HYDROGENATE is a technology to convert any kind of waste into Renewable Natural Gas (RNG). A combined hydrogenation SOEC reactor with high efficiency.
We have developed a technology that combines the hydrogenation of biomass and waste to renewable natural gas (RNG) with the provision of the necessary hydrogen via electrolysis. In contrast to incineration, HYDROGENATE does not emit any CO2, in contrast to landfilling, no pollutants are released into nature, and in contrast to pyrolysis, a pure end product is produced which can be immediately used as a substitute for costly natural gas or as a renewable raw material: Renewable natural gas (RNG).
HYDROGENATE allows the recovery of nutrients contained in the waste, such as phosphorus, and the decomposition or separation of pollutants. The objective is to treat all kinds of waste with HYDROGENATE, such as industrial and municipal waste, sewage sludge, plastics, or used tires. Whether contaminated or not.
HYDROGENATE is a technology to convert waste to renewable natural gas (RNG). The innovation is the close integration of a modular and scalable hydrogenation reactor with Solid Oxide Electrolysis Cells (SOEC). The integration is achieved under uniform pressure and temperature conditions. The hydrogen is generated inline directly in the reactor so that no intermediate storage is required. The combination of exothermic hydrogenation with endothermic electrolysis is expected to achieve unprecedented efficiencies.
