Hycamite has begun construction of the new Customer Sample Facility (CSF) building in Kokkola, Finland.
The construction phase at Kokkola Industrial Park (KIP) was launched after receiving all the necessary permits from the authorities. No appeals were received by the end of the appeal period. The orders for the equipment have already been placed in 2023.
Hycamite’s CSF is intended to demonstrate the viability of the new methane-splitting technology. Hycamite’s technology decomposes large volumes of methane into its component elements– hydrogen and carbon—while avoiding the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The nominal capacity of the CSF will reach 2,000 tons of hydrogen and 6,000 tons of high-quality carbon per year once the project is fully completed.
The decarbonisation capacity of the CSF can be up to 18,000 tons CO2 per year when liquefied natural gas (LNG) is used, and with biomethane, carbon removals can also occur. LNG is shipped from Norway using the Kokkola LNG terminal, and biomethane is provided from Finland.
