The SI topic is about waste-to-hydrogen (WtH) new development and direction. Hydrogen is one of the most promising alternatives of fossil fuel for greenhouse gas emission reduction in view of the abundance and availability of its production sources like biomass and water. Solid waste and waste water are potential sources for hydrogen production, which has an additional benefit of improved waste management practice. This special issue will focus on the novel development of waste-to-hydrogen technologies, methods and systems, and the economic and environmental impacts of WtH. Specifically, we will consider:

1. New development of state-of-the-art WtH technologies and methods.

2. Cost-benefit analysis and life cycle assessment of relevant WtH systems and applications.

3. Environmental impacts of WtH on both local and global scales.

4. Hybrid system design for WtH and electric vehicle transportation.

5. Fundamental researches on the use of biochar to improve the energy efficiency and selectivity of hydrogen production processes.

6. Perspective/review of the current status of WtH technologies and systems and future directions.
