Toyota to Build Multi-Purpose Hydrogen Plant in California”

It can be generated in a variety of ways, such as using electricity to electrolyze water or separating it from more complex compounds ranging from natural gas to animal waste.

The project will produce enough hydrogen to fuel about 1,500 fuel-cell vehicles a day.

The facility will be 100-percent renewable and supply all Toyota fuel-cell vehicles moving through the port, including new deliveries of the Mirai sedan and Toyota's Heavy-Duty hydrogen fuel-cell class 8 truck.

When the facility comes online in 2020, it is expected to generate approximately 2.35 megawatts of electricity and 1.2 tons of hydrogen per day, which is enough to power 2,350 average-sized homes and meet the daily driving needs of almost 1,500 vehicles. Among entities that have supported it development are the U.S. Department of Energy, the California Air Resources Board, South Coast Air Quality Management District, Orange County Sanitation District, and the University of California at Irvine, where researchers developed some of the core technologies used at the site.

Toyota has been earning kudos for the development of its hydrogen fuel cell-powered semi truck.

Thirty-one retail hydrogen stations are now open for business in California.

Any fuel-cell vehicle, of whatever size, requires a hydrogen fueling infrastructure to operate, however, and the carmaker has had to work consistently to help authorities and private companies deliver that infrastructure in California. Market dynamics that keeps on changing over time and in-depth scrutiny of Electric Vehicles and Fuel Cell Vehicles market sources are also cited. Other automakers building fuel cell cars include Honda Motor Co. Toyota only sells the cars in California.
