Asia 7| Industrial hydrogen purification and recovery at refineries and plants


Over US$15 billlon worth of hydrogen is lost every year when hydrogen is separated from other gases at industrial plants and refineries because the gas is considered “too hard to recover” due to the heat and contaminants involved.

DiviGas’s new membrane is a nano-molecular filter that can recycle this lost gas and therefore bring billions in savings. Also, since it takes about 9 tons of carbon dioxide to make 1 ton of hydrogen, DiviGas can sustainably avoid the production of over 100 million tons of carbon dioxide per year in the process.
