The world’s largest green hydrogen production plant is planned to begin construction in 2021 in Lancaster, California.
It will convert waste to hydrogen fuel. This means using old plastic and paper which would otherwise go to landfill. The plastic and paper is turned into gas at temperatures up to 7,000°F before getting transformed into hydrogen.
SGH2 Energy Global is the company behind the processing plant. It says that its technology can reduce carbon emissions between 2 and 3 times more than green hydrogen produced using renewable energy and electrolysis.
The plant is expected to produce up to 11,000kg of hydrogen per day and up to 3,800,000kg per year, from 40,000 tons of waste.
The plant is expected to become fully operational by 2023.
