Hydrogen Recovery, Cleaning, Compression, Storage, Dispensing, Distribution System and End-Uses on the University Campus from Combined Heat, Hydrogen and Power System
Veziroglu, T. N.
To address the problem of fossil fuel usage at the Missouri University of Science and Technology campus, using of alternative fuels and renewable energy sources can lower energy consumption and hydrogen use. Biogas, produced by anaerobic digestion of wastewater, organic waste, agricultural waste, industrial waste, and animal by-products is a potential source of renewable energy. In this work, we have discussed the design of combined heat, hydrogen and power (CHHP) system for the campus using local resources. An energy flow and resource availability study is hydrogen recovery, cleaning and energy End-Uses on the university campus from CHHP system. Following the resource assessment study, our team selects Fuel Cell Energy direct fuel cell (DFC) 1500TM unit as a molten carbonate fuel cell. The CHHP system provides the hydrogen for transportation, back-up power and other needs. The research presented in this paper was performed as part of the 2012 Hydrogen Student Design Contest. In conclusion, the CHHP system will be able to reduce fossil fuel usage, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and hydrogen generated is used to power different applications on the university campus.
