The Hydrogenious Technologies GmbH is a pioneer and global industry leader in the field of hydrogen storage in Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC) materials.

Industry Score


Initial Diligence

Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC) are liquid oils that can chemically store hydrogen at high storage densities under ambient conditions. Our LOHC oil (dibenzyltoluene) enables high-cacpacity hydrogen transport in the exsiting infrastructure for fossil fuels. The LOHC oil is hardly flammable and non-explosive eliminating the risk of large-scale hydrogen storage and transport. With the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg becoming a shareholder in May 2014 and the successful close of a Series A funding round in July 2014 with Anglo American Platinum as investor, Hydrogenious Technologies is now backed with strong scientific, strategic and financial capacities to revolutionize large-scale energy and hydrogen storage.

Product Features

Containerized Systems

Containerized systems for medium-scale projects and application piloting with predefined footprint and thus an easy on-site installation. Our containerized systems are available up to 150 Nm³/h hydrogen capacity. For details, please download the brochure below.

Skid Mounted Systems

Skid-mounted systems for large-scale hydrogen storage, designed for direct coupling with SMR or large-scale electrolysis. Plants can be custom-sized starting at 5.000 Nm³/h.

ReleaseUnit Optimization

The ReleaseUNIT is designed to release hydrogen from the LOHC oil. The dehydrogenation process is optimized for continuous operation and long-term stability. The endothermic hydrogen release process requires heat, which can be supplied by high-temperature waste-heat, natural gas, electricity or hydrogen. The systems are available as easy to install containerized systems (C-Series), ideal for hydrogen refueling stations and industrial supply.
