Raven SR waste-to-hydrogen plant in California to be powered by INNIO Jenbacher’s Prepared-for-H2 engines


Raven SR plans to make use of INNIO’s Jenbacher engines [60 Hz] with a “Prepared for H2” possibility to provide renewable power. The power system will energy and warmth Raven SR’s S-Sequence hydrogen manufacturing facility at a sanitary landfill in Richmond, California. (Earlier submit.)


On the website, landfill fuel (LFG) would be the major gasoline to supply energy for the non-combustion course of that converts waste to hydrogen. The hydrogen product can be resold to energy gasoline cells in heavy-duty vehicles. The Raven SR course of (earlier submit) may even present a residual gasoline containing residual inexperienced hydrogen from the focus course of to complement the LFG to gasoline the Jenbacher Prepared-for-H2 engines to generate renewable energy in a steady loop.

The collaboration with Raven’s expertise affords a powerful renewable hydrogen different to electrolysis, utilizing much less electrical energy and no want for recent water. INNIO’s Jenbacher engines will permit the Raven facility to generate a major quantity of their very own electrical energy, lowering demand on California’s electrical grid.

This undertaking produces onsite renewable hydrogen from waste, makes use of a mix of hydrogen to generate power to energy operations, and gives renewable hydrogen for the transportation business. It is a mannequin instance of how innovation can allow sector coupling which can be crucial on the worldwide path to internet zero.

—Dr. Olaf Berlien, President and CEO of INNIO

The Jenbacher engines are an important factor for us to understand our goal of manufacturing renewable hydrogen with our non-combustion Steam/CO2 Reformation Course of, unbiased of the grid. Raven’s success within the growing power and electrical energy disaster requires that we generate autonomous energy onsite.

—Matt Murdock, CEO of Raven SR

As of 2022, Jenbacher fuel engines will be provided with a Prepared for H2 possibility, able to working with as much as 25% (quantity) of hydrogen within the pipeline fuel. As hydrogen turns into extra available sooner or later, all Prepared for H2 new models and a lot of the at the moment put in Jenbacher pure gas-fueled engines will be transformed to function on 100% hydrogen. The kind 4 engines are already obtainable at present to run on 100% hydrogen.


Jennbacher Kind 4 Prepared for H2

Raven SR plans to convey its S-Sequence on-line within the first quarter of 2023 on the Republic Providers West Contra Costa Sanitary Landfill in Richmond, California. This undertaking will initially course of as much as 99.9 tons of natural waste per day and produce as much as 2,000 metric tons per 12 months of hydrogen.

INNIO is headquartered in Jenbach (Austria), with different major operations in Waukesha (Wisconsin) and Welland (Ontario, Canada).
