Hydrogen Production Opportunities in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland

Thursday, January 19, 2023

Presenter: Mark Plamondon, Executive Director, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association

Moderator: Kelsey Brooks, Policy Analyst, Natural Resources Canada

Join Mark Plamondon of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association to learn more about Alberta’s Industrial Heartland, one of the world’s most attractive locations for chemical, petrochemical, oil, and gas investment, located near Edmonton. As Canada’s largest hydrocarbon processing region, the Industrial Heartland underpins industrial investment with carbon capture and storage infrastructure, the world’s largest CO2 pipeline, advanced infrastructure, and ground-breaking innovation. With $45+ billion in existing capital investment and more than 40 companies, the AIH provides fuels, fertilizers, power, petrochemicals and more to provincial and global consumers.

Learn about hydrogen production within the Industrial Heartland and find out how this 582 square-kilometer region is creating opportunities for decarbonization pathways.

Hydrogen and the Decarbonization of Steel Production in Canada

To convert iron ore into the iron required for steelmaking, the Canadian steel industry primarily relies on coal, coke, and natural gas in large blast furnaces. Currently responsible for approximately 2% of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions, the steel industry is committed to reaching net-zero emissions by 2050, but reaching those goals will require innovative new approaches to steel production.
Case Study: Hydrogen Fuel Cells in Port Trucking Operations

Case Study: Hydrogen Fuel Cells in Port Trucking Operations

The Port of Los Angeles, in conjunction with Kenworth Truck Company, Toyota, Shell, and others , recently demonstrated a collaborative zero-emission goods movement project focused on the use of hydrogen fuel cells in heavy-duty trucks for port service. The project exhibited supply chain transport from “Shore to Store” utilizing zero-emission advanced technology. The Shore to Store project is funded with a $41,122,260 grant from the California Air Resources Board and an additional $41,426,612 in matching contributions from project partners. The presentation will discuss the project results and showcase the potential of hydrogen as a zero-emissions fuel platform for heavy-duty goods movement.
