Abstract
Since there are multiple influencing factors and lack of evaluation standards for the construction of hydrogen production and hydrogenation station in China, this paper establishes the suitability evaluation index system of hydrogen production and hydrogenation station from four aspects of technology, economy, environment and safety. Combined with actual conditions, this paper uses Analytic Hierarch Process (AHP) and Fuzzy Comprehensive evaluation to evaluate water electrolysis hydrogen and hydrogenation production station and natural gas reformation hydrogen production and hydrogenation station. The results show that hydrogen producing by water electrolysis is more efficient than natural gas reformation in hydrogen production and hydrogenation station, and it should be choose firstly. Furthermore, natural gas reformation hydrogen producing is inferior in technology, environment and safety, but it is superior to water electrolysis hydrogen producing in economy. In the future, we can strengthen development of the hydrogen production from renewable energy sources, so as to enhance the economic benefit of that by water electrolysis. In addition, we can also adopt two ways of hydrogen production in hydrogen production and hydrogenation station to achieve favorable integrative benefits.
