Decarbonisation is an essential journey for us all. Change begins with choices and cost savings right now for better energy use and continues towards net-zero fuels and energy sources, transformed industrial processes and a sustainable fair economy.
The Materials Processing Institute works with clients to demonstrate and scale up next generation decarbonisation technology to help accelerate industrial decarbonisation and progress businesses to a net-zero future.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
Hydrogen technology to support industrial decarbonisation
Key services and processes to support industrial decarbonisation include:
- Energy Efficiency and Heat Recovery
- Decarbonisation Roadmapping and Reporting
- Emission, Efficiency Characterisations and Process Optimisation
- Net Zero Heating Processes
- Computational Modelling and Simulations
- Hydrogen Innovation Centre
- Green Iron and Steelmaking
Energy Efficiency and Heat Recovery
We can calculate the energy efficiency of industrial processes and pinpoint where energy is lost, how it may be used more efficiently and where energy recovery solutions can be implemented.
Decarbonisation Roadmapping and Reporting
Our expertise is in identifying the best technologies to decarbonise specific processes and producing detailed roadmaps to implement the steps to decarbonise without compromising production quality.
Emission, Efficiency Characterisations and Process Optimisation
By combining extensive experience with cutting-edge portable instrumentation and computational tools, we provide bespoke solutions for:
- Monitoring current process operating status
- Modelling improvements
- Supporting on-site implementation
Net Zero Heating Processes
With our experience of combustion technologies, low-carbon fuel switching, electrical and hybrid process heating we can support organisations as they transition to sustainable net zero heating solutions safely.
Computational Modelling and Simulations
In today’s competitive economy, high-quality, innovative processes need to be designed and brought to the market in a fast and cost-effective way. Our fluid, structural, and process computational analysis capability can help achieve this by process design development, performance mapping, and scale up to pilot plant to support commercialisation.
Hydrogen Innovation Centre
Access to equipment and expertise to evaluate, demonstrate and scale up clean hydrogen plans. Facilities and equipment include hydrogen furnaces, development and scale up space, and computational modelling capability.
Green Iron and Steelmaking
Facilities and expertise to make iron using pure hydrogen reduction at pilot and laboratory scale and use it in our steelmaking facilities, which range from 1g to 7 tonnes, to understand the process and material requirements when making steels from low carbon feedstocks.
Expertise in reducing the carbon footprint of conventional iron and steelmaking through process efficiency improvement and the use of alternative carbon sources, and the support of electrolytic metal production from ore or recovered materials.
