US biomass-to-hydrogen plant to store 450,000 tonnes of CO2


California-based clean energy startup Mote has launched its second biomass-to-hydrogen and carbon sequestration plant in Sacramento after having received a $1.2m grant from the US Forest Service, the California Department of Conservation and the California Department of Forestry.

The plant will integrate carbon capture and geological sequestration methods to produce around 21,000 metric tonnes per year of carbon-negative hydrogen.

According to Mote, it will also be capable of storing over 450,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year.

The project will utilise up to 300,000 metric tonnes per year of forest residues and wood waste from regional forest management programmes as feedstock.
