The Clean Energy Fund of the Washington State Department of Commerce has funded Qualco Energy to deploy a hydrogen generation solution from Modern Electron. The Qualco Energy renewable biogas project in Snohomish County leverages Modern Electron’s cost-efficient and environmentally friendly method for producing clean hydrogen with no CO2 emissions. The clean hydrogen produced by Modern Electron will be utilized for power generation that delivers electricity to a local community of 300 homes.Qualco Energy, a partnership of the Tulalip Tribes, Northwest Chinook Recovery and the Werkhoven Dairy, will deploy Modern Electron’s novel natural gas pyrolysis technology to produce clean hydrogen. Using renewable biogas as the methane feedstock, Modern Electron’s technology delivers hydrogen and high value carbon credits from verifiable carbon sequestration. The Biogas is collected from a dairy anaerobic digester operation. By using the cow manure in a digester instead of applying it directly to farm fields, Qualco helps to prevent the cow manure from being washed into streams and rivers during flood events and helps the dairy to use the nutrients in the manure more efficiently. The biogas from the project is also used to generate electricity used by the Snohomish County Public Utility District Number 1.Modern Electron’s solutions produce hydrogen from biogas and natural gas, both domestic fuels that are readily available and have resilient delivery systems. This approach to reducing CO2 emissions leverages the USA’s vast natural gas network. Combined with Modern Electron technology, existing gas distribution infrastructure is ready to enable wide-scale reductions in CO2 emissions. This existing pipeline capacity will also help electric grid resiliency by enabling distributed power generation with clean hydrogen.
