Hycamite —
decarbonising industry

Hycamite is decarbonising industry using its proprietary methane pyrolysis technology. It provides its industrial clients with low-carbon hydrogen and sustainable carbon products for demanding applications.


From natural gas to low-carbon hydrogen


Industry uses 500 million tonnes of natural gas annually, and burning 1 kg of natural gas releases 2.75 kg of CO₂ into the atmosphere. Decarbonising our use of natural gas will make a tremendous difference to our planet’s future. Using Hycamite’s technology, clients can gradually increase their use of hydrogen in natural-gas-based processes.



Hycamite can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from hydrogen production



SMR hydrogen production has high CO₂ emissions


SMR: steam methane reforming
Production of 1 kg SMR hydrogen releases around 9 kg CO₂ into the atmosphere, producing 720 - 820 million tonnes of CO₂ emissions yearly from SMR hydrogen production.

Thermo-catalytic decomposition (TCD) of methane is an effective and affordable method for clean hydrogen production. Using TCD, Hycamite breaks down methane with proprietary catalysts and heat. Methane from natural gas, biogas or industrial side streams can be used in pyrolysis.

The hydrogen produced with Hycamite’s technology is carbon neutral. Hycamite has developed a cutting-edge carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technology. Hydrogen production can even be carbon negative, if methane from biogas or synthetic methane made with carbon captured from the atmosphere is used.




A tremendous difference to our planet’s future


Currently the industry produces almost all of its hydrogen with SMR. For that, the industry uses some 250 million tonnes of natural gas annually to produce hydrogen. The gas is needed to produce some 90 million tonnes of hydrogen.



Current hydrogen production methods are CO₂-intensive
