Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) signed a teaming agreement with Newpoint Gas to provide advanced hydrogen generation, decarbonization and combustion technologies for the redevelopment of the former U.S. Department of Energy Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant site near Piketon, Ohio.

B&W will supply its BrightLoop technology to produce hydrogen and isolate carbon dioxide for storage and will supply a steam generator utilizing the company’s BrightGen hydrogen combustion technology to produce clean, near-zero emissions energy.

When complete, the $1.51 billion h2Trillium Energy and Manufacturing complex will operate as an integrated energy decarbonized hydrogen and closed-loop manufacturing facility, generating clean hydrogen and capturing carbon dioxide for long-term storage or beneficial use.
