A $9.2bn new renewable energy complex, Grön Fuels, could produce 1,000MW of green hydrogen through electrolysis at the Port of Greater Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Such news follows an announcement made by Koch Engineered Solutions on Tuesday (20th April) that two of its companies, Optimized Process Designs (OPD) and Koch Project Solutions (KPS), have entered into an agreement to support Fidelis Infrastructure in executing and implementing components of the renewable energy complex.
Once complete, the Grön Fuels complex will be capable of producing green hydrogen, renewable diesel, sustainable aviation fuels and bio-plastic feedstocks with carbon capture also involved.
The site could even support a net negative CO2e carbon footprint due to the infrastructure being provided.
Situated strategically at the crossroads of rail, deep water ports, the Mississippi River and national pipeline connectivity, Grön’s renewable fuels complex will enable access to both US east and west coast markets as well as Canadian and European customers.
This will help the US achieve its net zero ambitions in addition to utilising the lucrative hydrogen market by exporting to different international markets.
Paul Switzer, President of Koch Project Solutions, said, “We’re excited to partner with Fidelis to improve the development and scale of long-term fuel solutions across industries.”
Bengt Jarlsjo, Co-Founder and President of Fidelis, said, “In addition to leveraging KPS’ knowledge and scale, we are excited to work with KES on market-leading carbon capture and sequestration solutions for the Grön Fuels Ecosystem.”
