Emerson and Cavendish renewable technology collaborate to revolutionise hydrogen applications
Jul 26 2023
In a groundbreaking partnership, global technology and software leader Emerson has joined forces with Cavendish Renewable Technology (CRT), an innovative start-up based in Australia, to drive the advancement of hydrogen production solutions. By harnessing Emerson's cutting-edge automation and software portfolio, CRT aims to enhance efficiency, safety, emissions reduction, and speed up time-to-market for hydrogen-based solutions.
As the world strives to find sustainable energy alternatives, hydrogen has emerged as a highly promising carrier of clean energy. With its remarkable potential to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, hydrogen technologies have become a focal point for researchers, industries, and governments worldwide.
Ani Kulkarni, Ph.D., CEO of CRT, expressed his optimism about the future of hydrogen, stating, "It's going to be a golden era for hydrogen over the next decade." He believes that collaborating with Emerson will enable CRT to optimise and scale their operations, ultimately accelerating the global adoption of hydrogen technologies to meet energy targets and reduce global emissions.
As part of the agreement, Emerson will leverage its extensive expertise in automation, encompassing software, control systems, instrumentation, valves, and safety solutions, to enhance CRT's hydrogen electrolysers and ammonia processing equipment.
Mike Train, Senior Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer at Emerson, highlighted the significance of this collaboration, stating, "Emerson's hydrogen experience and automation technology will help CRT digitalise its operations, ensuring improved safety and reliability, while expediting the delivery of hydrogen-based products and solutions."
CRT's CEO, Ani Kulkarni, elaborated on the value proposition of the partnership. He explained, "Our proprietary electrolyser technology allows for the large-scale production of green hydrogen, which we aim to make cost-competitive with fossil fuels. Additionally, our ammonia solution has the unique ability to convert ammonia directly into electricity, streamlining the process and significantly reducing energy consumption compared to traditional methods of ammonia-to-hydrogen conversion."
