Raven SR and H3 Dynamics agree MoU on waste-to-hydrogen systems for airports


Raven SR and H3 Dynamics have signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly deliver waste-to-hydrogen energy systems for use at airports.

H3 Dynamics will provide hydrogen power systems to replace conventional fuel and other energy sources at airports, largely in Asia, Europe and the US. Whilst Raven SR will provide renewable hydrogen production facilities to supply airports.

Matt Murdock, CEO of Raven SR sees tremendous demand to decarbonise the aviation sector with renewable fuels, including on the ground. “By collaborating with H3 Dynamics, we can reach a broader network among airports and equipment, including a variety of aircraft operations, to install waste-to-energy hubs where there is an acute need to curb emissions,” he said.

Raven uses a non-combustion thermal, chemical reductive process to convert organic waste and landfill gas to hydrogen and Fischer-Tropsch synthetic fuels. It also does not require fresh water as a feedstock unlike other hydrogen production technologies such as electrolysis. The firm also tries to generate much of its own power onsite to reduce reliance on the power grid.

Taras Wankewycz, CEO of H3 Dynamics, said: “Raven SR provides a way to convert a variety of waste feedstocks into clean hydrogen, with a process that uses less energy than other renewable hydrogen production. Raven SR’s advanced waste-to-hydrogen technology offers a less intensive, more sustainable means of locally producing fuel.”

H3 will work with its technology and manufacturing partners to configure hydrogen power system componentry to meet certification requirements for the airport environment. 

“H3 Dynamics will deploy decarbonisation use cases that have a more immediate impact, so that the infrastructure built today can also welcome hydrogen aircraft in the future,” added Wankewycz.
