Welcome to the homepage of PlasCarb project

PlasCarb will transform biogas generated by anaerobic digestion of food waste using an innovative low energy microwave plasma process to split biogas (methane) into high value graphitic carbon and renewable hydrogen (RH2). As part of the project the quality and economic value of the carbon and RH2 will be optimised using high quality research and industrial process engineering. Life cycle analysis will ensure that the approach is sustainable and taken beyond BAT. In the latter stages of the project sustainability will be verified by the EU Environmental Technology Verification pre-programme enabling PlasCarb to be certified as being BAT and suitable for transfer to market. Market opportunities will be assessed and validated. Verification that the process can be implemented at a local decentralised level will be confirmed via SME partner members with expert knowledge in waste management, innovative finance risk, and trans-Europe dissemination.

 

PlasCarb goes to Industry: The consortium presented the project at the ANM2016 in Aveiro, PT and at the RWM2016 in Birmingham, UK.

 

PlasCarb is a collaborative action funded by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) "Environment" Theme.
