Macrotek Inc. to Provide Gas Quality Control System for OMNI CT’s First-of-its-Kind Waste to Hydrogen Product in the Fight Against Climate Change

Today, global air pollution control provider and product recovery expert, Macrotek Inc., announced award of a contract to design and supply a Gas Quality Control System (GQCS) for OMNI Conversion Technologies Inc. (OMNI CT) for their unprecedented waste to hydrogen product. The Larsen and Lam Climate Initiative, a foundation backed by philanthropists Chris Larsen and Lyna Lam, has committed $35 million to bring this ground-breaking technology to production in the fight against climate change. The first commercial plant in production from OMNI CT will use unsorted non-recyclable Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), which is currently disposed of in landfills, to produce negative carbon hydrogen in California.

Macrotek’s GQCS will include its proprietary SULFCAT® technology which recovers contaminants to produce negative carbon by-products. New technologies are essential in the fight against climate change. While low-cost solar electricity was a dream only a decade ago, its impact today is far-reaching. The Larsen and Lam Climate Initiative investment will accelerate the global adoption of OMNI CT technology.

“With the importance of CO2 reduction and clean technologies growing worldwide, we are excited to be working with the OMNI team to bring this project and the technology to market in California and globally. We have partnered with Omni for nearly two decades in supporting the technology and perfecting its GQCS component” said Peter Ristevski, President of Macrotek.

Macrotek’s system will be incorporated within OMNI200™ GPRS™ and planned to be in production in California late 2023 or early 2024.

About OMNI CT

OMNI CT is an Ottawa Canada-based company that has developed a proprietary system to produce clean green hydrogen and biofuels, for the circular economy.

OMNI CT’s robust efficient OMNI200™ GPRS™ is providing a unique solution to achieving decarbonization targets.

The OMNI200™ Gasification & Plasma Refining System (GPRS™)

The OMNI200™ GPRS™ unit is a complete integrated system, delivered to site in large modules, for ease of integration.  It receives and converts at a rate of 200 tonnes per day (67,000 tonnes per year) a wide variety and mix of energetic wastes into clean consistent syngas with a predictable heating value and composition. The H2/CO ratio can be tailored to the final application. Multiple units can be readily combined for larger plants.

OmniSyngas™

OmniSyngas™ is a precursor to the production of hydrogen and biofuels. Non-recyclable Municipal solid Waste has more than 50% biogenic content. This will produce green fuels and avoid methane from sending waste to landfills. Since methane has 25x the GHG effect of CO2, these fuels can be produced with a negative carbon footprint.
