Hydrogen is one of a handful of new, low carbon solutions that will be critical for developed countries’ transition to net zero. As part of a deeply decarbonised, deeply renewable energy system, low carbon hydrogen produced from waste could be a versatile replacement for high-carbon fuels used today – helping to bring down emissions in vital industrial sectors and providing flexible energy for power, heat and transport. If coupled with carbon capture and storage (CCS), hydrogen from waste also represents the most effective and practical carbon sequestration solution that will be needed to offset emissions from sectors which are difficult to be decarbonised. This session will discuss the challenges and opportunities related to the deployment of waste to hydrogen technologies.
