H2&e’s Solutions

Solution 1 – Life Cycle Analysis (Professional Services)
Corporate Energy Efficiency & Lowering Greenhouse Gas Emissions

  • Corporate Energy Efficiency & Lowering Greenhouse Gas Emissions.
  • LCA is a systematic set of procedures for compiling and examining the inputs and outputs of materials and energy and the associated environmental impacts directly attributable to the functioning of a product or service system throughout its life cycle.
  • LCA is discussed as an accepted way to characterise and report best practice improvements for GreenHouse Gas Emissions (GHGE) and waste- management improvements, as the two areas are inherently interrelated for many projects.
  • LCA is part of the process validation system. For H2 it provides information pertaining to the feedstock for their e-Pyro® [3] process enabling H2 to design a robust operational system with guaranteed outputs.
  • H2 adheres to an international ISO standard 14000 & or GREET [1] to carry out this work.

Solution 2 
Waste collection to Repurposing Site

A strategic alliance has been formed with the WasteCo group to provide solutions for the collection & transportation of waste & recyclables in both metropolitan & rural areas, back to the e-Pyro® [3] processing sites.

Solution 3 – Repurposing Waste into Sustainable Clean Energy
H2 provides a complete integrated “End to End” solution comprising two parts:

Part 1. 
The business solution which is broken into 5 parts

  1. Evaluating customer’s efficiencies & energy usage,using LCA & GHGE.
  2. Organising long term supply contracts of organic carbon-based feedstock.
  3. Logistics arm (WasteCo) that collects & transports waste to 
    e-Pyro® [3] processing plant.
  4. Processing the feedstock via an electric e-Pyro® [3]  plant into value added products.
  5. Negotiating long-term offtake contracts to sell  these outputs.

Part 2.
 The “Machine driven” process comprises 3 sections

  1. Preparing the feedstock ready to be processed by the 
    e-Pyro® [3] plant.
  2. Typically, this will require a chipping machine to reduce the feedstock to 20mm3 pieces.
  3. Potentially drying to reduce the moisture content to below 10%.
  4. Final sorting to remove any remaining stones, glass or metal.

The fully processed feedstock is fed into the e-Pyro® [3] plant which thermochemically breaks the feedstock down into its constituent components.

Output processing:

  1. Filtering the syngas into pure hydrogen & methane.
  2. Refining the light-weight oils into such products as renewable diesel, or plastic precursors.
  3. Filtering any contaminants out of the bio-char.

Solution 4 – Green Hydrogen & Electricity Production

Hydrogen production from renewable green resources, that do not use either fossil fuel, or natural gas.

Hydrogen: an opportunity to reduce CO2 emissions in transportation & electricity generation.

Hydrogen offers the path to a sustainable, carbon neutral or even carbon-free age of mobility in both the short and long term.

Generating green hydrogen from waste to support the roll out of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles & stationary power generation platforms.

It should also be noted that the requirement for decarbonisation of energy goes well beyond the transport sector, which comprises only a third of global CO2 emissions [2].
