Babcock & Wilcox to supply General Hydrogen from Louisiana-based biomass plant


Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) has agreed to sell up to 15 tonnes of hydrogen per day from its Louisiana-based biomass-fuelled facility to General Hydrogen, a CGI Gases subsidiary.

Under terms of a signed agreement, General Hydrogen will purchase the hydrogen, and CGI Gases will purchase and transport compressed carbon dioxide (CO2) captured during the process.

The facility, scheduled for operation in 2026, will feature B&W’s BrightLoop™ technology that produces hydrogen from virtually any feedstock. The process also produces an isolated CO2 stream for capture, use or sequestration, as well as nitrogen that can be combined with hydrogen to create ammonia.

Joe Buckler, Senior Vice-President of Clean Energy at B&W, said the company is now in the position to play a key role in producing net-negative carbon emissions hydrogen for a variety of uses, including power production, industrial processes, and transportation fuel.
