Raven SR Inc. announced the selection of POWER Engineers, Inc. and Stellar J Corporation to complete the final design, engineering and fabrication of the company’s first commercial renewable fuels production facilities, to be located in the San Francisco Bay area. The facilities will convert a blend of green waste and food waste into green hydrogen for the commercial transportation market. The first two Raven SR facilities will be fully operational by summer 2022
“We are excited to be working with POWER and Stellar J, two extremely experienced engineering and fabrication firms to build our first renewable fuels production facilities,” said Matt Murdock, Raven SR CEO. “Both firms have a solid understanding of the energy industry and specifically, the renewable fuels sectors.”
Raven SR’s first commercial systems will produce up to 10 tons/day of renewable hydrogen (enough to power around 200 heavy-duty trucks or 1,250 passenger vehicles per day) from a blend of green waste and food waste that is being diverted from landfilling, with a negative carbon intensity generating a California low carbon fuel credit (LCFS) for fueling stations. Raven SR’s patented Steam/CO2 Reformation process enables it to be one of the only non-combustion, waste-to-hydrogen processes in the world.
POWER Engineers will complete the final engineering and design of the units. The company has extensive experience in industrial chemicals and manufacturing, facility design, and environmental services. Their projects have included complex continuous process systems, as well as renewable and conventional generation and transmission system design to support economic growth on all continents.
Stellar J will be fabricating the Raven SR units for installation at the two waste and material processing sites. It was involved in public and private initiatives, with engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), and design, bid and build structures, including biogas energy projects, digesters, landfill construction, and wastewater treatment plants.
The Bay Area sites will also serve as the first two hydrogen hubs in a partnership between Raven SR and Hyzon Motors Inc. to fuel the regional Hyzon fleets, and supply hydrogen for commercial fuel stations in the region. Hyzon and Raven SR previously announced the co-development of 100 of hydrogen hubs in the U.S. and internationally.
