In a nutshell

The various scenarios for decarbonizing our society all include the development of hydrogen production and use (up to 4.5 times in the scenarios carried out by ADEME, for example), and electrolysis technology is essential to replace the hydrogen currently produced from fossil gas. By using electricity from renewable sources, "green" hydrogen can be created through electrolysis. The carbon intensity of the hydrogen produced ranges from 0.5 kg to 3.2 kg CO2 per kg of hydrogen depending on the renewable source, compared to 11 kg and 19 kg CO2 per kg of hydrogen, respectively, for grey and brown hydrogen. Shyva combines a patented high-performance electrode that increases production by at least 1.5 times compared to conventional electrodes and offers a high deployment potential thanks to its simple and robust production, use, and maintenance.

Scientific Committee opinion

The hydrogen sector is key in the different transition scenarios, and SHYVA's value proposition, based on the use of electrodes treated on the surface by a biochemical process, appears to be very innovative. The exchanges have enabled us to validate the scientific soundness of both the technical process and the methodology for studying the performance of the solution. By offering a higher yield and flexibility in the quality of the water needed, the innovation opens the way to a democratization of the production of green hydrogen. These performances are to be verified in laboratory tests, and the passage to the industrial scale remains to be demonstrated with all the necessary guarantees of reliability/durability. Obviously, it is good to keep in mind that water electrolysis has an interest if the source of electricity is from decarbonated energies. The impact of the innovation will therefore be directly linked to the origin of the electricity.
