Yosemite Clean Energy to receive $1 million from the state of California for forest biomass to hydrogen projects
Yosemite’s applications were scored #1 and #2 out of the 8 projects selected to receive funding, as Yosemite has been a leader in hydrogen biofuel development.
The first grant will support Yosemite’s flagship project in Oroville, CA, and will help bring Yosemite to a final investment decision; the plant will produce 24 tons of renewable hydrogen per day. The second grant will support preliminary engineering for Yosemite’s Tuolumne County hydrogen project.
Yosemite Clean Energy has secured its first plant site for commercial-scale production
Each Yosemite Clean Energy biofuels plant will be locally owned by farmers and forest landowners, who in return will provide wood waste, gathered at the end of the orchard's lifecycle or through sustainable forest management.
Vice-President for Business Development Robert Jackson said, "This is new. This type of ownership in biofuels facilities like ours is the democratization of clean energy. We're providing an all-new mineral right from a waste stream and converting it to a revenue stream for farmers and forest communities."
