Energy Harbor Corp. is joining forces with the University of Toledo, major industrial companies in the US midwest region, several DOE national laboratories and others to form the Great Lakes Clean Hydrogen (GLCH) coalition.
Using the carbon free nuclear power generated by Energy Harbor’s Davis-Besse Power Station, GLCH will produce clean hydrogen through water electrolysis aligned with the DOE’s Hydrogen Shot goals and will result in near-term cost-effective decarbonisation, pollutant reductions and employment opportunities.
Nuclear hydrogen production, aiming to launch in 2023, will be created by a unit featuring Low Temperature Electrolysis (LTE) using Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) technology to produce hydrogen, avoiding the challenge of capturing and sequestering carbon dioxide.
Frank Calzonetti, Vice President for Research at The University of Toledo, said, “This industry-led Hydrogen Hub coalition intends to ensure that the Midwest is a leader in a decarbonisation transition so that regional industries and supply chains are globally competitive, and opportunities are created for workers and their communities.”
