Element Resources to build renewable hydrogen production facility in California

Feb. 1, 2023
The project, which the company says will produce 20,000 tons of renewable hydrogen annually, will be one of the state’s largest green hydrogen production plants.

Element Resources plans to construct and operate a renewable hydrogen production facility in California that will serve the greater Los Angeles area. The project, which the company says will produce 20,000 tons of renewable hydrogen annually, will be one of the state’s largest green hydrogen production plants. Operation at the new facility will begin in 2025, and Element Resources’ electrolyzers will be power by solar energy.

In a recent quote, R. Rex Parris, Mayor of the City of Lancaster, said, "Lancaster is building a robust hydrogen production capacity to enable regional decarbonization. We believe municipalities can lead the fight against climate change from the bottom up by unleashing businesses' innovative capacities by removing barriers to market."
