Renewable Hydrogen from “Organic Waste”: Technical Challenges and Opportunities

15 Jun 2022
Hydrogen Production, Storage, and Infrastructure Development
Burying organic waste in landfills creates a long-term obligation for operators and does not optimize its economic value nor does it minimize the environmental impact. Thermochemical gasification of organic waste to produce hydrogen is one of the emerging opportunities for green waste valorization that benefits both landfill operators and the environment.
This talk will:
•    Summarize technical approaches available for gasification of biomass (biomass and green waste) to produce “green hydrogen.”
•    Outline the various technical challenges and opportunities for innovation.
•    Conclude with quantifying the opportunity for utilizing green waste for hydrogen.
