A massive green hydrogen (H2) production project will soon be unveiled in Bécancour, Québec, Canada by H2 V Energies. The Alpha plant will be a launch pad for bringing full green H2 to the North American scene, becoming a global showcase with a zero environmental footprint, in line with international climate change objectives.
The Québec based company H2 V Energies has started accepting orders for green H2, i.e., decarbonated, traceable H2 in gaseous form and up to 99.8% pure, which will be delivered compressed at 300 500 or 950 bars starting in 2022. The start-up company is thus launching a continental plan for its deployment. The price of this green H2 will be CAN$3.50/kg, plus taxes, deployment and delivery charges extra and a more affordable price compared with diesel fuel. Transport will be carried out by tankers operating on green H2.
Normand Goyette, President and CEO of H2 V Energies, said: “By declaring that the company is now accepting orders, an important step towards the realisation of its ambitious project is being taken […] this essential step is the result of hard work over the past few years and it sets the process in motion towards the construction of the plant that will be located in the Bécancour Waterfront Industrial Park."
The start-up of a plasma gasification system followed by a refining system is an international first - advanced, low complexity, proven and patented technology that will use raw materials. These materials will include residual forest biomass, mixed papers (with less than 8% contamination) banned by China in 2018 and very recently by India, wood construction demolition waste and hydroelectricity as renewable energy.
The particularity of this concept is that there is no steam reforming hydrocarbons or electrolysis of water and no need for wind turbines and solar panels.
The plant will convert waste wood, bark and paper into syngas and then turn it into green H2.
Close to 49 000 tpy of decarbonated H2 will be produced with the opening of this plant. The demand for green H2 will increase significantly over the next few years.
