New Ship To Gather Ocean Garbage And Make Hydrogen


H2 Industries and TECHNOLOG Services, a naval architecture firm, announced a cooperation today (May 18) to construct a ship that will collect plastic garbage and convert it to hydrogen as reported by H2 View.

For every 600 kg of garbage collected, roughly 100 kg of hydrogen can be created, which is then stored in 20-foot containers in liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHC).

The ship will be intended to run on electric motors powered by LOHC manufactured aboard, which will power H2 Industries’ 19-inch eRelease racks. A capacity of 2MW can be achieved by combining numerous racks.

The ship, which is expected to be over 150 metres long, will move at four knots, collecting waste plastic from two smaller vessels dragging a two-mile net that funnels debris from the surface to up to ten metres below.

Pollution in oceans

The collected waste will then be converted to hydrogen on board the ship using the same thermolysis process, that H2 Industries have used onshore.

H2 Industries’ announcement comes following an assessment from the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) which claimed that plastic pollution in oceans and other bodies of water continues to grow sharply and could more than double by 2030.

“At H2-Industries, the plan is to help decarbonise industry and power generation, while cleaning up our water resources and converting pollutants into an energy source.”

“To achieve this, we are looking for investors.

Once the investment is in place, we expect each ship will be built within roughly 24 months.”
