The United States’ industrial sector uses heat for a wide variety of applications, including washing, cooking, sterilizing, drying, preheating of boiler feed water, process heating, and much more. Altogether, the industrial sector uses an estimated 24 quadrillion Btu, or roughly one-third of the nation’s delivered energy supply. Process heating applications alone account for approximately 36 percent of total delivered energy consumption within the manufacturing sector, a subset of the industrial sector. The vast size and scale of industrial heating energy use represents a unique potential for renewable resources.
According to a study of industrial heating in European countries, most existing renewable heating technologies could easily and cost-effectively supply heat within the lowest indicated temperature range. Often, a valuable role that renewable heating technologies could play in industrial applications is to provide “preheating” before an existing conventional energy source is used. Major considerations for industrial renewable heating applications include cost, resource intermittency, and process integration and storage options.

Through that, the world is aggressively transitioning to net-zero carbon emissions. The U.S. just pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions by nearly half over the next 10 years. Another 197 countries adopted the Paris Climate Accord to assist too. In addition, about 30 global monetary institutions representing roughly $5 trillion in assets formed the Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance, aligning portfolios with the Paris Agreement. Blackrock, the largest asset manager globally, alongside other global funds grasping a roughly $18 trillion in assets, also seems to have announced capital reallocation towards sustainable and purposeful expenditures. These all could be powerful catalysts for hydrogen power moving forward.
In fact, supported by the global shift of regulators and attitudes towards decarbonization, hydrogen already seems to be receiving unprecedented interest and capital. This is also where sectors focused on advancing the low-carbon energy transition with assets in hydrogen technologies, energy storage, carbon capture and new energy systems could come into play. With its Dynamic Combustion Chamber (DCC) boiler solution, which claims to provide zero emissions while remaining cost-competitive with traditional hydrocarbon boiler systems.
The DCC is an engine that allows for the combustion of gases in a vacuum or under pressure, eliminating the production of air pollutants. Combined with a clean renewable source of electricity, the DCC would serve as a battery to store and discharge electricity when needed. This would fill in the gaps that sources of electricity such as wind and solar have during different time periods, and replace peaker plants or fossil fuel based power plants which supply electricity to the grid when there is a shortage.

These heating industries want to devote resources throughout the Hydrogen value chain focusing primarily on production and end-use markets. Its most current system includes a patented hydrogen-based Heat and Steam Boiler aiming to decarbonize an approximately $30 billion market. In fact, they recently acquired all the assets of Hydrogen Technologies Inc. (HTI). HTI appears to grasp robust intellectual property for a breakthrough high-temperature Dynamic Combustion Chamber boiler that might enable zero-emissions hydrogen to generate heat, hot-water, high-temperature steam, and combined heat and power through a closed-loop process.
This heating system could potentially produce an exothermic reaction between pure hydrogen and pure oxygen, the combustion oxidizer, by creating only local reaction heat and water as hydrogen burns in the ultraviolet range. This fundamental condensing characteristic of the DCC process and natural vacuum formed from steam condensation within the tubes might capture virtually all the reaction heat accounting for potentially more than 97% efficiency. Acts as a natural process barrier to hydrogen and the effects of embrittlement. Requires no smokestack and thus no need for FD or ID fans, lowering parasitic load with a spiraling efficiency and O&M costs. As a part of this world we live in, we want to see a healthier environment around us. This is something we might be enthusiastic about and it is in the best interests of our environment!
