ReCarbon, H2Renewables to develop five landfill-gas-to-hydrogen projects across US
Cost-effective green hydrogen is pivotal for the scale-up of heavy hydrogen fuel-cell mobility, especially long haul trucks and buses.
ReCarbon, Inc. (an American plasma technology provider of converting greenhouse gases into syngas and clean hydrogen) and H2Renewables, LLC (a US-based landfill-gas-to-hydrogen project developer) has announced the execution of a supply agreement to develop five large landfill gas to hydrogen projects in the US.
Under the agreement, five sites will utilise landfill gas to produce carbon-negative green hydrogen, where the first site in McDonald, Tennessee, is set to produce 12 tonnes/day of hydrogen. The partners have identified several suitable sites throughout the US capable of producing over 60 tonnes/day of hydrogen.
Pathways towards qualifying for both RINS and LCFS credits are being developed, further enhancing the competitiveness of the green hydrogen.
Dr Jay Kim, ReCarbon CEO, said, “Looks forward to continuing our close partnership with H2Renewables in the development of significant carbon-negative green hydrogen production facilities; the beginning of realising our vision of a localised green hydrogen ecosystem.”
Previously, ReCarbon and an Australian biogas developer Utilitas have established the Bundaberg Biohydrogen Technology Cluster (BHTC) at Utilitas Bundaberg bioHub facility. The carbon-negative renewable hydrogen production facility will produce, distribute and dispense hydrogen, including hydrogen refuelling station onsite. Using biogas derived from the anaerobic digestion of biomass from community and agribusiness sources, ReCarbon’s Plasma Carbon Conversion Unit will produce fuel cell grade hydrogen cost-effectively.
