Hydrogen Hub Asturias: Investigación para disponer de una instalación científica diferencial que impulse la cadena de valor del hidrógeno verde

MAGNA DEA participa en el proyecto “Hydrogen Hub Asturias: Investigación para disponer de una instalación científica diferencial que impulse la cadena de valor del hidrógeno verde”.
El proyecto tiene como objetivo general la investigación y desarrollo de tecnologías relacionadas con toda la cadena de valor del hidrógeno, desde su generación, hasta su uso, pasando por el transporte, almacenamiento o recuperación del gas a partir de corrientes industriales. Estas tecnologías se conceptualizarán en equipos de prueba que permitirán crear una infraestructura científica de referencia, a nivel regional y nacional, para el desarrollo de futuras actividades de I+D+i relacionadas con la generación y empleo de hidrógeno verde en el entorno industrial.

Este proyecto ha sido subvencionado por la Unión Europea – Next Generation EU a través del Mecanismo de Recuperación y Resiliencia y por la Consejería de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidad del Principado de Asturias con cargo a los fondos procedentes del Mecanismo de Recuperación y Resiliencia, en el marco de la convocatoria de subvenciones a consorcios integrados por distintos agentes del sistema asturiano de ciencia y tecnología, para el desarrollo de proyectos de I+D+i en el Área de Energía e Hidrógeno Renovable para el período 2021 a 2025.

COV-RED, Proyecto innovador de geolocalización y alerta temprana automatizada de brotes de Covid-19 a través de aguas residuales

The COV-RED project integrates robotic engineering, analytical chemistry and microbiology into a system capable of detecting the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater, directly in sewage networks, up to 16 days before infected people in a particular geographical area start to develop symptoms.

Use of “Biohydro-gas” in an Ultra Efficient Carnot Ceramic Engine.

The C-ICE-BIOHYDRO project develops a complete system that makes it possible to use the innovative internal combustion ceramic engine able to use biohydrogas (hydrogen generated from waste) as fuel, maximising the performance of the engine compared to conventional engines and reducing emissions to practically zero.

Compact system for the gasification of organic waste under supercritical conditions to obtain synthesis gas rich in H2

Compact and scalable system of syngas generation with high concentration of H2 and high PCI, using organic residues with high moisture content as raw material, based on a process of gasification with water under supercritical conditions. The system allows obtaining pure H2 and CH4. The economic ratios (IRR, amortization, ..) are more attractive compared to existing technologies.



Innovative and sustainable system of energy production from waste

Design and development of an economic energy supply system, with low-carbon energy emissions, based on the production of biofuels- gaseous and liquid- from organic agriculture waste and other sources, which are transformed into electrical energy by means of cogeneration.

The main aim of the project is to test, implement and subsequently commercialized, a fundamentally new technology for the design and development of a low-cost and low carbon electricity supply system. The innovative scientific and technical products related to this technology namely are:

 1. A vortex/swirling gasifier using wastes as raw material such as agricultural waste, timber and wastes from woodworking industries. What is more, other wastes that can be used are organic technological or technogenic wastes, including those coming from the coal industry, and municipal solid waste – nearly 30 different typologies of organic waste were already successfully tested.

2. A power generation system using the vortex gas generator products as fuel.

3. Auxiliary equipment (fuel system, cooling system, filtration system, automatic control system and special components for the autonomous operation of the gas piston).

High efficiency gasification system

The gasification of biomass in supercritical water (GASC) is a technology in the research phase that is carried out under conditions of pressure and temperatures higher than the critical point of water (374ºC and 221 bar). Under these conditions, GASC is a promising technology for the production of clean energy, which uses organic waste with a high moisture content (which is not suitable for conventional commercial gasification). The resulting product is a gas with a high content of H2 and low in CO2, which can be used as an alternative fuel.

The Government of the Principality of Asturias, through the FICYT (Foundation for the Promotion of Applied Scientific Research and Technology in Asturias) with funds coming from the Science, Technology and Innovation Plan (PCTI) of Asturias, has granted a grant to Magna Dea for the development of the DRY-FREE high efficiency gasification system. This project will also have other aid - within the "Jovellanos" Program, for the recruitment of university graduates to carry out activities related to research, technological development and innovation, during the period 2014-2015.
