Online Clean Hydrogen Conference


There are various technologies to create Hydrogen CO₂ neutral, we can’t rely on just electrolysis! This is a statement by Arnold Stokking, opening speaker at the Clean Hydrogen Conference. His presentation will cover the options and why it is important to look beyond electrolysis as the only solution for creating Hydrogen CO₂ neutrally. The Clean Hydrogen Conference is part of the Brightlands Chemistry of the Future Series, which is being organised by Jakajima in close collaboration with strategic partner Brightlands Chemelot Campus. 

Program 18 May 2021 | 14:00 – 18:00 hrs

The program of the Clean Hydrogen Conference offers (inter)national speakers to present their view and experience on this fast developing market. Here are some highlights of the program. For the complete program of the conference, click here.

  • Brightsite ‘s approach to the feedstock transition | Arnold Stokking, Brightsite
    For integrated chemical site’s as Chemelot, the feedstock transition towards CO₂ neutral operations is the dominating topic in view of the Energy transition. Hydrogen is at Chemelot foremost a feedstock. Brightsite is offering an open innovation platform for a fact and science based transition path.
  • Hydrogen variable cost analysis for multi-product processes | Joris van Willigenburg, Sitech Services
    Some hydrogen production technologies produce by-products, such as ethylene. This raises issues on the subject for how to value the resource-savings resulting from these byproducts and how to calculate the variable production costs from these technologies. Within the Brightsite consortium we have developed a novel and more accurate methodology than commonly used in for example LCA-studies.
  • Role of clean hydrogen in a sustainable circular chemical site | René Slaghek, Brightsite / Sitech Services
    Showcase of how new technologies for the production of clean hydrogen can play an essential role in the transformation of an integrated chemical cluster towards a sustainable circular site.
  • Hydrogen, electrification and circularity – a plasma chemistry perspective | Prof. Dr. Ir. Gerard van Rooij, Maastricht University
    In this contribution it will be highlighted how plasma chemistry can potentially combine compatibility with e.g. intermittency and localized production to activate these molecules with maximum energy efficiency. It will be shown how high power density creates fast dynamics, process intensification, and new opportunities towards selectivity.
  • Hydrogen, electrification and circularity – a plasma chemistry perspective Part 2 | Hans Linden, Brightsite / TNO
    By making use of plasma technology, we can utilize methane in an effective way by converting it into hydrogen and high-quality hydrocarbons, such as acetylene and ethene, which forms the basis of plastics, without releasing any CO₂. Brightsite is establishing a new plasma lab with the aim of optimizing existing plasma technology, developing new plasma processes and taking an important step towards the ultimate circular chemistry.
