Petronas partners with Scottish University to develop biomass-to-hydrogen technologies

Petronas has revealed it has entered into a research partnership with the Scottish-based Heriot-Watt University to jointly develop technologies for cost-effective hydrogen production from biomass waste.

The £1m ($1.1m) research project sets out to advance techniques to use thermochemical reactions to produce hydrogen from biomass and other waste materials, with intentions of exploring solutions to address scalability and storage.

H2 View understands the researchers intend to initially focus on using the estimated four million tonnes of waste and by-products created by UK distilleries, and the approximate 127 million tonnes of agricultural waste generated in Malaysia for hydrogen produce.
