Startup licenses ORNL technology for converting organic waste to hydrogen

Green Car Congress

The technologies work as a system that converts organic waste into renewable hydrogen gas for use as a biofuel. The system combines biology and electrochemistry to degrade organic waste—such as plant biomass or food waste—to produce hydrogen.

SGH2 building largest green hydrogen production facility in California; gasification of waste into H2

Green Car Congress

The plant will feature SGH2’s technology, which will gasify recycled mixed paper waste to produce green hydrogen that reduces carbon emissions by two to three times more than green hydrogen produced using electrolysis and renewable energy, and is five to seven times cheaper. The facility will process 42,000 tons of recycled waste annually.

MIT/Stanford team develops battery technology for the conversion of low-grade waste heat to power; TREC

Green Car Congress

Researchers at MIT and Stanford University have developed new battery technology for the conversion of low-temperature waste heat into electricity in cases where temperature differences are less than 100 degrees Celsius. These features lead to a high heat-to-electricity energy conversion efficiency of 5.7% —Gang Chen.
