OMNI CT Brings First-of-Its-Kind Waste to Hydrogen Product to Market in the Fight Against Climate Change

Share

Today, OMNI Conversion Technologies Inc. (OMNI CT) announced the first sale of its unprecedented waste to hydrogen product. The Larsen and Lam Climate Initiative, a foundation backed by philanthropists Chris Larsen and Lyna Lam, has committed $35 million to bring this ground-breaking technology to production in the fight against climate change. The first commercial plant in production from OMNI CT will use unsorted non-recyclable Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), which is currently disposed of in landfills, to produce negative carbon hydrogen in California.

New technologies are essential in the fight against climate change. While low-cost solar electricity was a dream only a decade ago, its impact today is far-reaching. The Larsen and Lam Climate Initiative investment will accelerate the global adoption of OMNI CT technology.

”Low or zero CO2 fuels are critical to achieving a decarbonized economy. OMNI CT has created a first-of-its-kind product that can have a global and immediate impact. This is why we are excited to work with their team to bring this technology to market in California as our first project from the Larsen and Lam Climate Initiative,” said Chris Larsen, Co-Founder of the Larsen and Lam Climate Initiative and Ripple.

“With surging global interest in hydrogen and biofuels and as the urgency grows around the climate change crisis, it’s an opportune time to be launching our product into the fight against climate change. We’ve spent 15 years and $400 million perfecting it. We’re thrilled to be working with the Larsen and Lam Climate Initiative who not only understand but share our vision for the future,” said Rod Bryden, CEO of OMNI CT.

Professor Daniel Kammen, Chair of the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California, Berkeley, commented that zero-carbon fuels are a critical part of the aggressive path to a clean economy. As California looks to build a vibrant zero-carbon economy, the Omni technology is an exciting addition that will solve multiple problems at once.

The Omni 200™ GPRS™ waste to hydrogen product can produce around 5000 tonnes of negative carbon hydrogen each year, from 200 tonnes a day of unsorted non-recyclable garbage. Hydrogen is produced in the city where it is needed and the garbage is diverted from landfill to OMNI CT and eliminated with no air emissions and nothing left for disposal. Energy in the garbage replaces electricity otherwise required to make green hydrogen. The circular hydrogen produced could operate some 550 city buses running on hydrogen at a cost less than the current cost of using gasoline or diesel.

The purchase was funded and signed on April 21, 2021 with the goal of being in production in California converting Municipal Solid Waste to hydrogen by the end of 2023.

About OMNI CT

OMNI CT is an Ottawa Canada-based company that has developed a proprietary technology by designing, building, testing, and operating a complete commercial demonstration plant from 2007-2014. The patented process converts any solid energetic material into OmniSyngas™ to produce clean green hydrogen, biofuels, synthetic natural gas, chemicals or electricity for the circular economy.

OMNI CT’s robust efficient OMNI200™ GPRS™ is providing a unique solution to achieving decarbonization targets.

The OMNI200™ Gasification & Plasma Refining System (GPRS™)

The OMNI200™ GPRS™ unit is proven at industrial scale. It is a complete integrated system, delivered to site in large modules, rather than stick-built. It receives and converts at a rate of 200 tonnes per day (67,000 tonnes per year) a wide variety and mix of energetic wastes into clean consistent syngas with a predictable heating value and composition. The H2/CO ratio can be tailored to the final application. Multiple units can be readily combined for larger plants.

OmniSyngas™

OmniSyngas™ is a precursor to the production of hydrogen and biofuels. Municipal solid waste has more than 50% biogenic content. This will produce green fuels and avoid methane from sending waste to landfills. Since methane has 25x the GHG effect of CO2, these fuels can be produced with a negative carbon footprint. Further reduction is possible by capturing and storing the CO2 in the syngas.

Tigo Energy Demonstrates Optimization to Installers in Brazil with Stark Renováveis Installation7.5.2021 03:14:00 EEST | Press release

Tigo Energy, Inc., the solar industry’s leading Flex MLPE (Module Level Power Electronics) supplier, announced today that Stark Renováveis has used the Tigo TS4-A-O to mitigate energy lost due to shade on their corporate headquarters in São José do Rio Preto, Brazil. Their confidence in Tigo’s solution drove the selection of the products for their own use. The Tigo solution gives installers and commercial system owners the freedom to choose their preferred inverters and panels along with the right features for optimized, monitored and PV safe systems. The Stark Renováveis team chose a rooftop PV system with 405 Wp modules organized in multiple strings and using GoodWeTM grid-tied inverters. The optimum placement of the modules was on a roof bordering a large construction wall which would ordinarily lead to shade and a degradation of the output. To mitigate the problem of energy lost due to shade, Tigo TS4-A-O optimizers were deployed to ensure the best possible system performance. "As
