“It provides an alternative to us in dealing with air quality in this basin where we are heavily regulated. The project also ensures us going into the future that we have a technology that can provide power and heat and produces a transportation fuel with no emissions and comes from a renewable source. I think this provides a promising future for our industry,” said Ed Torres, director of Operations and Maintenance for OCSD.
The project was developed as a partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy, California Air Resources Board, the OCSD, and private industry. Besides, the initiative is managed by Air Products and additional partners including FuelCell Energy, Inc. and the National Fuel Cell Research Center at the University of California, Irvine.
