Hydrogen Production from Plastic Waste

Technology / Service Summary

Using plastic waste to produce hydrogen, which is increasingly in demand as a low-carbon fuel, to provide a locally produced, locally consumed decarbonization solution.


- To prevent plastic pollution by advanced utilization of plastic waste.
- To produce low carbon hydrogen with local pr+O65oduction and local consumption model.


- By using incinerated waste plastic, it is possible to produce low-carbon hydrogen without the consumption of fossil resources and the emission of carbon dioxide associated with hydrogen production.
- JGC provides license and facility of fully commercialized plastic waste gasification technology EUP which has long term commercial operating track record.


- This technology, which does not require a large transportation infrastructure and can produce hydrogen on a small and medium scale, is considered to be particularly promising in satisfying the balance between supply and demand in the early stages of establishment of a hydrogen society.
- By using domestic plastic waste, it is possible to secure a hydrogen source, which contributes to energy security.
