RINA and ENVIPARK will analyse the main regulatory barriers and opportunities to maximise recycling of hydrogen technologies (fuel cell and electrolysers), building up from the experience of project HyTechCycling with the support of industry practitioners.
Regulatory updates might cover:
- How to declare rare/precious/hazardous material that compose FCH technologies in technical datasheets (also suggesting how to define for such materials a sort of recyclability level/indicator).
- How to regulate end of life FCH technologies (and or similar technologies containing similar rare/precious/hazardous material) to ensure optimal value recovery.
- How to incorporate secondary rare/precious/hazardous raw materials from EoL FCH technologies into material policy and regulatory framework
Permits and legislative aspects are necessary to effectively implement and upscale BEST4HY recycling processes will be analysed by HRD in order to be compliant to local authorities’ directive legislation and in order to be integrated in existing recycling facilities. RINA and ENVIPARK will support HRD in this sense in the assessment of hazardous/HSE and environmental impact risks.
