ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Feb. 27, 2023 (Globe NEWSWIRE) — Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEVO) announced today that they have finalized a Hydrogen Improvement Services Agreement with Zero6 Electricity (formerly Juhl Electrical power) for the advancement of a 20-megawatt hydrogen output facility in Lake Preston, South Dakota, working with Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) electrolyzer know-how. The facility, identified as the Dakota Renewable Hydrogen Project (DRH), will be an integral portion of Gevo’s Internet-Zero 1 renewable hydrocarbon plant (NZ1) that is beneath advancement.
“We are excited to again be doing the job with the Zero6 team on the growth of a project that is very important to the decarbonization of Gevo’s liquid transportation fuels and our long-term goal of developing internet-zero emissions gasoline and chemical products and solutions,” mentioned Gevo’s President & COO, Dr. Chris Ryan. “After our mutual success on the enhancement of wind power for the defossilized electrification of our progress facility in Luverne, Minnesota, we are self-confident that Zero6 will be an great lover for our Net-Zero 1 hydrocarbon production facility.”
“This venture is a fantastic suit for the Zero6 staff, and we are thrilled to highlight our abilities as NZ1 arrives on line,” extra Clay Norrbom, President of Zero6 Energy. “In addition to the utilization of the established Cummins electrolyzer technological know-how to develop green hydrogen, a portion of our electricity wants will be supplied by the Kingsbury County Wind Gasoline wind farm. Gevo’s decarbonization efforts really are the sum of several critical initiatives.”
Cummins will supply the job with an electrolyzer program comprised of 4 HyLYZER®-1000 proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers to develop hydrogen. Cummins’ HyLYZER®-1000 product is at the moment in procedure at a related facility in Becancour, Quebec, Canada. An electrolyzer splits water into oxygen and hydrogen. When run by renewable electrical energy, the hydrogen developed is green and carbon absolutely free. This environmentally friendly hydrogen can be saved as a compressed fuel or a liquid and employed as an electricity-dense, clear electrical power source.
“This undertaking builds on Cummins’ hydrogen technologies innovation and demonstrates the maturity and scalability of our items to meet up with buyer needs. We are happy to lover with Gevo and Zero6 to deliver zero-emission energy to significant applications,” said Alex Savelli, Managing Director Electrolyzers – Americas for Cummins. “Cummins is fully commited to advancing the inexperienced hydrogen economic system, and our electrolyzer program is a change-important alternative for jobs like the Dakota Renewable Hydrogen Challenge.”
More than 80% of the DRH hydrogen output ability will be immediately piped to the Gevo NZ1 plant to be utilized in the hydrocarbon refining method. The DRH will be situated on the NZ1 plant residence under a extensive-expression lease agreement from Gevo.
Gevo’s mission is to transform renewable vitality and carbon into electrical power-dense liquid hydrocarbons. These liquid hydrocarbons can be utilized for fall-in transportation fuels these as gasoline, jet gas and diesel fuel, that when burned have potential to generate web-zero greenhouse gas emissions when calculated throughout the entire everyday living cycle of the items. Gevo works by using lower-carbon renewable source-based carbs as raw materials, and is in an state-of-the-art condition of producing renewable electricity and renewable all-natural fuel for use in production processes, resulting in small-carbon fuels with substantially diminished carbon depth (the amount of greenhouse fuel emissions when compared to regular petroleum fossil-centered fuels across their lifetime cycle). Gevo’s items accomplish as properly or superior than conventional fossil-based fuels in infrastructure and engines, but with significantly lessened greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to addressing the issues of fuels, Gevo’s know-how also permits selected plastics, these kinds of as polyester, to be designed with much more sustainable elements. Gevo’s ability to penetrate the rising low-carbon fuels industry is dependent on the selling price of oil and the price of abating carbon emissions that would normally boost greenhouse gas emissions. Gevo believes that it possesses the know-how and know-how to transform numerous carbohydrate feedstocks via a fermentation process into alcohols and then transform the alcohols into renewable fuels and supplies, by a combination of its very own technological know-how, know-how, engineering, and licensing of technological innovation and engineering from Axens North The usa, Inc., which yields the opportunity to deliver task and company returns that justify the make-out of a multi-billion-dollar business.
Gevo thinks that the Argonne Countrywide Laboratory GREET model is the finest readily available regular of scientific-based mostly measurement for life cycle stock or LCI.
