The Atlantic region is characterised by low investment in R&D+I, and the low competitiveness of SMEs. The integration of hydrogen generation technologies through renewable energy sources and its recovery from industrial waste streams with safe and efficient storage systems and innovative technology, using hydrogen as a fuel with zero emissions in the maritime transport and industrial sector will increase the energy and resource efficiency of the Atlantic Area.
The Hylantic project addresses global energy issues and focuses on the challenge of ensuring a sustainable and efficient energy supply with low carbon emissions. This project aims to establish an excellent transnational network to advance the R&D, implementation and commercialisation of hydrogen as an energy vector for future power generation in the Atlantic Area, thus providing energy efficient solutions to strategic sectors in the Atlantic region such as transport, marine, ultra-low energy building supply, and/or portable and stationary devices. Through collaborative research and synergies within the team, Hylantic will address research and innovation for smart and sustainable growth covering sectoral and regional needs.
The project scope includes R&D of new materials and innovative technologies, combined with advanced simulation and optimisation techniques for hydrogen generation through renewable energy and local waste streams, thus delivering environmentally friendly outputs to provide energy efficient solutions to strategic sectors in the Atlantic region and benefit regional industries, generating positive socio-economic impact.
