Safe use of hydrogen for lab and pilot scale

The purpose of this document is to supply necessary information for safe handlingof hydrogen for lab and pilot scale applications of HARARE project. Whenhydrogen is oxidized with oxygen, the only by-product is water vapor, making itan ideal energy carrier and oxidizing agent for a green environmentally friendlyand sustainable economy. Hydrogen is however commonly viewed as […]

Meet the students here: Students extracting metals from Red Mud Download their paper: Bauxite Residue Agglomerate at Elevated […]

Bauxite Residue Agglomerate at Elevated Temperatures for Iron and Alumina Recovery

Bauxite Residue Agglomerate at Elevated Temperatures for Iron and Alumina Recovery The hydrogen reduction of bauxite residue lime pellets at elevated temperatures was carried out to recover iron and alumina from the bauxite residue in a new process route. Prior to the H2 reduction, oxide pellets were initially prepared via the mixing of an industrial […]

Climate-friendly metal production – why is it difficult?

Climate-friendly metal production – why is it difficult? Most people know that metals are made from ore, but how do we make gold from gravel? That’s the process we must understand to be able to make the metal industry climate friendly. Here are some alternatives for CO2-free metal production. Read this article if you want […]

Extracting iron from Red Mud by use of hydrogen

Extracting iron from Red Mud by use of hydrogen Meet Dr. Ahmad Hassanzadeh! He endeavours to discover a sustainable, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly approach for extracting iron (Fe) as well as titanium, copper, scandium and rare earth elements (Ti, Cu, Sc and REEs) from the red mud which is waste from the Al industry. It […]

Working with hydrogen gas

Working with hydrogen gas Meet Esin! Esin Iplik is a phd-student at Linde. She works with hydrogen, a highly flammable gas that burns with an almost invisible flame! More specific she is working on hydrogen oxyfuel combustion (combustion of hydrogen with pure oxygen instead of air) at the combustion lab in Unterschleißheim – Linde Technology […]

Fun facts about hydrogen transportation

Fun facts about hydrogen transportation: This huge truck contains only 395 kg of hydrogen, but that is actually a lot of hydrogen!! Linde transports hydrogen in huge trucks. The volume of hydrogen is 4,400 Nm3, which corresponds to 1.76 Olympic swimming pools at normal conditions. However, hydrogen is transported under 200 bar pressure. This corresponds […]
