California Regulators/CAB putting out Mandate Refiners & Marketers add Hydrogen fueling and remove fueling tanks at thier cost!
Are you kidding me – just when I think those idiots cannot get any crazier they go into straight-jackets! This should pretty well put them out of refining/oil business & walking in California.
Sure does clarify why all majors were selling plants/relocating headquarters – they were already underwater doing the partial H2 sites that were tied into Air Products distribution lines. Where do these masterminds think all H2 will come from when current suppliers close plants/eleminate offgas and lot high sales for H2 for plants avoided putting in their own? Air Products had only about half capacity for market for its commercial generating plants – rest was from waste gas of refineries, cement & power plants!
I would rate this a double down on the dumb-butt moves. Wonder what a bankrupt California is going to do with another huge hit to its tax coffers when these guys exit. Don’t think they will be importing H2 from China/elsewhere.
