RECYCLE Project (REthinking low Carbon hYdrogen production by Chemical Looping rEforming)

James Chadwick Building
Producing hydrogen using different feedstocks with Chemical Looping Reforming technology
Location: UK
Operator: The University of Manchester
Duration: 2023 – ongoing
Scope: Techno-economic study assessment

The RECYCLE project (REthinking low Carbon hYdrogen production by Chemical Looping rEforming), a £ 5.1 million multi-organisation collaboration funded by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, will construct and test a fully integrated innovative hydrogen production unit at The University of Manchester.

The technology is based on chemical looping reforming using fixed bed reactors which allow modular units and cost-effective solutions for hydrogen production using different feedstocks, with inherent carbon dioxide capture and separation at high purity.

The RECYCLE process provides a flexible method for hydrogen and or syngas production, while also showing economic potential benefits over other blue hydrogen production pathways.

RECYCLE technology could supply hydrogen to several sectors in the UK, focusing on smaller scale industrial sites, with its ability to tap into large demand sectors that require syngas to develop other low-carbon products.

We will bring our engineering expertise and commercial know-how, to complete a techno-economic study assessment of the RECYCLE technology in the capacity of producing hydrogen.
