Large-scale hydrogen and SAF production facility depends on IRA update

A hydrogen and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility is planned to be installed at the Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) in Pennsylvania, the US.

KeyState Energy, CNX Resources and PIT will collaborate to deliver the project, which is expected to be capable of producing up to 68,000 tonnes per year of hydrogen or exclusively 70 million gallons of SAF annually, or both but at lower volumes.

However, the feasibility of the project could ultimately depend on whether the 45V regulation is updated. Both KeyState and CNX signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to advance the $1.5bn project if the US Department of Treasury enables a pathway for ultra-low carbon intensity fugitive coal mine methane (CMM) under the Hydrogen Production Tax Credit.

The companies involved are evaluating potential market targets for the usage of SAF in the aviation industry and clean hydrogen for local heavy trucks and equipment, power generation and other applications for hard-to-abate sectors.
