South Australia takes another step towards upcycling waste to manufacture clean hydrogen 

Waste to Hydrogen project partners City of West Torrens, Solo Resource Recovery (Solo), Greenhill Energy and Peats Soil and Garden Supplies (Peats), in collaboration with the University of Adelaide, will embark on the next phase of their journey to divert waste from going to landfill in South Australia, and have agreed to work together to establish a demonstration pilot program.

The pilot scale demonstration project includes pre-processing of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) at the Adelaide Waste & Recycling Centre (AWRC) located at North Plympton, followed by the processing of material to produce syngas using the University of Adelaide’s existing gasification facilities, located at its Thebarton campus.

Greenhill Energy Executive Managing Director Nicholas Mumford said this demonstration pilot program is the next logical step in the partnership formed in 2021 to investigate the technical, commercial and economic potential of manufacturing clean hydrogen from household waste which would otherwise be destined for landfill.

“This partnership was formed with a broader vision to build an industrial scale facility to convert landfill waste into high value products, such as clean hydrogen. This process will effectively mature Australia’s circular economy and contribute to considerable emission reductions in Australia’s waste sector.  We’re excited to take another leap forward with this demonstration pilot program that will help inform the large scale upcycling of waste into low-cost clean hydrogen and high-value industrial products,” said Nicholas.
