1 Hydrogen Pittsburgh The Future of Fuel by Anel Abdrashova David Carulli Kate Gilland Chris Little

2 The Future of Fuel

3 City Selection Criteria 1) PA has the second largest number of active nuclear plants for electrolysis

4 City Selection Criteria 2) Marcellus Shale is the largest U.S. source for natural gas, which is used in Steam Methane Reformation

5 City Selection Criteria 3)Northeast Region with existing Natural Gas Pipeline Infrastructure from the Gulf

6 Hydrogen Production Selection High Temperature Nuclear Electrolysis Approx 64% efficiency Requires 62.5kWh to produce 1 kg H2 Western PA prices ($.0834/kWh) $5.21/kg H2 production only Oxygen by-product sales *Conclusion: too expensive Notables Landfill gas(and possible supplement to our SMR) Similar cost to SMR Releases harmful chemicals upon burning 100 acre Imperial Landfill produces 1 million MMBTU/year(=8.8 mil kg H2/year, which is 3.5% of our needs) *Conclusion: possible supplement Wind Energy PA is the largest wind power state east of the Mississippi, potential to produce 15% of consumption $3.5 Million/2MW capacity turbine (=17,520kWh=280,000 kg H2/year, which is.1% of our needs so we would need 1000 turbines, for $3.5 Billion) *Conclusion: extremely high initial investment, high land cost/taxes, may be more profitable as electricity

7 Hydrogen Production Selection Hydrogen from Steam Methane Reformation Natural Gas Price in PA $5.44/million BTU industrial $3.80/million BTU wellhead price Hydrogen from SMR(3 times NG price) $11.40/million BTU/8.793 kg H2=$1.29 untaxed, undistributed Emissions only 60% of Gasoline Alternative *assumed 70% efficiency, wellhead price Gasoline Gas Price($3.87/gal taxed, 115,000 BTU/gal=$33.74/million BTU taxed)

8 Hydrogen Delivery Pipeline $0.80/kg Investment=$6.3 million (at $1mil/mile) Extra storage capacity may be available in depleted petroleum reservoirs which are prominent in western PA(needs extra bulk geologic/liquid storage) Pressures are adequate to fill hydrogen carriers(propane tanks) Truck Delivery $1.40/kg Emissions from delivery trucks 10 hour dispensing time Need 2 trucks/day Recurring cost Liquefaction for Delivery Loses too much energy in storage Major losses in liquefaction

9 Hydrogen Storage Underground Smaller footprint near urban areas Above Ground Lower Initial Cost Conclusion: Higher recurring property tax Air Products' underground LH 2 tank being installed at the Shell Hydrogen refueling station in Washington DC in solar-hydrogen-home-bottles-sunshine/1184
