Decarbonizing heavy industries: German steel giant wants to set up 500 MW green hydrogen plant
I think this is a crucial and most feasible case of green hydrogen utilization. Here just one example I just came across from my home country.German energy company Steag is helping Thyssenkrupp decarbonize its steel production site in Duisburg-Walsum. Green hydrogen generation is expected to be powered by a mix of wind and solar power.Link to article: https://www.pv-magazine.com/2021/02/26/german-steel-giant-wants-to-set-up-500-mw-green-hydrogen-plant/Feel free to reach out to me and connect here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/reneleven/

Using graphene to extract gold from tailings
Graphene development company SPARC TECHNOLOGIES has demonstrated that its graphene product in solution can adsorb gold and silver from mine tailings dumps.Adsorption, not to be confused with absorption, is a process in which molecules are held loosely on the surface of an adsorbent.The company, which has licenced graphene-based technologies from the University of Adelaide, has shown its product outperformed commercially available adsorbents, opening up a large potential market treating minesite dumps.https://www.aumanufacturing.com.au/sparc-uses-graphene-to-extract-gold-from-tailingshttps://sparctechnologies.com.au/Feel free to reach out to me and connect here:
