Raven SR Inc., a renewable fuels company, announced the selection of POWER Engineers, Inc. and Stellar J Corporation to complete the final design, engineering and fabrication of the company’s first commercial renewable fuels production facilities, to be located in the San Francisco Bay area. The facilities will convert a blend of green waste and food waste into green hydrogen for the commercial transportation market.
“We are excited to be working with POWER and Stellar J, two extremely experienced engineering and fabrication firms to build our first renewable fuels production facilities,” said Matt Murdock, Raven SR CEO. “Both firms have a solid understanding of the energy industry and specifically, the renewable fuels sectors. We are confident that, with their experience, we will have our first facilities producing renewable hydrogen fuel in the summer of 2022.”
Raven SR’s first commercial systems will produce up to 10,000 kgs/day of renewable hydrogen from a blend of green waste and food waste that is being diverted from landfilling, with a negative carbon intensity generating a California low carbon fuel credit (LCFS) for fueling stations. Raven SR’s patented Steam/CO2 Reformation process enables it to be one of the only non-combustion, waste-to-hydrogen processes in the world.
Raven SR’s first commercial systems can reduce landfill waste by up to 200 tons per day, converting it to nearly 10 tons of renewable hydrogen, enough to power around 200 heavy-duty trucks or 1,250 passenger vehicles per day. Raven SR’s patented Steam/CO2 Reformation process enables it to be one of the only non-combustion, waste-to-hydrogen processes in the world with a negative carbon intensity generating a California low carbon fuel credit (LCFS) for fueling stations.
The Bay Area sites will also serve as the first two hydrogen hubs in a partnership between Raven SR and Hyzon Motors Inc. to fuel the regional Hyzon fleets, and supply hydrogen for commercial fuel stations in the region.
