Klean Industries Inc, a company focusing on the recovery of clean energy and resources from waste, is pleased to announce that it is in the process of finalizing some important partnerships that are synergistic in the adoption of distributed hydrogen production and dispensing for use in the transportation and logistics sector across the Pacific Northwest.
These partnerships provide the demand for the much-needed infrastructure for hydrogen mobility creating a faster adoption cycle in the logistics and transportation industry to use hydrogen as a fuel in the mobility sector that compliments the use of hydrogen in waste management and recycling. As a continued commitment to stakeholders, the company seeks to create integrated solutions that further reinforce the development of low carbon circular economy, and using hydrogen as fuel within the company’s waste management supply chain underpins the company’s ethos of building clean industries.
Key partners in this consortium will be announced over Q2 and Q3 of 2023. Klean anticipates that these partnerships will provide a foundation to help play a major role in supplying and distributing green hydrogen to several hydrogen dispensing stations along the purposed, hydrogen highway that goes from British Columbia to California.
“Klean, along with its partners, has several sites that could be used to distribute green hydrogen to industrial and compact hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. “We wish to make hydrogen fuel cell vehicles a practical and convenient option for daily logistics operators and local transportation, and to support the development of a low-carbon transportation sector”, commented Marc Schwarzlose.
While the concept of a hydrogen highway from British Columbia to California is not new, it has struggled to gain traction and is still in the early stages of development. This is due in part to the availability of cost-effective hydrogen and the slow adoption of automotive technologies used in Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (“FCEV”) and Battery Electric Vehicles (“BEV”).
This has now all changed and Klean sees an opportunity to combine its efforts to build out the infrastructure alongside its waste management applications to support the production of hydrogen as a fuel source. The idea behind the hydrogen highway is to create a comprehensive system for refueling both FCEV and BEV, like the existing networks of gasoline stations and Tesla electric charging stations”, said Jesse Klinkhamer.
Klean is actively sourcing new locations to add to its pipeline of hydrogen projects. Appropriate sites for hydrogen fuel dispensing stations are of the utmost importance as the company continues to source land and urges landowners along the I-5 corridor in the Pacific Northwest to contact us if they wish to learn more about opportunities in the space.
