Element Resources to build one of California’s largest renewable hydrogen production facilities in Lancaster
Element Resources plans to build and operate a major renewable hydrogen production facility in the City of Lancaster, further expanding the duo’s relationship to build one of California’s largest green hydrogen production facilities.
The project, located within Lancaster’s city limits, is less than 100 miles from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and will supply end-users throughout the greater Los Angeles Region. Element Resources will produce 20,000 tons of renewable hydrogen annually through its first phase. This facility will also be one of the anchor projects in the City of Lancaster’s Eastside Overlay, which will be the site of the city’s burgeoning clean energy portfolio.
The facility, which is targeted to begin commercial operations in early 2025, will use dedicated solar to power Element’s electrolyzers to produce zero-emission, renewable hydrogen. The increased hydrogen production capacity will serve the growing demand for clean mobility fuels as well as clean energy for manufacturing.The project will create about 250 jobs during the construction phase, and 36 permanent jobs.
