Babcock & Wilcox and Black Hills Energy to develop Wyoming clean hydrogen plant


Energy technologies business Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) and the utility Black Hills Energy have received a $16m grant from the Wyoming Energy Authority to fund permitting, engineering and development activities for a clean hydrogen generation facility with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and sequestration. The project is slated for Black Hills Energy’s Neil Simpson Power Plant in Gillette, Wyoming.

The plant design is planned to use B&W’s BrightLoop technology to produce clean energy from coal, while CO2 emissions will be sequestered or utilised. As designed, the plant will be capable of producing 15 tonnes of clean hydrogen per day, utilising the BrightLoop process, which is a patented chemical looping system.

“We’re excited that this important project is advancing to the next phase of development, and we thank the State of Wyoming and the Wyoming Energy Authority for supporting our efforts,” said B&W Chief Technology Officer Brandy Johnson.
