FullTank takes up its role as a fuel supplier for the DENS hydrozine generator

DENS, developer of the Hydrozine generator and Fulltank, the fuel supplier to the construction site, will soon start a pilot project in which the Hydrozine generator will be tested in the field. Naturally, the supply and quality of the Hydrozine provided by FullTank is essential for a succesfull pilot. Hydrozine is the hydrogen carrier and is also called formic acid.

We are in the midst of the energy transition in which the sustainability goals are substantial. We will only achieve these objectives if we work together with the latest innovative technologies. In addition to the reduction of CO2, other harmful emissions will also have to be reduced, such as the nitrogen problem and the health risks associated with harmful emissions of particulate matter.

“The mission of  DENS to drastically accelerate the energy transition, is in line with our vision,”says Hans de Baat, owner of FullTank. With the installation of 6 heat pumps and 300 solar panels on the roof, a start has been made on making the AdBlue factory and the FullTank building more sustainable, so that they will be completely self-sufficient. In addition, as an energy supplier in The Netherlands and Belgium, FullTank has an important role in supplying fuels on location at the lowest environmental impact. In the context of electrification of the construction equipment and the associated exchange of battery packs, Fulltank is taking the step to charge the machines on location with zero emissions using the DENS generator. The collaboration then speaks for itself.

DENS has developed a generator that produces electricity based on the hydrogen carrier hydrozine. Hydrozine makes it possible to store and transport large quantities of hydrogen. The use is very similar to that of conventional fuels such as diesel or petrol, so it fits well within the existing infrastructure that FullTank already has. The Hydrozine is converted back into hydrogen in the generator and then into electricity by a conventional fuel cell. In this way, hydrogen can be used as a sustainable energy source in a user-friendly and safe way.

“In this pilot, FullTank will provide the distribution of Hydrozine as a fuel supplier and act as a supply chain specialist. Besides taking care of the distribution, with our FullTank sensor we have insight into current situations such as stocks, forecasts and we can make adjustments if necessary, so that the customer always has a full tank. “The knowledge and experience of FullTank will provide DENS the possibility to be able to use the generator directly at any desired location, including the delivery of Hydrozine.
