Energy Solution Provider INNIO To Power Raven SR’s Plant With 100% RE

Highlights :

  • INNIO’s Jenbacher engines will allow the Raven facility to generate a significant amount of their own electricity, reducing demand on California’s electrical grid.
  • at the site, landfill gas will be the primary fuel to provide power for the non-combustion process that converts waste to hydrogen.

Leading energy solutions provider INNIO, in collaboration with Raven SR- a US based company that transforms waste to fuels, has announced plans to use Jenbacher engines of INNIO with a “Ready for H2” option to produce renewable energy. The energy system will power and heat Raven SR’s S- Series hydrogen production facility at a sanitary landfill in Richmond, California, the USA.

As per the official statement of INNIO, at the site, landfill gas will be the primary fuel to provide power for the non-combustion process that converts waste to hydrogen. The hydrogen product will be resold to power fuel cells in heavy-duty trucks. The Raven SR process will also provide a residual fuel containing residual green hydrogen from the concentration process to supplement the LFG to fuel the Jenbacher Ready-for-H2 engines of INNIO to generate renewable power in a continuous loop.

INNIO also held that the collaboration with Raven’s technology offers a strong renewable hydrogen alternative to electrolysis, using less electricity and no need for fresh water. INNIO’s Jenbacher engines will allow the Raven facility to generate a significant amount of their own electricity, reducing demand on California’s electrical grid.

Dr. Olaf Berlien, President and CEO of INNIO, said, “This project produces onsite renewable hydrogen from waste, uses a blend of hydrogen to generate energy to power operations, and provides renewable hydrogen for the transportation industry. This is a model example of how innovation can enable sector coupling which will be critical on the global path to net zero.”

“INNIO is able to meet our delivery schedule and provide engines that are compliant with emissions requirements for a blend of CO2, methane and hydrogen,” said Matt Murdock, CEO of Raven SR. “

Matt Murdock, CEO of Raven SR. “To succeed in the energy transition, collaboration among best-in-class engineering around the world is required. We are grateful to work with INNIO on this advanced, self-contained renewable energy design.”

INNIO said that Raven SR plans to bring its S-Series online in the first quarter of 2023 at the Republic Services West Contra Costa Sanitary Landfill in Richmond, California. This project will initially process up to 99.9 tons of organic waste per day and produce up to 2,000 metric tons per year of hydrogen.
