Converting Biogas to Hydrogen to Run Military Fuel Cell Vehicles

A project has been successfully completed between GTI Energy and the Department of Defense to condition wastewater treatment biogas into a high-quality biomethane fuel that is converted to hydrogen (via steam reforming) to operate military base vehicles with hydrogen-powered fuel cells. Hydrogen generated at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM)’s water treatment plant was used to power 19 fuel cell forklifts and a fuel cell shuttle bus for a 12 month demonstration. GTI Energy designed, built and installed the waste gas clean-up system and hydrogen generation infrastructure at JBLM.
