The other constituents were carbon monoxide and methane.

“PowerHouse has long focused on the efficient generation of energy from waste. However, our ability to generate a concentrated volume of hydrogen from waste, on a distributed basis, sets us apart from others,” said chairman Keith Allaun.

“We believe that distributed modular gasification is critical to opening the door to the coming hydrogen economy.
