SES – HyDepot is a start-up company, founded in 2013.
SES - HyDepot has received a funding from the Austrian Wirtschaftsservice (AWS) in 2017 for the realization of a first prototype of the patented technology.
SES - HyDepot has initiated the project HyMethShip, funded by the European Commission. This project involves renowned partners from the ship and engine building industry, has started in 2018 and is aiming to realize a ca. 1 MW demonstrator-plant. Within this project SES is responsible for the development of the process design.
The process developed and patented by SES - HyDepot allows to store hydrogen space efficiently in the form of methanol. The high energy efficiency of this process is based inter alia on the fact, that the carbon dioxide, generated during the release of hydrogen, is stored within the process and can therefore be used for the synthesis of new methanol.
