Co-location of hydrogen production within water treatment plants (WTPs) using a recycled wastewater (RWW) feedstock provides opportunities for sustainable, water efficient, and waste-consuming hydrogen production that may offer greater economic viability relative to standalone production facilities. Incorporation of hydrogen economy principles within the water industry may offer considerable advantages, however several knowledge gaps remain.
With Australian utilities beginning to participate in hydrogen production, and the development of an Australian hydrogen economy receiving considerable attention, risks and key questions regarding the viability and scalability of this unique capibility must first be addressed through a state-of-knowledge project from both urban and regional perspectives.
The objective of this project are to:
