Air Liquide Hydrogen Energy is seeking California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) certification of two pathways for gaseous hydrogen produced by steam methane reformation (SMR) produced onsite at the LAX hydrogen station, using average North American landfill gas and fossil natural gas (NA NG), respectively.
- The pathway for gaseous hydrogen from landfill gas from onsite SMR at the LAX station and dispensed in vehicles carries a calculated carbon intensity (CI) of 158.25 gCO2e/MJ.
The pathway for gaseous hydrogen from NA fossil natural gas from onsite SMR at the LAX station and dispensed in vehicles carries a calculated carbon intensity (CI) of 176.43 gCO2e/MJ.
Separately, AMP Americas, LLC is seeking certification of a Tier 2 pathway for biomethane production at Renewable Dairy Fuels (RDF), from anaerobic digestion of dairy manure at Fair Oaks 2.
The biomethane is pipeline-injected and supplied to CNG vehicles in California. The pathway carries a calculated CI of -255.74 gCO2e/MJ.

. . . The H2One Station Unit made by Toshiba ESS is a system which produces hydrogen using electric power generated by renewable energy and supplies hydrogen to fuel cell vehicles. The system is capable of producing enough hydrogen for eight hydrogen fuel cell vehicles per day in three minutes at the fastest speed.
Tsuruga City and Toshiba ESS have been studying about the construction of a supply chain in the city. Following H2One—a one-container model—the H2One Multi Station will start operation for supplying green electricity to electric vehicles and to Tsuruga City’s public wholesale market.

Everfuel Europe A/S has been awarded in excess of €6 million from the Danish Energy Agency for the project HySynergy, which aims to establish a large-scale, electrolysis-based hydrogen production facility at the Shell refinery in Fredericia, Denmark.
Everfuel will be the owner and operator of the hydrogen production facility, while Shell will be main off-taker of hydrogen from the electrolyzer. Everfuel will also install hydrogen storage, trailer filling stations and operate hydrogen trailers to supply hydrogen fuel in Denmark.
The parties will continue to work on permits and agreements related to the project, and are expecting to provide further details on the project during first half of 2020. Initial capacity of the electrolyzer will be 20 MW, while the location at Fredericia will be prepared to accommodate for a capacity increase of up to 1GW.
- We have been working on this project for a couple of years now, and are delighted to see that Jacob Krogsgaard and his team in Everfuel are taking another important step towards realizing renewable hydrogen production next to the refinery in Fredericia. The facility will act as a back-bone for renewable hydrogen supply in Denmark, both for the refinery itself, and also for light- and heavy-duty fuel cell electric vehicles operating in the area.
—Jon André Løkke, CEO of Nel, which holds a minority interest in Everfuel
It's not clear to me if this last is renewable H2 or not. It says it's electrolysis so I'm not sure why it would need to be at a refinery, but maybe that was just the most convenient place with the necessary room for storage, appropriate safety protocols and a large-scale demand.
