Canada’s first direct-air carbon capture and green hydrogen plant is being built in Merritt, B.C. The plant, which is being financed by Huron Clean Energy, will produce carbon-neutral fuel.

Green hydrogen and CO2 captured from the atmosphere will be used to make marine, aviation and diesel fuel.

About 620 direct jobs are expected to be created in addition to 340 ongoing jobs for the plant’s operation. More than 4,500 construction jobs will be created during the plant’s build.
