PRINCE GEORGE, BC — A proposed hydrogen project from Chilliwack-based Teralta Hydrogen Solutions is set to create sustainable jobs while driving down emissions and helping solidify Prince George as a hub for hydrogen investment in B.C. …Premier David Eby said “Teralta and their partners, Chemtrade and Canfor Pulp, are leaders in fighting climate change through creative solutions that lower carbon emissions, create good-paying jobs for people, and build healthier communities.” Teralta is planning a clean hydrogen system that will reduce natural gas use at Canfor’s pulp mill by 25%. The system collects byproduct hydrogen from Chemtrade Logistics’ sodium chlorate production facility, purifying and compressing it for use in Canfor’s adjacent pulp mill. This new project is being advanced with a regulatory change the Province recently made that allows gas utilities to acquire hydrogen to replace fossil fuels.
