Three states are joining forces to create a regional hub to develop and produce hydrogen that will be used as a fuel and for manufacturing feedstock, reports Transport Topics.
Govs. Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma, John Bel Edwards of Louisiana and Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas announced the creation of the bipartisan partnership, which will help the trio compete for federal infrastructure investments funds.
The agreement seeks to promote that investment by prioritizing direct capture of carbon for all phases of low-carbon hydrogen development, and for producing and transporting the fuel.
The states also will work with industry, transportation networks and ports to connect major facilities with high-carbon footprints to hydrogen infrastructure for fuel blending and reduction of CO2 emissions. Read the entire story.
