Enriching Natural Gas with Hydrogen: Implications for Burner Operation


This paper presents the results of increasing the hydrogen concentration in natural gas distributed within the territory of the Slovak Republic. The range of hydrogen concentrations in the mathematical model is considered to be from 0 to 100 vol.% for the resulting combustion products, temperature, and heating value, and for the scientific assessment of the environmental and economic implications. From a technical perspective, it is feasible to consider enriching natural gas with hydrogen up to a level of 20% within the Slovak Republic. CO2 emissions are estimated to be reduced by 3.76 tons for every 1 TJ of energy at an operational cost of EUR 10,000 at current hydrogen prices.

Funding source: This research was funded by project APVV-21-APVV-21-0142: The potential of hydrogen utilization in metallurgical industry of SR aimed on decrease of CO2 production.
