A consortium of glassmakers and energy suppliers has submitted a full application for federal funding for hydrogen-powered glassmaking, marking another step forward for the nation's hydrogen-powered glassmaking initiative.
The Great Lakes Clean Hydrogen Consortium (GLCH) has applied to receive $8 billion in new federal funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to establish a regional clean hydrogen center under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
The full application of the Great Lakes Clean Hydrogen Alliance details a $2 billion plan to create a clean hydrogen hub to serve Ohio, Michigan, and parts of Pennsylvania and Indiana. The proposed hydrogen center will use carbon-free nuclear energy to produce clean hydrogen at a competitive cost.
The Hydrogen Center has a defined scope for commercial use and will use proven production technologies to reduce the time required to fully produce 100+ metric tons of hydrogen per day.
One of the members of the alliance is the Glass Manufacturing Council (GMIC), which represents US glass producers.
The Great Lakes Clean Hydrogen Consortium is led by Linde, who is also the lead applicant; the hydrogen centers include Energy Harbor, Cleveland-Cliffs, General Aerospace, the University of Toledo, and the Glass Manufacturing Council.
The Great Lakes Clean Hydrogen Consortium includes companies that are ready to replace fossil fuels with clean hydrogen at any time.
The Great Lakes Clean Hydrogen Alliance has been collaborating with the states of Ohio and Michigan, technology providers, hydrogen consumers, state and regional academic institutions, national laboratories, and nonprofit organizations.
The Great Lakes Clean Hydrogen Coalition's application includes letters of support from local labor unions, educational institutions, community organizations, economic development organizations, and local, state, and federal government officials.
