Missouri S&T is partnering with industry, business groups and academic institutions to form the Greater St. Louis and Illinois Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub Industrial Cluster to promote clean energy in the industrial sector. The group will collaborate on developing infrastructure for hydrogen fuels and will use cutting-edge technology to help individual businesses meet decarbonization goals to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions for the region by 2035.

Dr. Fatih Dogan, professor of materials science and engineering and Missouri S&T's lead researcher on the project, says S&T's role in the collaborative is to drive innovation in hydrogen technologies and clean energy by teaming industry with S&T's world-class research teams and students.

"The opportunity to access talent and to mentor and train students for work in industry will earn a high return on investment through jointly funded research," says Dogan.

In addition to Missouri S&T, the newly formed group's members include Ameren, Burns McDonnell, MPLX LP (and its sponsor, Marathon Petroleum Corp.), Marquis Industrial Complex, Alton Steel, Walmart, Mitsubishi Power, Plug Power, Spire, Washington University in St. Louis, Greater St. Louis, Inc., and the Leadership Council of Southwestern Illinois. The collaborative is part of a nationwide network of regional hydrogen hubs funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.

The collaborative believes the Greater St. Louis and Illinois region is well positioned to provide continuity with other clean hydrogen hubs through existing infrastructure and natural resources, including navigable rivers such as the Illinois, Missouri and Mississippi; interstate highway connections to other major metropolitan areas including Chicago, Indianapolis and Kansas City; the Port of St. Louis; excellent geology for CO2 storage; natural gas pipeline and delivery systems; and outstanding educational institutions.
