Scaling Green Hydrogen Co-operative Research Centre (SGH CRC) – Leading a water-centred research program

Water sector participation in the green hydrogen economy will not only contribute to Australia’s emerging circular and decarbonised economy, but also offer products that could serve as versatile low-GHG emission energy storage mechanisms, fuel sources, and feedstocks for industrial (including water industry) processes.

Details

Co-location of green hydrogen production within, or adjacent to, water/wastewater treatment plants (WTPs/WWTPs) using recycled wastewater (RWW) feedstock could provide opportunities for sustainable, water-efficient, and waste-consuming production of green hydrogen as well as valuable co-products, potentially offering greater economic viability and value compared to standalone hydrogen production facilities. However, while water sector participation may offer considerable advantages to the industry itself and the communities it serves, several knowledge gaps remain.

Water Research Australia is proposing to establish a Water Industry Consortium in the Scaling Green Hydrogen CRC to ensure water sector representation. By working with other sectors within the CRC we can ensure our sector’s needs are met and together drive and accelerate national capabilities in an emerging hydrogen sector.

By joining the WaterRA-led consortium, the water sector can participate in the CRC as a core partner, with the ability to propel, co-design and co-deliver a water-centred research and capacity building program that directly benefits consortium participants.
