PINEDALE, Wyo., August 24, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Raven SR Inc. (SR Raven), a renewable fuels company, today announced it is working with Republic Services Inc. (NYSE: RSG) to convert organic waste to green hydrogen at a Richmond, California.
Raven SR will initially process up to 99.9 tonnes of organic waste per day at Republic Services’ West Contra Costa landfill and will produce up to 2,000 metric tonnes per year of renewable hydrogen as well as electricity for its facilities. operations. Raven SR’s Patented Steam / CO2 The reformation process allows it to be one of the only non-combustion and waste-to-hydrogen processes in the world. Additionally, Raven SR’s goal is to generate as much of its own electricity on site to reduce the load on the grid.
The agreement will help move towards California target to reduce organic waste emissions as part of the state’s Short-Lived Climate Pollutant Reduction Strategy (SLCP), while producing emission-free hydrogen fuel for passenger vehicles and vehicles. heavy vehicles.
“Republic Services gives us a base to produce green hydrogen for commercial purposes in the transport sector in Northern California. By putting this system online under very strict environmental regulatory controls, we will demonstrate that we can convert waste anywhere, ”said Matt Murdock, CEO of Raven SR. “We are delighted to be working in the city of Richmond supply green hydrogen with the aim of improving air quality as well. “
Republic Services is involved in 75 renewable energy projects across the country. This project directly supports the company’s long-term sustainability goal of increasing recovery and circularity of key materials by 40% by 2030.
“We are delighted with this innovative partnership with Raven SR and the opportunity to produce green hydrogen from organic waste,” said Pete keller, Republic Services vice president of recycling and sustainability. “This project not only creates additional clean energy resources in the region, but also allows us to help customers achieve their sustainability goals. We believe it is imperative to achieve greater circularity with the materials we handle to help preserve the environment today and for future generations. ”
The deal with Republic Services comes after Raven SR recently selected POWER Engineers to complete final engineering and design and Stellar J to manufacture its first commercial renewable fuel production facilities for the Republic site and another Northern California landfill which will be announced in the near future.
Raven SR’s first commercial systems will divert a mixture of green waste and food waste from the landfill, reducing methane emissions and have negative carbon intensity generating a California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credit for gas stations.
Unlike competing technologies such as gasification or incineration, the Raven SR process involves no combustion, as previously confirmed by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control, avoiding the creation of pollutants and toxic particles. The Raven SR Steam / CO2 The reforming process also presents a valid alternative to the electrolytic conversion of waste rather than precious and limited water resources for the production of green hydrogen.
