HYDROGEN HOPE OR HYPE?

 



I wrote this email this morning to Jigar Shah who heads DOE $40 billion loan program and Michael Regan who heads the US EPA.


Jigar and Mr. Regan


I call Jigar by his first name as I know him, I hope to call Mr. Regan, Michael soon.

You do know I wrote Hydrogen Hope or Hype? back in 2003.   Thermodynamics has not changed in 18 years.

I also helped the WRI under Jonathan Lash think through Hydrogen when Bush 43 and Sam the Sham Bodman were hyping it.  I represented Shinko Pantec of Kobe Japan as far back as 1995 for their PEM electrolyzers at the US National Hydrogen Association.  Their former Managing Director, now retired Dr Hogetsu translated my book into Japanese.

I do believe there is some hope for hydrogen and am probably still one of the ten folks on the planet who know a bunch about hydrogen.  Bloom Energy is not part of that HOPE.  As Jigar once emailed me "they know how to get free money".  We do not need any BLOOMDOGGLES.

Mr. Lavin of New York and I funded research at Iowa State University on producing bio-ethane and bio-hydrogen from waste bio-oil in biomass pyrolysis.  We showed 84% efficiency in conversion of electrical energy into chemical energy using simple electrodes without noble or expensive metals.  Research and development on this should be now funded by DOE for scale up.  Note Khosla's KIOR went bankrupt because of the organic acids and aldehydes in bio-oil.  We make good use of these oil killer chemicals.

The news out of Israel is also promising in electrolysis.


For Blue Hydrogen produced with carbon capture, I am leading some of the most promising technology developments out there.

I suggest that the DOE/EPA convene a public WEBEX or Zoom that I am willing to participate in to showcase the real status and the real promise of zero or very low carbon footprint hydrogen.  You should also note that I led and paid a bunch of money for a spectacular failure in the pyrolysis of methane to make solid carbon and hydrogen.

We built a pilot plant based on published research from Lawrence Livermore Labs.  We proved after a lot of time and effort that the authors from LLNL were simply faking their results of yields and product quality.  Yes even prestigious national labs are aboard the hydrogen gravy train.  We don't need these Solyndras of Science to be repeated.

I look forward to assisting our nation and my country to follow the laws of thermodynamics and make meaningful reductions in carbon emissions..  I expect replies from both DOE and EPA that my voice and the voices of other Thermodynamicists will be heard and that GREEN NEW DEAL will NOT BE A REHASH OF THE GANGRENE OLD DEAL
