Johnson Matthey (JM), Kent, Essar Oil UK and Progressive Energy will hold a virtual event on Thursday (Sep 16) to discuss plans for the UK’s first low carbon hydrogen hub.
The £750m project, being delivered jointly by Progressive Energy and Essar, will produce low carbon hydrogen at Essar’s Stanlow Manufacturing Complex in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire.
It will use JM’s Low Carbon Hydrogen (LCH™) technology with engineering being run by Kent (formally SNC-Lavalin).
H2 View revealed earlier today that Essar has lodged a planning application with Cheshire West and Chester Council for the introduction of new substances at the site.
Essar Oil wants to introduce oxygen and natural gas as well as increase the quantities of hydrogen to its production processes at the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex.
The energy firm also wants to increase substances it says fall within the “flammable gases and environmental hazard categories” at the proposed low carbon hydrogen production plant.
At the free event on Thursday, attendees will be able to hear the engineers, project managers and technologists explain exactly what they have done so far, and the challenges and learnings they have experienced along the way.
The panel session comprises senior representatives of each organisation explaining how this will change the future of industry in a net zero world.
