A new method which uses biosolids to produce hydrogen from wastewater has been developed by researchers at RMIT University.
The technology uses a special material derived from biosolids to spark chemical reactions for producing hydrogen from biogas, meaning all materials needed could be sourced on-site at a wastewater treatment plant, without the need for expensive catalysts.
RMIT University’s method also traps the carbon found in biosolids and biogas, which the researchers believe could in future enable a near zero emission wastewater sector.
Lead Researcher and Associate Professor, Kalpit Shah, said, “Our alternative technology offers a sustainable, cost-effective, renewable and efficient approach to hydrogen production.”
