JERA Announces Mixed Combustion of Hydrogen at Linden Gas Thermal

Source: 7/28/2021, Location: North America

JERA Co., Inc. (“JERA”), through its subsidiary JERA Americas Inc., has invested in the operating company that operates its Linden Gas-fired Power Generation Project in the United States. The operating company has concluded an agreement with Phillips 66, a major oil refiner in the United States, to receive refinery produced fuel gas containing hydrogen.

The operating company will modify the existing gas turbine at Linden Gas Thermal Power Station Unit 6 so that refinery produced fuel gas containing hydrogen, supplied by Phillips 66’s Bayway Oil Refinery adjacent to the power station, can be co-fired with natural gas. After completion of this modification in 2022, Linden Gas Thermal Power Station Unit 6 will be capable of mixed combustion with up to 40% hydrogen, reducing CO2 emissions by as much as approximately 10% of annual CO2 emission in unit 6.

It is expected to take some time before hydrogen can be used for power generation in Japan because this will require the development of carrier technology. JERA will work to resolve technical issues and advance the use of hydrogen in power plants in the United States, where hydrogen is available, with the aim of accumulating technological capabilities and experience that can be applied to future domestic and overseas projects.

Under its “JERA Zero CO2 Emissions 2050” objective, JERA has been working to eliminate CO2 emissions from its domestic and overseas businesses by 2050, promoting the adoption of greener fuels and pursuing thermal power that does not emit CO2 during power generation. JERA will continue to contribute to energy industry decarbonization through its own proactive efforts to develop decarbonization technologies while ensuring economic rationality.
