Fresno (CA), June 15, 2023
Fresno (CA), June 15, 2023 – H2B2 Electrolysis Technologies, Inc. (“H2B2”, “Company” and “us”), a global green hydrogen development and technology company, announced that on June 1, 2023, its SoHyCal project, located in Fresno, California, began commercial production with an initial 1.2 Ton/day capacity.
This landmark project, awarded by the California Energy Commission, is a green hydrogen production facility wholly owned by H2B2, and once Phase II is completed over the next 18 months, it is expected to be one of the largest green hydrogen production facilities in the United States.
The SoHyCal project is expected to supply green hydrogen to the California mobility market. California is a global market leader in aggressively supporting the increase in hydrogen development. Despite these efforts, California currently has significant unmet demand, particularly for mobility uses.
The SoHyCal project will initially be powered by a biogas engine that burns biogas from an organic waste source near the production facility and, subsequently, in the next phase of the project, by a photovoltaic solar plant.
