HGG SG H2 Energy plans to build a hydrogen production facility that will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The facility in Lancaster, California, uses the SG H2 energy gas purification process, which is said to reduce carbon dioxide emissions more than renewable energy, which is generally considered a pure hydrogen-production method.
The company said in its first life cycle analysis from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory that it emits 30 to 20 tons of CO2 to hydrogen, which is 13-19 tons more CO2 than electrolytic hydrogen. SG H2 is four to five times cheaper to produce hydrogen.

According to a SG H2 Energy press release, the plant uses waste paper as a feeder, along with recycled water. Both will be offered in Lancaster, and will be co-owned by the institution. This arrangement will reduce waste methane, and save the city $ 50 to $ 75 per ton, according to SGH2 Energy.
Located on five hectares of land, the plant is scheduled to break ground in Q1 2022 and start production in Q3 2023 under SG H2 Energy. It will produce 3.85 million kilograms of hydrogen a year and handle 42,000 tons of recycled waste, the company said. Japanese industrial-gas company Ivatani buys the most commonly used hydrogen at its stations in California.
Not all hydrogen advocates are thinking green. Bilateral infrastructure accounting includes provisions for so-called “hydrogen centers” that can serve as a source of coal. That in many ways can ensure a shorter outlook.

An analysis from IHS Markit last year found that renewable hydrogen could be competitive in 2030.
And according to a report from the California Energy Commission, hydrogen could reach the price of gasoline by 2025. Part of the issue involves not only creating demand but also creating infrastructure to distribute it. That has led some companies to think of solutions to bring the right hydrogen product to the ship – for example, as the celestial system is experimenting with karma.
