen production plant equipped with 8RH2 technology. The funding comes from two sources, with the Department of Energy (DOE) providing $1,412,863 of the funding. 

The hydrogen production plant will cost-effectively produce 100 million standard cubic feet per day of 99.97% pure hydrogen and capture 90-99% of carbon dioxide emissions. This study is set to evaluate three design cases implementing varying processes of the 8RH2 equipment and a CO2 separation unit. The captured CO2 (~600,000 tonnes/year) will be transported and stored at Painter Reservoir Gas Complex in Evanston, Wyoming, and the hydrogen product will be converted to ammonia for rail export to California. The project will deliver a detailed engineering package, including a levelized cost of hydrogen for the three design cases.

8 Rivers Capital has committed themselves to building Net Zero 2050, which means they are building the technology to support companies as they strive to meet their net-zero goals. Their 8RH2 process generates clean hydrogen with full carbon capture and at less cost than any other existing hydrogen production technology.

8 Rivers Capital is not the only company to receive funding from the DOE this round. The DOE has awarded a total of $24.9M to 6 projects focused on advancing hydrogen technologies for electricity generation. The remaining 5 projects include:

  • Investigation of Ammonia Combustion for Turbines (IACT) by the Gas Technology Institute
  • Advanced Mixed Mode Combustors for Hydrogen F-Class Retrofit by the General Electric Company
  • Demonstration of a Gas Turbine-Scale RDC Integrated with Compressor and Turbine Components at 7FA Cycle Conditions by the General Electric Company
  • Development of Hydrogen Burner for FT4000 Aeroderivative Engine by Raytheon Technologies Research Center
  • Low-NOx, Operable Ammonia Combustor Development for Zero-Carbon Power (LOAD-Z) by Raytheon Technologies Research Center.

Are you developing new technology for an existing application? Did you know your development work could be eligible for the R&D Tax Credit and you can receive up to 14% back on your expenses? Even if your development isn’t successful your work may still qualify for R&D credits (i.e. you don’t need to have a patent to qualify). To find out more, please contact a Swanson Reed R&D Specialist today or check out our free online eligibility test.
