Hydrogen and Fuel Cells 2007: International Conference & Trade Show
Vancouver, BC, Canada, April 29 - May 02, 2007
Visit of the Integrated Waste Hydrogen Utilization Project (IWHUP)
IWHUP is the first project to demonstrate the entire chain of capturing, distributing and utilizing by- product hydrogen and state of the art technologies that use hydrogen. The project strengthens the lead that BC, and Canada have in the Hydrogen Economy and allows BC to verify the technology “at home” readying it for export to communities and countries that are starting off on their own Hydrogen journey.
Here we could see how hydrogen was extracted and purified from an existing but currently untapped source of hydrogen, as the by-product of a sodium chlorate manufacturing plant in North Vancouver.
Ms. Leigh Hassis, Communication & Business Dvelopment from Sacre-Davey Innovations, Inc., North Vancouver, B.C., was guiding us to three locations:
