Many of our landfills are reaching full capacity at an alarming rate. We as a nation produce three times the municipal waste per capita than the global average. With the concern of available landfill space being the primary issue at hand, this calls for innovative solutions to revolutionize our disposal methods.
Meanwhile, we are embarking on a massive infrastructure development to produce and distribute clean energy sources for transportation. Hydrogen is one of these sources.
Ways2H in this webinar will introduce its groundbreaking technology to convert municipal waste into hydrogen gas.
Ways2H uses a thermochemical process to convert solid municipal waste into clean, useful hydrogen to power heavy industry and transportation. High temperature cracking destroys toxins and prevents their release into the air or water table. The waste stream can include all harmful pharmaceuticals, plastics, sludge, biomass and other forms of municipal waste.
The U.S. is the leading nation in terms of solid waste output to per capita ratio.
How this benefits the environment:
> Elimination of over 80% landfill-bound trash
> The risk of toxic chemicals entering the groundwater is eliminated
> Destroys most potentially hazardous elements in the process
> Additional production of hydrogen for clean mobility
> Leaves renewable electricity available for traditional grid needs
> Produced in a self-sustainable cycle
The Hydrogen Promise:
> Massive reduction of waste going to landfills
> Displaces CO2 emissions by providing alternative clean fuel
> Hydrogen is carbon-neutral; it adds no harmful emissions
> Particularly suitable for heavy duty clean mobility applications where batteries are challenged
