Biggest hydrogen fuel cell component factory in U.S. coming to Bolingbrook, Illinois

March 2, 2021

Hyzon Motors said it will begin manufacturing in a 28,000-square-foot facility at 599 S. Schmidt Road and hire about 50 people by year-end. It will start construction on an 80,000-square-foot building and grow to about 100 employees next year. The facility will produce the most critical part of the hydrogen fuel cell, but it also will house research development. Most of the jobs will be engineering-related roles, said CEO Craig Knight. The company will draw on expertise in alternative energy technology and materials science at Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont. The Bolingbrook facility could produce enough fuel-cell membrane electrodes for up to 12,000 trucks a year and will be the largest plant of its kind in the U.S. The electrodes are the core of a fuel cell, which converts hydrogen to electricity. Final assembly of the fuel cells will happen at the company’s facility on the East Coast. Read more here.
