Waste-to-hydrogen technologies are at the heart of a new strategic collaboration agreement inked today (Nov 26) between EQTEC and Wood.
In a move that will support the globes transition to net-zero, the duo will target and pursue market opportunities for the development and deployment of waste-to-synthetic natural gas and waste-to-hydrogen solutions.
Jeff Vander Linden, Chief Operating Officer at EQTEC, said, “The markets for SNG and hydrogen mare maturing rapidly. EQTEC’s unique capabilities in producing high-quality syngas have always positions us well as a supplier of intermediate fuel for both applications.
“This collaboration agreement with Wood is an important start to our entry into these growth markets. Wood’s team are among the very best at what they do, and we are excited to have the opportunity to work shoulder-to-shoulder with them to bring our waste-to-syngas capabilities to new solutions in more geographies.”
Under plans of the agreement, EQTEC and Wood will develop and deploy waste-to-SNG and hydrogen solutions and assess and target specific market opportunities for the deployment of the new commercial solutions.
In order to support the roll-out of such technologies, the duo will establish a collaboration management team that will advise and propose opportunities to the parties for joint pursuit.
Brian McCarthy, Vice-President of Technology and Products at Wood, said, “Wood has a long-established experience in the development of technologies for low carbon intensity fuels and hydrogen.
“Our VESTA methanation technology enables producers of syngas, such as EQTEC, to connect to existing natural gas networks, offering an alternative route to distribute the low carbon energy produced by EQTEC’s Advanced Gasification Technology.
“By combining EQTEC’s and Wood’s breakthrough technologies and leveraging our combined capabilities, this collaboration will provide the opportunity to innovate and create solutions to support the path to net zero.”
