Protium secures planning to develop hydrogen production plant at Budweiser brewery

Protium Green Solutions has received planning consent to develop large-scale hydrogen production at Budweiser Brewing Group’s Samlesbury brewery.

Located in Lancashire, the UK, the project is expected to save up to 11,000 tonnes per year of CO2 and support the brewery in decarbonising its operations by using hydrogen in its boilers and heavy goods vehicles.

Commenting on LinkedIn, Christopher Jackson, Protium’s CEO and Founder said the project is now the “most advanced” green hydrogen production project being considered under the UK Government’s Hydrogen Allocation Round 2 process (HAR2).

H2 View understands Samlesbury Net Zero has now secured planning and grid capacity, as well as a completed front end engineering design (FEED).

Jackson added, “This also marks a major step towards Protium’s target of 1GW of green hydrogen deployed by 2030.”

Situated just off the A59 between Preston and Blackburn, Protium plans to also build refuelling infrastructure which will likely use the locally produced hydrogen as fuel.

Protium and Budweiser first announced plans for the Samlesbury Net Zero project last March (2023), initially to help meet the brewery’s thermal, heating and transport needs through hydrogen.
