H2-Industries and Madayn sign MoU to build waste-to-hydrogen plant in Oman

WCN Editorial Team 22 Apr 2022 MIDDLE EAST ENERGY & UTILITIES

US-based H2-Industries has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Madayn, Oman’s Public Establishment for Industrial Estates, to build a waste-to-hydrogen plant in the Middle Eastern country.

This $1.4bn facility will be constructed on a 200,000m2 coastal site.

The project involves photovoltaic (PV) solar power installation with base-load capacity.

The facility, which will be powered by a 300MW photovoltaic plant with a battery storage capacity of 70MW, will have an initial capacity to convert up to one million tonnes of solid waste every year.

This capacity can increase to four million tonnes.

The waste is sourced from waste management operators and mined from current landfills.

Using solar energy, H2-Industries plans to use its liquid organic hydrogen carrier technology to transform waste into green hydrogen.

The export value of hydrogen and carbon dioxide produced in the country is estimated to be worth $268m a year.

As soon as the pre-development and permitting phase finish, the facility will begin generating hydrogen in around 30 months.

H2-Industries executive chairman Michael Stusch was quoted by Zawya as saying that the project will “make a substantial contribution to the country’s waste management strategy.”

Oman produces around 1.9 million tonnes of solid waste annually.

Earlier this year, the company secured preliminary approval from Egypt’s General Authority for Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone) to build a waste to hydrogen plant at East Port-Said.
