Raven SR gets permit for its first organic waste-to-hydrogen bioenergy project

May 24, 2023 |

In California, Raven SR Inc. received unanimous approval of its California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) permit by the Richmond City Council on May 16 for Raven SR’s first organic waste-to-hydrogen bioenergy project, which will be located in Richmond, California. This permit marks a significant step in approving the world’s first Steam/CO2 Reforming hydrogen production facility using diverted waste as a feedstock.

The project is expected to divert up to 99 wet tons of green and food waste per day from Republic Services’ WCCSL into Raven SR’s non-combustion Steam/CO2 Reforming process, producing up to 2,400 metric tons of renewable hydrogen per year. Diversion of the organic waste will help fulfill California’s SB 1383 mandates, and will potentially avoid up to 7,200 metric-tons per year of CO2 emissions from the landfill. The project is expected to produce at least 60% of its own electricity by using methane from the landfill in new state-of-the-art electric generators, further reducing both the current air emissions and the need for grid power for its non-combustion process.
