Process plant emissions control
June 2020

There is now a serious problem in industry with harmful emissions from process plants – particularly in applications such as refineries and power generation. A significant component in controlling emissions is to ensure that combustion processes are efficient. In order to achieve this, it is necessary to ensure that air is fed into the process in the correct proportion to the combustible products present. Unfortunately, most of the problems encountered in controlling combustion processes are due to inadequate control of the air mixture entering the process.

The African Hydrogen Partnership Conference
May 2020

In the context of carbon emissions and the need for green energy, the first African Hydrogen Partnership (AHP) Conference was held from 19-20 February at the United Nations Conference Centre in Addis Ababa. The AHP is the initiative of Siggi Huegemann and Vincent Oldenbroek and is aimed at the establishment of an AHP Trade Association, which will draw on the skills and energies of both trade and academic organisations to establish and develop the generation and use of hydrogen as an energy source throughout Africa.

Is hydrogen gas really dangerous?
March 2020

As with many things, the answer to this question is not a simple yes or no. The average person when confronted with the question of handling hydrogen gas immediately makes an association with two rather dramatic past events. The first was the appalling fate of the Hindenburg airship and its unfortunate passengers. This incident in 1937 brought to an end the short life of airships as serious passenger transport vehicles. The second is, of course, the dreaded atomic bomb, used to destroy the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
