Leading US carbon capture project set to produce clean hydrogen

April 13, 2021

Clean hydrogen energy is set to be produced from a repurposed gasification plant in Indiana, US.

Wabash Valley Resources will use Honeywell UOP technologies to capture and sequester up to 1.65 million tonnes of carbon dioxide annually from the plant in West Terre Haute – and the project is expected to be one of the largest carbon sequestration initiatives in the US to date.

Plans to convert the world-scale gasification plant to a hydrogen production facility and carbon capture and sequestration project were unveiled in 2016 by Wabash Valley Resources.

Dan Williams, Managing Director at Wabash Valley Resources, said, “By implementing Honeywell UOP’s proven technologies for the capture of CO2 and hydrogen purification, we will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“This project will allow for market access to clean hydrogen, as well as support the domestic growth of the hydrogen economy.”

A recent study by the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA) estimates the hydrogen economy can generate as much as $140bn per year in revenue and create 700,000 US jobs by 2030.

At projected growth rates, this could grow to $750bn per year in revenue and 3.4 million jobs by 2050.
