Collaborators in a global research initiative to unlock the potential value of carbonaceous wastes and contribute to a greener future met for the first time earlier this year.

HyWay – Hydrogen production from waste – is an international multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral integrated research and innovation programme that will promote collaborations and knowledge transfer among highly qualified individuals in the field of thermo-chemical conversion of waste materials for hydrogen production.

It comprises of an integrated four-year program of knowledge transfer and network among 15 partners, seven partner beneficiaries and eight associated partners from across the UK, Europe, China, Japan, Australia and Malaysia.

The University of Aberdeen is one of three UK universities involved in the project which seeks to establish long-term consolidated research collaborations between the participating institutions with complementary expertise and knowledge to design and develop carbon-neutral, scalable and socially acceptable pathways to sort and convert waste to hydrogen-rich syngas as part of next generation sustainable fuels.

Researchers (Dr Yeshui Zhang, Prof. Jos Derksen, Dr Wenbo Zhan, Prof. Davide Dionisi, Dr Yingfang Zhou and Dr Panagiotis Kechagiopoulos) in the School of Engineering will work with all partners on a range of experiments, simulation and modelling to analyse the economic case for commercialising and scaling up to boost sustainability and the circular economy.

“The HyWay project supports commitments to leave the environment in a better condition for the next generation, and in particular an “ambition” of zero avoidable waste by 2050 and UN Sustainable Development Goals. It will contribute towards creating a sustainable society by recovering waste through thermo-chemical conversion to hydrogen-rich syngas, which can directly feed into world-leading technologies,” said Dr Yeshui Zhang (PI).

HyWay is co-funded by the European Union through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Staff Exchanges Action and UKRI Guarantee Scheme.
