Chevron and Cummins Partner on Commerical Hydrogen Research
Chevron USA and Cummins are teaming up to collaborate on developing commercially viable business opportunities in hydrogen and alternative energy sources.
The two signed a memorandum of understanding that outlines four objectives through the project: promoting public policy around hydrogen as a decarbonization strategy, building market demand for commercial vehicles and industrial applications powered by hydrogen, developing infrastructure to support hydrogen vehicles and exploring opportunities to leverage Cummins electrolyzer and fuel cell technologies at one or more of Chevron’s domestic refineries.
“Chevron is committed to developing and delivering affordable, reliable, ever-cleaner energy, and collaborating with Cummins is a positive step toward our goal of building a large-scale business in a lower-carbon area that is complementary to our current offerings,” Andy Walz, president of Chevron’s Americas Fuels & Lubricants, said in a statement. “Hydrogen is just one lower-carbon solution we are investing in that will position our customers to reduce the carbon intensity of their businesses and everyday lives. We’ve also invested in developing and supplying renewable natural gas, blending renewables into our fuels, coprocessing biofeedstocks in our refineries, and abatement projects that will reduce the carbon intensity of our operations.”
