Ways2H Hydrogen Solution

A thermochemical process converting waste streams into clean hydrogen without incineration

Identification

Ways2H aims to solve two problems: demand for renewable hydrogen to replace fossil fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions for transportation and power generation, and the need for sustainable and affordable waste disposal. This solution seeks to improve the global environment by eliminating waste while producing carbon-negative renewable hydrogen. With 95% of hydrogen fuel currently produced from natural gas or other fossil fuels, the world needs new sources of renewable hydrogen to reach a carbon-negative future. The thermochemical process producing the syngas leaves char as a byproduct, which is virtually pure carbon. The char is collected and used as fuel together with the remaining tail-gas to generate the energy needed for the thermochemical conversion of the waste feedstock. Therefore, the system self-supplies the energy and heat it needs to operate and produce hydrogen and does not require any outside fuel except to start up a new unit for the first time.

The environmental benefits

  • 1 ton waste or biomass feedstock yields 50kg hydrogen
  • One 24 ton/day system provides 1.2 ton hydrogen, the equivalent of an average gasoline stand in terms of number of vehicles serviced
  • Fueling 10% of the U.S. medium and heavy duty truck fleet with hydrogen instead of diesel would reduce emissions by 43.8 Tg CO2e per year.
  • Potential to reduce waste hauling mileage by over 75%
  • Reduction of landfill waste by over 80%
03.

The Financial benefits

  • Renewable hydrogen production cost, around 1EUR/kg, achievable now (This price is available under specific conditions.)
  • Less than 3 years payback time on waste to hydrogen solution with triple profit for waste processors
