BayoTech, Inc. announced the Detroit region as the next location for expanding its distributed hydrogen network in partnership with the American Center for Mobility (ACM).
ACM’s 500-acre site in Ypsilanti Township will be home to a BayoGaaS™ Hydrogen Hub, producing 350 tonnes per year of low-carbon hydrogen.
BayoTech’s BayoGaaS™ Hydrogen Hub at ACM’s facility will begin producing low-cost, low-carbon hydrogen for Michigan in 2023.
Hydrogen, produced by BayoTech’s well-proven and safe technology, will serve the global manufacturers, OEMs, and mobility innovators testing and validating vehicles at ACM’s facility.
It will also be delivered via BayoTech’s proprietary high-pressure transport trailers to local customers operating zero-emission fuel cell equipment or hydrogen-intensive industrial processes in and around Michigan. BayoTech‘s hydrogen hubs are strategically located close to the customers, so delivery is a short-haul – lowering both emissions and cost.
Reuben Sarkar, ACM’s President & CEO, said, “Hydrogen has a crucial role to play in enabling zero-emission vehicles in key segments of transportation.”
Matt Stich, General Manager, Toyota Fuel Cell Solutions, said, “Additional infrastructure and the ability for companies to test future technologies at places like ACM will only help grow the fuel cell market moving forward.”
Adam Penque, BayoTech’s SVP of Sales & Hydrogen Hubs, said, Hydrogen is fueling the future of transportation. We congratulate ACM for being innovators in seeking out the infrastructure to support automotive OEMs’ fuel cell vehicle commercialization activities.”
Brenda Stumbo, Ypsilanti Township Supervisor, said, “Willow Run assembly plant in Ypsilanti Township is among the most important places in Michigan’s industrial history. Eighty years after the last World War II fighter plane was assembled there, it’s evolved to become the leading test center for future mobility solutions.”
Congresswoman Debbie Dingell said, ” This investment will create high-value, good-paying jobs in our community and produce low-carbon fuel that will reduce local emissions and power the technology of the future.”
