Hydrogen From Canadian Project to Power FC at Local Carwash.

Canadian minister of industry David Emerson, member of parliament for North Vancouver, British Columbia Don Bell and Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) official Vicky Sharpe recently announced a $12.2-million contribution to support the demonstration of the Integrated Waste Hydrogen Utilization Project (IWHUP) in the Vancouver, BC area.

The project will demonstrate clean energy solutions that make use of hydrogen emitted as the byproduct of a sodium chlorate manufacturing plant in the North Vancouver area.

As part of IWHUP, local carwash company Easywash, Inc. will serve as the host for the demonstration of a fuel cell (FC) system fueled with hydrogen from the project. The FC will provide the majority of the electricity demands for the carwash, as well as heat the building and the water used to wash vehicles.

This phase of IWHUP is being conducted in partnership with Sacre-Davey Innovations, Inc. and Nuvera Fuel Cells. Other participants in IWHUP include Clean Energy, Dynetek Industries, Ltd., Great West Life Realty Advisors, Hydrogen Technology & Energy Corporation, Powertech Labs, Questair Technologies, Inc. and TransLink.
