September 13 (Renewables Now) - The US unit of Norwegian pure-play hydrogen technology company Nel ASA (OSE:NEL) has received a USD-3-million (EUR 2.95m) contract from sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) company LanzaJet for the supply of a containerised PEM electrolyser.
Nel Hydrogen US will deliver the machine for installation at the world’s first commercial Alcohol-to-Jet production plant. When LanzaJet finishes construction, the facility is expected to produce 10 million gallons of SAF and renewable diesel per year from sustainable ethanol.
“Electrolysers can produce cost effective hydrogen for green chemical processes, which we expect to accelerate in light of recent production tax credit legislation for low carbon hydrogen,” commented Dave Wolff, Regional Sales Manager for Nel Hydrogen US.
Nel plans to deliver the equipment in the third quarter of next year.
