Nebraska chemical, hydrogen company looks to power operations with 100% RECs

January 4, 2021

Chemical and hydrogen company Monolith Materials Jan. 4 said it is seeking 2 million MWh annually of renewable energy through an agreement with the Nebraska Public Power District to supply its Olive Creek facility with 100% renewable energy.

Monolith said in a press release that to facilitate the proposed $1 billion expansion of its Olive Creek facility it signed a letter of intent with the NPPD to procure the annual 2 million MWh of power.

“While affordability and reliability are key business considerations, the sustainability of our power supply is also a critical factor for Monolith. We use this renewable electricity to sustainably make essential products for the automotive, industrial and agriculture sectors,” Hanson said.

The company uses a commercial-scale methane pyrolysis production process to produce hydrogen with 100% renewable energy, according to its website.
