A $1.3-billion hydrogen plant may be constructed in Edmonton to produce clean-burning fuel from natural gas.

The governments of Canada and Alberta have signed an agreement with Air Products Canada to build the plant, subject to the completion of agreements in signed memorandums of understanding among the parties and with the necessary permit approvals.

If the project goes forward, hydrogen-fuelled electricity and liquid hydrogen for transportation would be produced for transportation. The plant could be operative by 2024 and create about 2,500 jobs.

Natural gas produced in Alberta would see about a 95 per cent carbon reduction by Air Products.

    This publicity by the fossil fuel sector is a con.
