“Don't expect things to change if you always do the same thing.”
Through our innovative technology we aim to drive the energy transition to transform the world by producing green H2, carbon-neutral synthetic HC and renewable energy in a sustainable way, in any location, and at reduced cost.
Blackstone Resilience Ltd UK and Hydrocarbon Engineering SL Spain have signed a cooperation agreement for the development green hydrogen production with new innovative techniques and processes that are revolutionary to the hydrogen production world. A true proven method to procure abundant, fully green energy simply from water.
As the oil-and-gas industry struggles to secure its place in a world shifting away from fossil fuels, major energy companies are making a grab for the rising hydrogen market.
Hydrogen is expected to play a vital role in slashing emissions in a number of highly polluting industries that now face strict climate targets. The fuel, which burns clean when mixed with oxygen in a fuel cell, can power households, factories, cars, ships and planes.
There are still significant hurdles facing hydrogen, but major oil companies in Europe, including Royal Dutch Shell PLC, BP PLC and Repsol SA, are ramping up their investments. They’re betting that their expertise and infrastructure can give them an edge in this growing market, and they see government aid and profits down the road.

WHO WE ARE
From the chemical processes of biomass treatment designed by us, we developed a revolutionary process for sustainable production of renewable H2 and synthesis of carbon-neutral hydrocarbon fuels and polymers, all with zero emissions and at a reduced price.
At HE we are developing the technology and process applications that will transform the way we produce and use energy into an environmentally sustainable and renewable circular economy.
CARBON-NEUTRAL SYNTHETIC HYDROCARBONS
The HE process decomposes water and hydrogenates biomass, CO2, coal, etc., in a single stage to synthesize hydrocarbons such as fatty acids, polymers and high value-added fuels at low cost and in an environmentally friendly manner.
The product obtained from the HE process is a stoichiometric mixture of H2 and O2 gases like the water from which they come. This mixture is known as oxyhydrogen or "brown gas" and, depending on how the HE process is tuned, it is transformed into the different products available from the HE technology.
- Zero emissions process, no COx, NOx, SOx, or particles.
- Sustainable, renewable process, it only needs water.
- 91% efficiency, only 3kWh for each kg of H2 obtained from water.
- On-site production that provides energy security.
- Production on demand that improves productivity.
- No need for a renewable plant, not dependent on the climate.
- Stable production cost, independent of markets.
- CAPEX and OPEX well below any H2 technology.
NATURAL GAS SUBSTITUTE
Oxyhydrogen can be burned to produce green heat and/or electricity, with zero emissions and replacing fossil fuels.
GREEN H2 AND O2
The mixture of H2 and O2 can be separated to produce, without emissions, two industrial gases that are in very high demand throughout the world.
Is this possible? Yes, we have discovered a way of decomposing water by a thermochemical process at reduced temperature and pressure, thanks to our specific catalysts and reagents by which we lower the reaction temperature to a tenth of that required by electrolysis and generate the heat necessary for the reaction without requiring an input of energy from outside. Thus, the HE process exceeds all known green H2 production technology in terms of efficiency and competitiveness.
Sustainable, renewable and competitive mass production of green H2 from water with zero emissions
6-7 EUROS/KG IS THE AVERAGE COST OF PRODUCING GREEN H2 BY ELECTROLYSIS TODAY
THE EU EXPECTS THE COST OF GREEN H2 TO HALVE USING CONVENTIONAL TECHNOLOGY BY 2030
BY 2020 OUR TECHNOLOGY REDUCES THE COST OF GREEN H2 BY 30% COMPARED TO ANY OTHER TECHNOLOGY
BY 2030 OUR PROCESS WILL PRODUCE GREEN H2 AT 50% OF THE PRICE OF ANY OTHER TECHNOLOGY
Today, hydrogen is mainly used as an industrial gas.
Today, the global market is worth $115.75 billion (2017) and has grown steadily by 5% year-on-year since 1975.
A new demand for hydrogen and electricity to boost clean transport and decarbonise industrial processes will further expand this market.
According to the "Hydrogen Council", the energy transition towards a decarbonised economy will increase the value of the hydrogen market 20 times over by 2050.

Green H2 will be the energy and economy of the future
Hydrogen is seen as a future fuel for transport, but its widespread use is probably beyond what is popularly perceived.
With an annual energy demand equivalent to 280m toe, transport accounts for about one third of all CO2 emissions in the EU, its decarbonisation is key to achieving the energy transition. H2 is the most promising decarbonisation option.
Potential to generate approximately 2,250 terawatt hours (TWh) of H2 in Europe by 2050, representing approximately a quarter of total EU energy demand.
For hydrogenation in cracking processes, European refineries consume 2,100,000 t/year of H2.
For Chemical Companies
In producing ammonia, methanol and polymers the European chemical industry consumes 4,100,000 t/year of H2.
Used mainly for the reduction of iron. The demand for H2 is 410,000 t/year in Europe alone.
And other industries
Semiconductors, glass, food, pharmaceuticals, etc. The demand for H2 from other industries in Europe exceeds 69,000 t/year of H2.
