Revealed today (May 25), the American producer of industrial and agricultural chemicals, LSB will use Bloom Energy’s solid oxide electrolysers to produce ‘low-cost hydrogen’ at a large scale.
The electrolysers will be installed at LSB’s Pryor Oklahoma facility, one of the largest ammonia production sites in North America and hopes to decarbonise the production of the chemical.
Rick Beuttel, Vice-President, Hydrogen Business at Bloom Energy, said, “Achieving a net-zero future requires clean hydrogen at scale, and the collaboration between Bloom Energy and LSB is a milestone for both green hydrogen production and the decarbonisation of an industry that’s vital to farmers and consumers alike.”
“We’re excited to collaborate with LSB to provide significant electrolysis efficiencies, demonstrating that zero-carbon fuels are available and accessible today.”
The news comes just months after Oklahoma, among other US states unveiled plans to create a regional hydrogen hub, under the bipartisan package designed to support hydrogen technologies.
North American Hydrogen Summit
H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.
As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.
With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
