The partnership will establish a manufacturing base in India for Ways2H’s thermochemical technology that converts waste to carbon-negative renewable hydrogen and permanently sequestrates CO2.
Ways2H, based in Long Beach, CA, and h2e Power Systems, located near Pune, India, signed a framework agreement in New Delhi at the Net Zero Summit. The partnership will establish a manufacturing base in India for Ways2H’s thermochemical technology that converts waste to carbon-negative renewable hydrogen and permanently sequestrates CO2. The systems will then be deployed throughout the country, each with a processing capacity of up to 100 tons/day, creating hundreds of green jobs and developing decentralized waste-to-hydrogen hubs.
"We are delighted to initiate this partnership,” said Jean-Louis Kindler, CEO of Ways2H. “It strongly emphasizes the role of India as a leading country in the fight against climate change and for sustainability. In parallel with our projects in the United States and Europe, it demonstrates that waste-to-hydrogen solutions are a genuine global solution to address our worldwide waste management crisis and a faster pathway to not only reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions but actually removing CO2—the primary cause of the climate crisis that has already begun—from the atmosphere."
h2e and Ways2H are completing a detailed project report, which is the first phase for establishing the plant near Pune, which will process a maximum of 10 tons of waste and produce approximately 1 ton of fuel-cell grade carbon-negative hydrogen per day. h2e plans to integrate its solid oxide fuel cell system with the plant to make it an integrated waste-and-energy generation solution.
“This partnership is a testimony to our commitment to making India a global hub for green hydrogen technologies,” said Siddharth R Mayur, Founder and Managing Director of h2e Power. “The association with Ways2H completes our value chain, and we can now offer all the green hydrogen technologies from electrolyzers to waste under one umbrella. We will set up a pilot plant near Pune to produce and sell Green Hydrogen from Waste collected in Pune city. The thermochemical waste processing technology developed by Ways2H will bring a revolution in distributed waste management and help us produce carbon-negative green hydrogen at scale."
