Revealed today (March 14), the Mitacs-funded project will focus on designing and assessing feasible hydrogen fuel networks for the province of Alberta and the state of California as case studies.

The groups said that the objectives of the research project are two-fold. Azolla seeks to analyse the processes and challenges in implementing an environmentally sustainable methanol-based hydrogen production network to supply vehicular fuel demand in North America.

Azolla also aims to determine the optimal design of the pathways in order to build a clean fuel network from the lens of a life cycle analysis.

Jared Sayers, President and CEO of Azolla Hydrogen, said, “Our technology’s premise is based on lean manufacturing to increase the efficiency of low greenhouse gas Hydrogen production, making it even more sustainable and part of the circular carbon economy.”

Dr. Odegaard, Associate Professor at the Ivey Business School, said, “The need for low-carbon fuels was yesterday. We simply cannot combat global warming without drastically changing the current fuel source of motor vehicles.

“However, we also need to better understand the life cycle of carbon production and design fueling networks that are environmentally sustainable and economically scalable. And so, I am very excited to be part of this research project.”

Making hydrogen happen

This March, H2 View will explore A Climate for Action and Investment in Europe in an immersive virtual event that features some of the leading stakeholders and influencers in hydrogen, including a Women in Green Hydrogen panel.

Confirmed speakers include the Hydrogen Europe, Clean Hydrogen Partnership, FiveT Hydrogen, Airbus, Nel, BMW, Michelin and more.
