H2R® Product

Decarbonise your gas turbine with the Hydrogen Renewal

H2R® Burner

H2R® Burner

Ultra low NOx & zero CO₂

The H2R® Burner can convert gas turbines to zero carbon emission systems with Ultra Low NOx emissions. It operates with any proportion of Natural gas and Hydrogen (in Dry Low NOx Dual Fuel mode).

The H2R® Burner can be adopted immediately as a solution to reduce NOx and CO₂ at a later stage once hydrogen becomes more readily available.

Business & Environment

Benefits of the H2R®


The H2R® is the hydrogen fuelled renewal retrofit burner for gas turbines operating currently on natural gas. The H2R® burner converts gas turbines to zero carbon emission systems when operated with 100% hydrogen.

NOx & CO₂ reduction

The H2R® eliminates greenhouse gases at the source. It converts natural gas fuelled gas turbines to operate 100% on H₂ (wherever available). The product of hydrogen combustion is water vapour with no carbon dioxide emissions.

The H2R® operates with 100% Natural Gas right through to 100% Hydrogen (dual fuel), and in any proportion of either fuel with Ultra Low NOx emissions.

It makes it suitable for immediate application for NOx reduction and compliance, and also for decarbonisation as Hydrogen becomes increasingly available.


Tested and validated independently, it complies with International Emissions regulations Worldwide, today and well into the future (~ 2050).


Modular and scalable by design, the burner can be adapted to gas turbines whether fitted with silo, annular, can-annular or can type combustion chambers.

The durability of the H2R® meets current industry standards; and can be installed within a scheduled overhaul period.

Gas turbine owners benefits

  • Convert your gas turbine using our H2R® system to eliminate CO₂ at the source.
  • H2R® can be installed immediately on gas turbines which urgently require very Low NOx capability.
  • The H2R® runs on natural gas or hydrogen in any blend, delivering very Low NOx with both fuels.
  • It reduces the CO₂ tax burden as hydrogen becomes increasingly available.
  • It can be installed within the normal overhaul period & the durability is to industry standards.

Environment benefits

  • According to the Paris Climate Agreement, Europe has committed to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.
  • Deployment of the H2R® on the gas turbines can reduce the current CO₂ emissions by 30%, considering only Europe.
  • Improvement of the air quality via Nitrous Oxides (NOx) reduction and greenhouse gas reduction.
  • Conservation of the Earths natural resources.
  • Reduction in global warming and regenerate the Earths bio-diversity.

H2R® Burner

Impact in Europe

Currently, gas turbines in Europe produce over 1150 MT CO₂/year or ~30% of all the fossils fuelled plants emissions. In addition to the dramatical influence on the environment, carbon pollution leads to socio-economic costs. A gas turbine operator in Europe could to pay as carbon taxes up to 112 euro per tonne, depending on the country.

Considering gas turbines only in the European countries with green/blue hydrogen production and distribution networks, we see a significant decarbonisation potential of over 30% of the CO₂ produced today once our H2R® is widely adopted.


of CO₂ in Europe can be eliminated

H2R® Burner

Global opportunity

Massive opportunity to reduce global CO₂ emissions by 3 Gigatons p.a. resulting from ~1’000’000 MW of power being produced by gas power plants, where one 100 MW plant alone emits ~280’000 T CO₂ p.a. This number is equal to entire CO₂ power generated output of the EU.

Our H2R® Burner provides the tech to eliminate the emissions in each of them today, saving power plants billions in emission taxes every year.

Megatons of CO₂ per year can be eliminated

H2R® Burner Applications

15 MW gas turbine

15 MW gas turbine

We customised our Ultra Low NOx H2R® burner for a 15MW gas turbine. NOx is expected to be reduced from 45ppm to less than 8ppm with Natural Gas. With pure Hydrogen the CO₂ output will be zero, a reduction of over 85 thousand Tons/year.
