HALO Hydrogen Hub

HALO Hydrogen Hub

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 (IIJA) emphasized the “…critical part in the comprehensive energy portfolio of the United States” that hydrogen plays and noted that it can be produced from a variety of clean sources, including renewables and fossil fuels with carbon capture utilization and storage.

The IIJA will appropriate up to $7 billion to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for the development of regional clean hydrogen hubs that demonstrate the production, processing, delivery, storage, and end-use of clean hydrogen. In response, Governors Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, John Bel Edwards of Louisiana, and Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma announced a bipartisan three-state partnership, known as the HALO Hydrogen Hub, to compete for funding set forth in IIJA.

Employing public-private partnerships that lead to the deployment and development of an extensive hydrogen network across the three constituent states, HALO’s goals support transformative technologies and investments that will drive lower costs and increase adoption of hydrogen to reduce carbon and other emissions.

LSB Industries is one of the nation’s leading producers of ammonia – a chemical compound containing both hydrogen and nitrogen. With our headquarters in Oklahoma City and manufacturing facilities in Pryor, Oklahoma and El Dorado, Arkansas, and our announced clean energy projects at both locations, it was natural for us to be a part of the HALO Hub. We are excited about working with the leadership of all three states and the potential the HALO Hub brings to the region.
