The first sale of OMNI Conversion Technologies Inc.’s groundbreaking waste-to-hydrogen product was made.
In the battle against climate change, the Larsen and Lam Climate Initiative, a foundation established by philanthropists Chris Larsen and Lyna Lam, has pledged $35 million to bring this ground-breaking technology to market.
In California, the first commercial plant from OMNI CT would generate negative carbon hydrogen from unsorted non-recyclable municipal solid waste (MSW), which is currently disposed of in landfills.
In the battle against climate change, new developments are critical. Solar energy at a low cost was a pipe dream just a decade ago, but it now has a far-reaching effect. The investment by Larsen and Lam in the Climate Initiative would hasten the global adoption of OMNI CT technology.
From 200 tonnes of unsorted non-recyclable garbage per day, the Omni 200TM GPRSTM waste to hydrogen product will produce about 5000 tonnes of negative carbon hydrogen per year. Hydrogen is generated where it is required in the area, and garbage is diverted from landfills to OMNI CT and eliminated, leaving no air pollution or waste to dispose of.
The energy in garbage substitutes the electricity needed to produce green hydrogen. The circular hydrogen emitted could power 550 city buses at a fraction of the cost of gasoline or diesel.
