Hydrogen Project Award


Cvictus Inc.

Mannville EHR Project

Cv̄ictus is developing the first-of-it’s-kind Mannville Enhanced Hydrogen Recovery (EHR™) Project to produce 7 tpd of clean hydrogen east of Red Deer, Alberta. EHR™ produces hydrogen that is ‘cleaner than green and cheaper than grey’, less than half the cost of hydrogen from dominant steam methane reforming and lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than hydrogen from water electrolysis using hydropower. EHR™ extracts hydrogen-rich syngas from ultra-deep coal and brine and re-injects associated CO2 back into the same deep seam for permanent geological sequestration, producing clean hydrogen by turning coal ‘from a source to a sink’ of CO2. Our low-cost, low-carbon hydrogen can be used directly (heat, power, transportation), or processed further to produce the ‘greenest blue’ ammonia, methanol, and other chemicals. Cv̄ictus already has completed essentially all pre-construction milestones and anticipates approval of required permits in spring 2023. The Mannville EHR™ Project will consist of the underground infrastructure (horizontal wells) required to produce 5 tph of syngas and the associated surface plant to produce 7 tpd clean hydrogen and sequester CO2. This initial modular plant can be rapidly expanded ten-fold and duplicated at many other sites in North America and around the world.

Air Products Canada Ltd

A New Engineering Model for Predicting the Behavior of Hydrogen Jet Fires

The industrial record for hydrogen safety has been excellent over the years, and it is expected that the expanded use of hydrogen into new applications will meet or exceed expectations for safety. Hydrogen is not more or less safe than other fuels. Hydrogen systems must be designed around the unique properties of hydrogen and these properties must be well understood. With Air Products commitment to safety as the top priority, we needed to understand the behaviors and risks associated with hydrogen jet fires as one of our many hydrogen safety initiatives.     A hydrogen jet fire model has been implemented in the PHAST and SAFETI software licensed by DNV. The jet fire model was originally developed from a multi-year program led by Air Products to understand hydrogen jet fires, including extensive field testing at full scale. The work started in 2009 at the DNV Spadeadam test facility in the United Kingdom, with high pressure hydrogen releases and horizontal flames up to 50 meters in length. This was followed by full scale vertical hydrogen flare tests at an Air Products world-scale hydrogen plant and smaller scale testing at Air Products’ R&D labs. In addition, the company collected test data available in the public domain from the 1970s to the current day.  From all this data, Air Products developed a new engineering model for hydrogen jet fires.  Air Products and DNV decided to consider including the model in the PHAST and SAFETI software.  After an extensive independent review by DNV and further model refinements, the model is now included in PHAST and SAFETI as the Miller jet fire model, making it broadly accessible to industry with over 10,000 users in 1,000 organizations.  Project leads include Air Products, Derek Miller Process Safety Director and DNV, David Worthington Head of Plant Analytics.


Canadian Nuclear Laboratories

Hydrogen Safety Workshop Towards a Holistic Canadian Approach for Safety

On November 24, CNL’s Hydrogen team, in collaboration with AECL’s Science & Technology team, hosted 68 experts in Ottawa across a number of sectors who share one very important thing in common; a role in building Canada’s hydrogen economy. After all, hydrogen is a key enabler for decarbonisation, and countries pledging to reach net zero emissions by 2050 are investing in the research, development, and infrastructure to make it happen.  However, ensuring safety and challenges related to hydrogen safety is a critical part of this investment. Are Canadian companies experiencing safety-related issues? Are there gaps in supporting safe deployment? What opportunities might exist to foster current and future development? These were the key questions posed at our first Hydrogen Safety Workshop, and the responses were a strong indicator that CNL and AECL have an opportune role in taking a leading role in advancing hydrogen safety support in Canada.
