Total and TES plan US green fuels plant
Total Energies and Tree Energy Solutions are set to build a factory in the US that uses green hydrogen to produce a renewable alternative to natural gas.
The companies today announced plans for the scheme, which could produce 100,000-200,000 metric tonnes of e-natural gas each year. They would first produce green hydrogen by powering a 1GW electrolyser with 2GW of wind and solar power; and then combine the green hydrogen with carbon dioxide to produce the e-natural gas.
A final investment decision on the project is due in 2024.
