OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, wishes to advise that on
June 9th the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, the Premier of Alberta, and the Mayor of Edmonton, announced their governments are working closely with Air Products Canada Ltd. to advance clean energy in Canada and jointly pursue a transformative $1.3 billion net-zero hydrogen production investment. The clean hydrogen facility would be operational by 2024, a first-mover anchor to secure Canada’s early foothold in the global hydrogen market, pending further discussions and a final scope decision from the company.
The Government of Canada and Invest Alberta have each signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the company on potentially supporting the expansion of its hydrogen network and the transition to clean energy. This would involve the company building a new world-scale facility in the Edmonton region to produce clean hydrogen. This project would enable Air Products Canada Ltd. to produce hydrogen-fuelled electricity and provide liquid hydrogen for the growing transportation market, as well as other key industrial sectors.
