Don’t miss the opportunity to visit to Vale’s nickel refinery hydrogen and algae demo plants in Port Talbot, an initiative led by RICE (Reducing Industrial Carbon Emissions) in the South Wales Industrial Cluster.
The RICE biorefinery demonstrates CO2 utilisation through algae to carbohydrates, proteins and lipids, as well as speciality chemicals such as phycoerythrin and phycocyanin pigments (up to £72,000 per kg). The refinery is working with multiple end users and is enabled by design to create a value chain model for commercial CO2 utilisation.
Unlike the vast majority of commercial hydrogen production, the RICE green hydrogen electrolysis employs green energy and rainwater as the only inputs. ROI has been determined to be only 2-3 years depending on cost of energy and use of of H2 and O2 as side products.
