CATAGEN launches five patent-protected net zero prototypes to help industry decarbonise and reduce emissions

  • Belfast-based net zero emissions and air quality technology company CATAGEN has launched five new advanced climate technologies which enable the production of green hydrogen and e-fuels that could help the industry significantly reduce carbon emissions.

    In early 2022 CATAGEN received five funding awards from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy’s Net Zero Innovation Portfolio to help accelerate research and testing of its range of net zero products. Using that funding, in the space of just nine months CATAGEN has developed new ways to generate green hydrogen, bio-hydrogen and e-fuels, as well as complementary systems for carbon capture and hydrogen compression.

    CATAGEN CEO Dr Andrew Woods said: “Technology, talent, and a united sense of purpose have taken us to the point where today our team can launch ClimaHtech, a configurable system which uses advanced climate technologies to produce green hydrogen and efuels. This technology is scalable and by adopting efficient green hydrogen energy powered by renewable sources such as wind and solar, we can help fulfil net zero pledges across multi-sector industries.”

    CATAGEN’s initial focus is on decarbonising industry, working with manufacturing, transportation and renewable energy companies to provide a new source of renewable energy and improve air quality. But it is also producing solutions that address wider problems with energy security, grid stability and aviation fuel emissions.
