MMEX Resources to use solar to produce hydrogen in Texas

February 22, 2021 |

In Texas, MMEX Resources intends to develop solar energy to power multiple planned projects producing hydrogen and ultra-low sulfur fuels combined with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture in Texas.

Jack W. Hanks, President and CEO of MMEX Resources Corp, announced a modified business plan moving MMEX to clean energy use and production.

“The company plans to contribute to the clean energy solution by providing solar power to produce hydrogen with carbon capture, and for the transition to the hydrogen economy by producing hydrogen along with ultra-low sulfur transportation fuels in the interim.” “We are planning multiple solar generation projects in our West Texas environs serving multiple locations in Texas,” continued Hanks “As previously announced, we formed MMEX Solar Resources in 2018 to develop a solar power project to supply potentially solar power renewable energy to our planned refinery projects. We are now modifying our planned refinery projects to produce potentially hydrogen, ultra-low sulfur fuel products combined with CO2 capture. In addition, we have entered preliminary discussions to lease or purchase additional acreage allowing us  to develop additional megawatts of solar power for distribution in Texas. Preliminary discussions are underway also to acquire potentially additional hydrogen projects plant site locations in East Texas, Houston ship channel area and the Corpus Christi-Rockport area. If successful, these multiple solar and processing projects would greatly enhance the MMEX footprint as a first mover in an integrated clean energy space.
