Objective

The WASTE2H2 proposal field of action is hydrogen as a sustainable energy vector and waste valorization in a circular economy approach. Characteristically, Hydrogen can be produced using diverse resources including fossil fuels, such as natural gas and coal, biomass, non-food crops, nuclear energy and renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, geothermal, and hydroelectric power to split water. Hydrogen could be produced from waste biomass by thermal gasification processes followed by clean and purification stages of syngas produced. This area has an enormous potential for society descarbonisation and development of circular economy. This diversity of potential supply sources is the most important reason why hydrogen is such a promising energy carrier.
WASTE2H2 aims to enhancing the scientific and technological capacity of IPPortalegre in clean and purification of thermal gasification syngas in order to produced hydrogen, and at raising staff’s research profile and excellence by twinning with three well established and leading research institutions: Royal Institute of Technology, in Sweden; Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development, in Italy and; Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, in Germany. This will allow mutual learning and knowledge transfer activities, cross-fertilization and networking opportunities and increased opportunities for research collaborations.
The resulting enhanced capabilities and status of IPPortalegre, would in turn contribute to the change of its economic landscape, giving new opportunities for development and job creation, strengthening and enhancing the positioning of Portugal as an important player in applied scientific research in the respective field.
