"NI Water, working with Lagan MEICA JV & ARUP, is undertaking innovative liquid oxygen trials at its major wastewater treatment works in Belfast as part of its wider Hydrogen and Oxygen Demonstrator Project".

LaganMEICA are delighted to have been the focus of an article produced by Water Magazine on our Hydrogen and Oxygen Demonstrator Project.

The ground-breaking demonstrator project is paving the way for the deployment of a state-of-the-art, 1 Megawatt (MW) electrolyser which will help the growth and development of the hydrogen economy in Northern Ireland.

“The purpose of the liquid oxygen trials is to investigate the potential benefits of oxygen within the treatment of wastewater and in the reduction of carbon emissions. The outcome of the trials will inform how oxygen could be incorporated within the wastewater treatment process and, as the project progresses, help kick-start the hydrogen economy to develop in Northern Ireland. “We’re delighted to be collaborating with Lagan MEICA JV & ARUP at the forefront of Northern Ireland’s developing hydrogen economy. As Northern Ireland’s single largest electricity consumer, this initiative is an integral part of our plans to achieve net zero.”
