A Canadian startup is targeting 2025 to begin a low-carbon hydrogen blending pilot with local natural gas utility Gas New Brunswick.

Fredericton, New Brunswick-based Nu:ionic Technologies Inc. said it plans to deploy its proprietary teal hydrogen technology, which combines elements of the more widely known “blue” and “green” production methods. The teal method utilizes microwave catalytic reformer (MCR) technology, using both electricity and natural gas as feedstocks. 

Nu:ionic said it has a memorandum of understanding to produce 2.4 metric tons/day (mt) of hydrogen using an MCR attached to the network of Gas New Brunswick, a distributor owned by the Liberty Utilities Co. arm of Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp.
