KP Engineering, LP (KPE), a leader in the design and execution of customized EPC solutions for the refining, syngas, hydrogen, and renewable fuels industries, has entered into a mutual collaboration agreement with OMNI Conversion Technologies Inc. (OMNI). OMNI is a Canadian company focused on producing clean green energy by converting energetic waste into OmniSyngas and OmniRock, with full diversion from landfill. The collaboration will enable the companies to supply equipment and technology to produce hydrogen from waste with a negative carbon footprint at less than half the cost of electrolysis.
A result of the long-standing mutually beneficial working relationship between KPE and OMNI, the new agreement formalizes the collaboration and provides a one-stop experience for potential customers. KPE and OMNI will co-market OMNI's patented technology. They will exclusively collaborate with each other to provide an integrated modular solution for converting a wide variety of minimally prepared wastes to hydrogen, while capturing CO2 for subsequent use or sequestration. Biomass-fed projects will fall outside of the scope of the agreement.
William E. Preston, president and chief operating officer, KP Engineering, said, “The partnership between KPE as an industry-leading EPC with a ground-breaking technology provider such as OMNI embodies the type of collaboration that will bring green hydrogen to fruition. This agreement solidifies an already highly efficient working relationship between KPE and OMNI, and will bring to market a cost-effective, zero- and even negative-carbon emission option for producing green hydrogen.”
Marc Bacon, president and chief operating officer, OMNI, said “This agreement formalizes the close relationship OMNI enjoys with KPE. It provides seamless integration of OMNI’s GPRSTM units, developed over more than a decade at a cost of over US$400M, with downstream unit operations by KPE to convert the syngas to hydrogen. We are thrilled to work with KPE in the new circular economy to reduce methane emissions from municipal solid waste (MSW) and other wastes by providing a one-stop, low-cost, and low-risk solution.”
