Document Description
The Raven SR Bioenergy Project (project) proposes to construct and operate a bioenergy system composed of the Raven SR multi-patented Steam/C02 Reformation process at the project site. The non-combustion process would convert blended green waste and food waste, obtained from the existing West Contra Costa Sanitary Landfill Organic Materials Processing Facility (OMPF) operation adjacent to the project site, into renewable, transportation grade hydrogen that would be exported offsite for various renewable energy products. No long-term hydrogen storage would occur onsite. The project would involve the construction of a modular structure and industrial canopy.
