Next Hydrogen, Black & Veatch sign MoU to develop large-scale integrated green hydrogen solutions

Next Hydrogen Solutions Inc., a designer and manufacturer of electrolyzers, recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Black & Veatch, a global engineering, procurement, consulting and construction company, to offer a complete and integrated solution for producing large-scale green hydrogen for industrial customers.

Next Hydrogen will combine its technology and electrolysis expertise with Black & Veatch’s market leadership in large-scale industrial engineering solutions to target broad applications worldwide for industrial and transportation customers.

The industrial sector is increasingly pursuing hydrogen as a viable solution towards decarbonization, spurring a growing sense of urgency for the expansion of green hydrogen technology.

The MoU is a non-exclusive agreement under which Next Hydrogen and Black & Veatch will develop a large-scale, multi-megawatt green hydrogen solution and identify areas of deeper collaboration and specific opportunities worldwide.

Founded in 2007, Next Hydrogen is a designer and manufacturer of electrolyzers. Next Hydrogen’s unique cell design architecture—supported by 39 patents—enables high-current-density operations and superior dynamic response to convert intermittent renewable electricity efficiently into green hydrogen on an infrastructure scale.


Next Hydrogen says that its technology combines the key benefits of the two major electrolyzer technologies: PEM (dynamic response) and alkaline (module lifetime).


Following successful pilots, Next Hydrogen is scaling up its technology to deliver commercial solutions to decarbonize transportation and industrial sectors.



There is a conflict between hydrogen from electrolysers and gold hydrogen. IF the price of 1 kilo of hydrogen is 1 dollar, im ready to buy.


Even if gold hydrogen is feasible, it's still a fossil resource and won't last long.  As a way to decarbonize in the short term it may have a lot of merit; it can pick up the slack until we've built out our nuclear thermochemical hydrogen production.

@ engineer-poet. Are you ready to buy ? the sooner people buy hydrogen cars the better this solution have a chance to stop climate change. Im also a fan of the latest nuclear generation reactor, i don't know why it is a slow adoption process, it should be adopted now everywhere.


I've got a plug-in hybrid car.  It's fuel-agnostic for local driving; if it puts watts on the grid, I can use it.  Hydrogen, nuclear, they're all the same to me.  Why would I want a hydrogen car?

I could use hydrogen to replace natural gas.  I already have the pipeline to my house, I just need to replace what's in it.



Depending on the price of batteries, as I fancy CATL's sodium chemistry, either a fuel cell hybrid or an ICE hybrid using ammonia/DME fuel may make sense:


Either would get rid of the nasty bits of using your hybrid, whilst not needing a thumping great heavy battery.

The notion that there is only one solution does not make sense to me, the technologies seem able to provide a variety of decent solutions to use for different applications and usage patterns.
