ABOUT ZELK

HYDROGEN - PRODUCTION AND SUPPLY

A large number of municipalities and industrial enterprises are feeling the pressure to decarbonize their energy - to have both a clean and stable energy ecosystem. Yet these entities have a dilemma. If they invest heavily in hydrogen vehicles and energy platforms, the supply of hydrogen does not exist. If they invest heavily in hydrogen production, the market for off takers is too early and immature. ZELK fills this market gap.

WASTE HEAT HYDROGEN INNOVATIONS

PRODUCTION OF LOW-COST HYDROGEN

Zelk produces low-cost hydrogen from industrial waste heat and biogas, mainly to power CO2-free transport. Our approach is inspired by circularity, sectorial coupling of the energy system and the ambition to use waste such as industrial waste heat and carbon dioxide as resources. The coupling to the waste heat and district heat sector enables us to produce cheap electricity for hydrogen production, and it also allows us to create more modern, efficient and resilient regional power systems. For us, using waste heat is a cornerstone for the decarbonization of heavy industry.

DECARBONIZING TRANSPORT

Zelk creates a financially efficient and way to convert existing trucks, tractors and other diesel combustion engines to partial hydrogen operation. The transition to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles by wholesale replacement of inventory is in most cases financially untenable. While facilitating the acquisition of new vehicles, our approach avoids these replacement costs, allowing many existing trucks and buses to run on clean hydrogen now.

ECONOMICALLY EFFICIENT

Zelk uses waste heat to fuel electrolysis to produce hydrogen. This means that hydrogen is created where it will be used, eliminating the need to store and transport hydrogen from creation plants to where transport fleets are located.

Zelk works with municipalities to introduce hydrogen-based transport such as cars, garbage trucks, long-haul trucks, mining equipment, tractors, ships, and trains. We nurture these off-takers through:

  • Dual-combustion conversion technology

  • Pilot projects with marine ships and mining / agriculture sectors

  • Partnerships with OEMs to offer next-gen vehicles

  • Partnerships with ports working to decarbonize
