Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association welcomes Hycamite as a new member

Hycamite has joined the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) as a Start-Up Member.

Hycamite has joined the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) as a Start-Up Member.

Hycamite TCD Technologies is a leader in emission-free methane pyrolysis technology. Hycamite decarbonises industry through its low-carbon hydrogen, novel solutions for hydrogen storage and transport, and provision of sustainable carbon products for demanding industrial applications.

“We are happy to join the CHFCA, because Hycamite is committed to serving its clients in Canada. The advantages of the methane pyrolysis technology are already well-known in Canada and we can provide a solution for growing demand of the Canadian industry”, says Ms Laura Rahikka, CEO and Founder of Hycamite.

Hycamite technology decomposes large volumes of methane into its component elements: hydrogen and carbon. Hycamite’s thermo-catalytic decomposition (TCD) of methane does not release emissions into the atmosphere. Furthermore, its catalysts are sustainable, and Hycamite’s technology requires only 13% of the energy needed to produce hydrogen by electrolysis.

Using methane as feedstock allows hydrogen production to be scaled rapidly. Hydrogen can be produced from methane from natural gas, biomethane or synthetic methane. Using Hycamite’s technology, the petrochemical industry’s side streams can also be used as feedstock. If e-methane were made with ambient CO2 or biomethane, the whole process would be carbon negative.

Hycamite’s technology is a cutting-edge carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS) technology. Hydrogen can be used as an industrial raw material or as fuel. Hycamite’s carbon nanoproducts can be used for demanding applications, including Li-ion batteries, concrete, composite materials, and filter purifiers.

Hycamite is a privately-owned company headquartered in Kokkola, Finland. Hycamite’s methane pyrolysis technology is based on long-standing research in applied chemistry from the University of Oulu, Finland.
