Clean-Seas India commissions plastic waste-to-hydrogen facility in India
The company plans to optimise hydrogen production from mixed plastic waste and create what it is branding as AquaHtm, a new form of clean hydrogen.
Clean-Seas India (CSI) (a subsidiary of Clean Vision Corporation in India) has commissioned its 1.2 tonne/day waste-plastic pyrolysis plant in Hyderabad, India.
This pilot project was formally announced on March 18, 2022, in a launch ceremony with CSI’s collaboration partners at the Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT).
The CSI technical team works with its technology provider, American Renewable Technology, Inc., to set up the pilot facility in preparation for its commissioning in Hyderabad.
As designed, the pilot facility will be a development platform to produce hydrogen from mixed plastic waste and ultra-low sulphur fuels for sale to the oil and gas industry. The facility will also serve as headquarters for Clean-Seas India, where it will conduct R&D, sales and business development operations. Potential customers and partners will be invited to the pilot facility to witness the technology in action and review all operational history and data.
Venkat Kumar Tangirala, MD of CSI, said, “Key environmental thought leaders throughout India have been waiting to see our facility turn plastic waste into energy, and we are now well-positioned to move this important project forward, not just in India but throughout the region.”
Dan Bates, CEO of Clean Vision Corporation, said, “The plastic pollution problem is global and so is the need for new, clean sources of energy.”
