Hydrogen projects

Project start date : 2016

Production of biohydrogen through waste and wastewater from the agrifood industry using a waste-to-power process. This wastewater is not recycled, although it contains organic matter and minerals that allow bacteria to develop and release hydrogen. The process produces no waste as the fermentation musts can be converted into biochar, which can then be used as an organic soil improver.

Progress of the project

  1. Prototyping phase (feasibility, design)
  2. Industrialization phase
  3. Series production/operation phase
