Hyzon Motors partners with RenewH2 to sell liquid hydrogen

In News1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineAugust 6, 2021

Hyzon Motors has signed a memorandum of understanding with RenewH2, a US-based sustainable hydrogen production, liquefaction, distribution and dispensing company, to collaborate on the supply and demand side of liquid hydrogen production.

Under the MoU, RenewH2 plans to reform biogenic methane gas to generate hydrogen. The hydrogen would then be liquefied and delivered to hydrogen fueling stations, which are expected to be developed in collaboration with Hyzon.

Through this collaboration, the stations can be located near Hyzon customers to help provide consistent demand for the fuel.

“By aligning the production of hydrogen with the fueling infrastructure and the end-consumer – hydrogen-powered trucks – this partnership addresses the chicken-and-egg problem that has prevented broad-scale hydrogen adoption,” said Hyzon CEO Craig Knight.

“This type of collaboration is crucial to accelerating decarbonisation.”

The greater range means fewer fueling stations, thereby reducing the need for liquid hydrogen to be transported to many locations.

In addition, the refueling infrastructure capital and operating costs are expected to be lower when compared to gaseous hydrogen, due to the elimination of the compression and refrigeration equipment.
