Recovering Hydrogen from Biowaste and Energy Storage
Robin Z. Parker, Chairman and CEO, Chemergy, Inc.
Organic biosolids contain an unused remnant of stored solar energy that HyBrTec recovers as H2, CO2, thermal energy and inorganic ash. Feedstocks include: sewage, manure, wood & agricultural residuals, paper, plastics and municipal solid waste. Under Florida’s program to mitigate algae growth in Florida's waters from landfilling sewage sludge, Chemergy teamed with Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department and submitted a $2.3 million proposal to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) to demonstrate the recovery of H2 from sewage sludge. The pilot plant program was approved for funding in January 2020.
