About the webinar:
This video features experts from the Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation and the New Energy Industrial Technology Development Organization for a free workshop to understand Japan’s hydrogen market needs for low-cost, low-carbon hydrogen.
Experts from two European projects will discuss the operating experience, best-practices and lessons learned from deploying hydrogen-powered waste collection trucks.
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.
Much has been made of the need to “electrify everything,” but is this really the optimal pathway across the country?
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.
