Innovative Hydrogen Production for the Energy Transition

BrightLoop™ Next Generation Low-Carbon Technology for Power and Industry

Hydrogen Economy BrightLoop Low Carbon Platform Technology Babcock Wilcox

B&W has developed an innovative energy production technology that can simultaneously support industry’s low carbon initiatives and the energy transition. The BrightLoop™ process from B&W can be used for a wide range of applications, including hydrogen production.

Our innovative BrightLoop™ hydrogen technology can be used for a wide range of applications utilizing a variety of feedstocks, such as biomass, biogas, natural gas, coal, refinery byproducts, methane and other industrial process off-gases and materials, to convert into multiple products.

The BrightLoop system is highly scalable and can be applied to a range of industrial processes delivering a net zero outcome through the production of hydrogen, synthesis gas (syngas) for transportation, and other renewable uses including steam for power, process or heating.

The process also inherently isolates carbon dioxide (CO2) for storage/sequestration or beneficial use. There is no need for post-combustion CO2 scrubbing, thus, significantly reducing both capital and operating costs.
