Clean Hydrogen from Plastic Waste

May 12, 2020
A Pangea SI Expert

A Pangea SI Expert shares their experience from visiting a plant where clean hydrogen is being produced from plastic waste.

Innovative companies such as Powerhouse and Waste2tricity have utilised technology that results in the production of clean hydrogen gas from plastic waste, possibly helping solve crucial waste management issue.

The clean hydrogen gas, which can be used as a fuel for both transport and commercial uses, is derived from an incineration process that uses plastic waste as “feedstock”.

The waste to energy demonstrator unit processes plastic (including problematic “black” plastic) by graded incineration at very high temperatures, resulting in conversion into syngas. Hydrogen suitable for use as a fuel for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) can then be easily extracted. Storage of this is relatively straightforward with the use of commercially available canisters.

“With the regulations regarding landfill tax becoming more stringent as well as air quality and recycling targets becoming more ambitious, technology like this has the potential to solve real-world issues.”
