Midwest can be ‘powerhouse for low-carbon fuel production’ The aim is to produce clean hydrogen from the Davis-Besse nuclear power station. Courtesy Wikipedia. Energy Harbor has joined forces with the University of Toledo and several industrial companies and US Department of Energy national laboratories to launch the Great Lakes Clean Hydrogen coalition, which aims to produce clean hydrogen using nuclear power from the Davis-Besse nuclear power station in Ohio.

The coalition envisions transforming the Midwest into a powerhouse for low-carbon fuel production. It said it will use nuclear power generated by Energy Harbor’s Davis-Besse nuclear station to produce carbon-free hydrogen through electrolysis.

The coalition said the focus on clean hydrogen production through electrolysis avoids the challenge of capturing and sequestering carbon dioxide. Nuclear reactors can produce clean hydrogen by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen. Methods are being explored to use nuclear energy to produce hydrogen from water by electrolysis, thermochemical, and hybrid processes.

In October 2021, Energy Harbor and the DOE agreed to develop a hydrogen production demonstration project at Davis-Besse in collaboration with Idaho National Laboratory (INL), Xcel Energy, and Arizona Public Service. The plant was chosen due to its proximity to key hydrogen consumers in the manufacturing and transportation sectors of the market.
