Scottish University receives UK Government funding for waste-to-hydrogen research

The University of Aberdeen’s School of Engineering has been awarded £220,000 ($265,987) in funding from the UK Government’s Hydrogen BECCS Innovation Programme to create a new process to obtain hydrogen from organic waste.

H2 View understands the funding from the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) will enable research that could see organic matter in food waste, manure, wastewater, and other biodegradable wastes converted into hydrogen.

Set to use a sequence of biological, thermochemical, and electrochemical stages to maximise the conversion to hydrogen, the project will consist of four main reaction stages: dark fermentation, anaerobic digestion, plasma reforming, and steam gasification.
