Sewage water must be cleaned in order to protect rivers and oceans. However, both chemicals and energy are required to do so. Organic materials contained in sewage water provide a source of energy for microorganisms, and a source of inspiration.
An innovative solution aimed at sewage water producers, especially those in the food and drinks industry, transforms waste into hydrogen. It does so via a dedicated bacterium that is capable of growing in sewage water and quickly producing high-quality hydrogen, cleaning the water. No longer a waste product, sewage water can be a source of local, clean, renewable and carbon-free energy.
• A solution capable of creating local hydrogen ecosystems based on a circular economy.
• Lower natural gas consumption for processing and transportation of raw materials (milk, cereals, etc).
• At least 60% reduction of energy required to clean sewage water.
• At least 1,5 litres of hydrogen produced per litre of sewage water.
• Hydrogen produced at a competitive price compared to fossil fuel energy (less than 5€/kg).
• Provides a green image and brand for companies.
