World’s First Wastewater Hydrogen Fuel Plant Opens Today

“Air Products, one of the leaders in hydrogen fueling technology, have just announced the official opening of the world’s first fuel cell and hydrogen energy station in Orange County, California.

Inaugurated today, the station is unlike any other built before, in that it draws from a nearby wastewater plant to not only sustain itself, but to also power hydrogen vehicles.

Methane emitted from the Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD) wastewater facility is now being converted into hydrogen to not only power fuel cell vehicles, but also serve as a sustainable source of electricity and heat for the facilities themselves.

Methane from the plant feeds into a state of the art fuel cell built by FuelCell Energy, Inc., where it is then re-formed to hydrogen.”
