Hydrogen for 200 Million Vehicles: Air Products/Orange County Open Wastewater-Hydrogen Fuel Plant:

Air Products opened its latest hydrogen fueling station in Orange County California, the Lehigh Valley-based company announced yesterday. The new hydrogen fuel plant is a notable achievement when it comes to integrated wastewater treatment-biogas power, fuel and heat production in that hydrogen is produced from methane gas emitted from wastewater in holding tanks at the Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD) in Fountain Valley.The Air Products plant is equipped with a FuelCell Energy fuel cell that reforms the methane into hydrogen, which is used to generate 250 kilowatts of electricity that provides clean, renewable power for the wastewater treatment facility. The heat put out by the fuel cell could also be used for other purposes on-site. Air Products’ technology refines surplus hydrogen further, producing enough vehicle-grade hydrogen for 25-50 fuel cell vehicles each...
