Large-scale green hydrogen production facility announced in California

Element Resources has announced its plans to build and operate a major renewable hydrogen production facility in the City of Lancaster in California, less than 100 miles from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Element Resources will produce 20,000 tons of renewable hydrogen annually through its first phase.

The facility, which is targeted to begin commercial operations in early 2025, will use dedicated solar to power Element’s electrolyzers to produce zero-emission, renewable hydrogen. The increased hydrogen production capacity will serve the growing demand for clean mobility fuels as well as clean energy for manufacturing.

“The City of Lancaster is excited to expand our partnership with Element Resources on the largest renewable green hydrogen production project in the U.S.,” said R. Rex Parris, Mayor of the City of Lancaster. “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.”
