Early days for hydrogen

Gord Crawford tells us once Expander Energy has its permit from Alberta Environment & Parks in hand (soon, he hopes), the company will be able to give a proper update on its biomass synthetic diesel plant it plans to build in the Mitsue Industrial Park. It will start out by using waste wood from Vanderwell Contractors’ sawmill, and maybe expand from there, using other sources of feedstock. That’s the basic story, already reported here and elsewhere.

But there’s more! Last week in a brief phone call, Crawford talked about hydrogen that will be a by-product of the process. There might be opportunities to use it as a fuel for vehicles, he said, although it’s “very early days.”

Stay tuned…
