In an Australian first, plans to produce low-emission hydrogen and graphite from sewage at a wastewater treatment plant have been given the green light.
The Hazer Process Commercial Demonstration Project will see Australian technology company Hazer Group use waste gas (biogas) for its world-leading hydrogen and graphite production process.
The three-year operation at Woodman Point Wastewater Treatment Plant in Munster will produce around 100 tonnes of fuel-grade hydrogen and 380 tonnes of graphite each year, with the potential for expansion.
The technology capitalises on the waste product of biogas – primarily composed of methane and carbon dioxide – which is released during the wastewater treatment process as solid matter (biosolids) breaks down.
