Titi Oliyide, Senior Process Safety Engineer at Supercritical, will be speaking at Hazardex Live 2024 about safety and risk management of scaling next generation electrolyser technology.

The safe, efficient and cost effective production of high pressure green hydrogen will play a key role in the energy transition, particularly in the decarbonisation of key industries such as chemicals, heavy transport and high grade industrial heat applications. At Supercritical, we are developing the world’s first ultra-efficient electrolyser to produce high pressure hydrogen (and oxygen) from water. Our proprietary design exploits the benefits of temperature and pressure to efficiently deliver over 99% purity gases at pressures above 200 bar, without the expense or challenges of hydrogen compressors. This will deliver the lowest cost of pressurised green hydrogen, with a vision to achieve 43kWh/kgH2 system efficiency at a cost of less than £1 /kgH2 by 2030.

Safety and risk management is paramount to enable the development of such innovative technology. As we scale from the laboratory to a commercial product, it is essential that Supercritical identifies applicable codes and standards when no Supercritical-specific standards exist. A strategy for achieving compliance at an early stage is essential for an accelerated route to market.
