Feedstock Materials

H2 First Fuels facilities can use a wide range of feedstock materials.
All the carbon content in these feedstocks is converted into unpolluted gases,
with the small amount of remaining solids removed to be used for other industry.
Unlike other production methods, we do not need to dry the material we are processing
before being able to use it, in fact moisture content actually helps.
Not having to dry the feedstock saves the operation time and cost.


Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) is a mixture of materials from the municipal or commercial waste stream.
RDF largely consists of plastics, paper/cardboard, and wood.
Other solid materials from landfill such as metals and glass are not used as feedstock.
Our facilities can take all plastics.
Using RDF as a feedstock also gives the benefit of helping to reduce landfill waste


Coal is firmly understood to be one of the fossil fuels that the world needs to move away from as a major contributor to global warming and in the case of traditional thermal power plants this is certainly true. The fact is coal still plays an important part in energy production and consumption around the world, and worldwide the use of coal and other fossil fuels to provide fuel for power is likely to continue for decades to come until renewables become a main source of energy.
Now advance to a clean energy future. With our process, instead of coal being considered a polluting fossil fuel, it can be utilized as a completely clean emission free source of energy - hydrogen, and an industry suffering can be rejuvenated with a new and clean purpose.
There is still an abundance of coal available in the UK. Hydrogen as an energy carrier has over twice the calorific value of coal being burned. So to put that into context, using our system there is enough coal here to power the UK with clean electricity for the next 800 years. It will not be necessary to import foreign energy to meet the country’s growing needs.
We can process any type of coal including lignite and coal fines.


Most agri-waste can be used as a feedstock for the H2 First Fuels facilities.
Examples are:
Food waste
Greenhouse waste
Spent coffee
Crop waste
Bone meal
Slaughterhouse residues


A number of biomass materials can be used as feedstocks.
Examples are:
Sugar cane waste – bagasse
Wood – treated or untreated
Husks, shells, and pits – such as olive, peanut, almond, cacao, etc.
Wheat Straw


If necessary, oil products can be effective feedstock for production of
emission free gases using the H2 First Fuels technology.
Examples are:
Crude Oil
Biocrude Oil
Petroleum coke


Human and animal waste can be used as a feedstock, giving options for certain countries challenged by disposal.
The following waste can now be converted into clean fuel and energy:
Sewage sludge - wet or dry
Animal manure
