Please explain how a hydrogen energy plant can produce fertilizer.

One of HECA’s distinguishing factors is its multi-purpose design and process. It starts by creating clean hydrogen, which is produced by gasifying petroleum coke (a low-value by-product that comes from oil refining) and coal. The hydrogen is then used for two purposes: as a clean fuel to generate nearly 300 megawatts of electricity; and to produce a much needed local source of low-carbon fertilizer.

This unique, clean energy process will enable HECA to be among the cleanest, commercial-scale fertilizer manufacturing facilities not only in California but in the entire U.S.

In addition, the local production of fertilizer, valued at $1 billion, will reduce transportation costs and the nation’s dependence on imports. Overall, agricultural end-users in California and the U.S. will benefit in many ways from this new, readily available domestic source of accessible, high-quality fertilizer.
