Phred Dvorak of The Wall Street Journal reports on a $4 billion green hydrogen plant that is being built in the U.S.

The C3 Take
  • The green hydrogen plant is being built by Air Products and AES and will located in North Texas on the site of a retired coal plant.
  • Once it begins operations in 2027 the plant will be able to produce more than 73,000 metric tons of green hydrogen per year, making it the largest green hydrogen facility in the U.S. and one of the 10 largest in the world.
  • Free market innovation is essential to creating a cleaner energy future.

“Air Products is already the world’s biggest producer of hydrogen, making around 3.5 million metric tons a year, Mr. Ghasemi said. The company plans to sell the green hydrogen from the Texas plant to some of its climate-conscious industrial customers as well as users such as trucking companies looking for sources of fuel that don’t emit greenhouse gas, he said.”
