 IFP energies NouvellesOlivier SissmannResearch scientist Federal Government Power Generation: Renewable I am a geochemist who obtained a BSc in Geology from the University of Queensland, Australia, before travelling back to France to obtain a PhD on CO2 mineral storage from Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris and Ecole Normale Supérieure. I then joined IFP Energies Nouvelles as a research scientist, where I have been working on native H2 emissions ("white hydrogen") ever since, collecting associated rock and gas samples around the globe to understand the origin of geologic H2, quantify its emissions, as well as the generation potential of rock formations.

Our group has a large number of capabilities that may suit projects related to geologic hydrogen.
We can :

(1) efficiently run sampling campaign on the field and run in situ measurements with different detectors, whether it's to detect gases such as H2, analyze water (pH, eH) or screen rock composition for iron;

(2) run stable isotope analysis of H2 and associated volatiles at the lab through GCC-IRMS, whether they are gaseous (CH4, CO2 ...) or dissolved compounds (formate, acetate, methanol...), that indicate H2 consumption in the subsurface to quantify and identify the source of H2. We are also equipped with a highly sensitive GC with a plasma detector that can detect H2 down to the ppm level in small volumes.

(3) analyze water samples for microorganisms consuming H2 (acetogens, methanogens, sulfato-reducers ...).

(4) measure dissolved H2 concentration in water samples, down to the nmolar level with electrochemical sensors.

(5) analyze associated noble gases (such as Helium) to get information on residence time of associated gas flux in the subsurface and its origin (crust or mantle).

(6) analyze rock samples and alteration figures, by combining x-ray diffraction, electronic microcopy, microprobe and µtomography, to determine mineralogy, quantify alteration and iron valency, in order to determine past and future H2 generation potential.

(7) run HP/HT fluid rock interactions experiments, in order to determine H2 generation kinetics of select rock formations (and use it later as input data for numerical modelling).

(8) perform reactive transport modelling on a regional scale, through the use of our own numerical codes.

 H2 Helium LLCWheeler M. "Bo" Sears, Jr.President Small Business Other Energy Technologies Dear Sir/Madam, my company, H2 Helium LLC, is focused on helium and natural hydrogen production principally in the State of Montana. I have been involved in the helium exploration business for the past 23 years, have testified in Congress regarding drilling for helium on Federal Lands, and have written a book (Helium - The Disappearing Element, 2015) about helium. In my investigations, we have uncovered incredibly strong geological hydrogen potential along with helium production from certain areas in the State of Montana. For instance, there is a well that flowed 27% Hydrogen and 2.2% Helium out of the same formation. The areas in question sit on Archean Cratons (oldest rock in North America, and thus the most enriched in Uranium and Thorium) from which iron-rich crustal rock is able to be reduced via serpentinization to produce geological Hydrogen. We are currently installing a "collaborative drilling program" so that multiple interested parties can pursue their own interests (helium, hydrogen, geothermal, lithium, etc) out of a single wellbore. We would enjoy the opportunity to work with ARPA-E on this geological hydrogen effort. Montana represents the most exciting location for geological hydrogen as it is the only State where it was recently tested. Other older wells in Iowa tested very high geological Hydrogen but were not productive. Thank you, Bo Sears

 New ENgland Research, IncGregory BoitnottVice President Small Business Other Energy Technologies New England Research (NER) was founded in 1985 to study the behavior of rocks at in situ conditions from the pore to the meter scale. Over the last 35+ years, NER has developed unique, custom equipment to conduct experiments as part of government and industry supported R&D projects. Progressive improvements in technique, analysis software, and hardware have incorporated into the design of each system which we use for commercial service work as well as sell as commercial products.

Over the past ten years, there has been an increasing demand for rock properties measurements at temperatures up to 450°C and at pressures up 400 MPa for geothermal programs, rock-fluid interactions at mid-crustal depths, frictional properties for studies of intermediate depth earthquakes, engineering of deep boreholes, and geophysical exploration. To support these studies, NER has modified the AutoLab series to operate at these conditions, providing a solid starting point for this study. The HPHT AutoLab systems support NER’s standard measurement options: velocity, permeability, electrical resistivity, and deformation.

We envision our role in a Geologic Hydrogen project to advance the state of the art in laboratory testing and physical properties modeling of petrophysical and geophysical rock properties including coupled THMC deformation during serpentinization. As examples, the integrated laboratory and modeling focused work could be directed at:

• Geophysical properties and their evolution during serpentinization to support for exploration for, and monitoring of, potential test sites.
• Hydromechanical properties for modeling and engineering of sustainable hydrogen generation and the potential of stimulation techniques.
• Integration of testing with modeling capabilities and workflow aimed at engineering the economic production of H2 from ultramafic source rocks.

 GenHydro INCWilliam MonacciDirector Small Business Power Generation: Renewable GenHydro INC is a minority owned early stage renewable energy company this is developing a novel process for producing clean hydrogen at a groundbreaking lower cost compared to established green hydrogen production methods. The process utilizes higher grades of aluminum to include varieties of scrap material in a self sustaining reactant based process that results in hydrogen, electricity, and commercial grade alumina byproducts. The goal of this process is to substantially reduce the requirement for carbon based fuels for the transportation sector including vehicle, rail and eventually the maritime and aviation industries. We are partnering with Stanley Black & Decker and Ford Motor Company among others to aid in reducing their carbon footprint. At its core GenHydro’s technology takes advantage of the metal-water reaction. Certain metals react with water to scavenge the oxygen from the water molecule, liberating hydrogen atoms and forming a metal hydroxide in the process. GenHydro uses this process to react aluminum with water, releasing hydrogen from the water, forming aluminum oxides (alumina), and generating heat. Adding one or more chemical promoters can facilitate the reaction. The GenHydro proprietary process uses two promoters that have been selected based on hydrogen yield, reaction time, aluminum consumption and the cost of material. They aid in removing the metal oxide layer, and can continuously hinder oxide layer formation until the aluminum is fully reacted. The promoter-based approach can be used for lower temperature and lower pressure reaction conditions and can be suitable for smaller scale systems. GenHydro’s system development is focused on optimizing certain parameters associated with the output of the reaction. The important factors that are guiding GenHydro’s system development pathway include minimizing the cost of reactor inputs, optimizing aluminum consumption and hydrogen production, as well as producing high value alumina outputs that can be marketed. The goal of the deployable commercial system is production of 16 kilograms of hydrogen per hour on a continuous basis while utilizing the heat and pressure resulting from the reaction in a turbine based approach to produce 0.78 MW of electricity per hour. The modular system is then scaled depending on the requirements of the user. GenHydro’s current approach, used in testing with the Gen 2 reactor, uses a fine aluminum powder combined with two promoters. The two promo

 TensoraRob MoakCEO Small Business Other Energy Technologies Background:
Tensora is a geophysical services provider that offers both novel geophysical datasets, as well as multiphysics modeling and interpretation services for a variety of applications. We specialize in providing ultra-high resolution strain tensor data for characterizing and monitoring poroelastic processes in the subsurface. We have used shallow strain tensor data measured near the ground surface during well injection tests to characterize the properties and geometry of a reservoir at 500 m depth. Our technology has been developed with over $6M in support from the DOE and NSF.

We are interested in teaming with companies pursuing exploration, characterization or production of geologic hydrogen reservoirs. We will complement those activities by providing valuable monitoring and data interpretation services for tracking pressure changes caused by the migration of Hydrogen and other fluids in the subsurface.

Our capabilities include designing and deploying state-of-the-art instruments to conduct ultra-high resolution in situ deformation monitoring, as well as applying multiphysics models to interpret the resulting datasets. Our instruments deployed at shallow depths can characterize deformation caused by pressure variations at much greater depths. Interpreting these data can help track the migration of Hydrogen or other fluids in the subsurface. These capabilities could reduce costs of drilling and exploration, and help mitigate risks of leakage during production.
