E-commerce giant Amazon has unveiled ambitious plans to manufacture its own hydrogen fuel, marking a significant step toward greening its logistics operations. Teaming up with hydrogen company Plug Power, Amazon is set to kickstart this initiative by installing its inaugural proton exchange membrane electrolyser at a fulfillment center in Colorado, USA.

The one-megawatt electrolyser, a collaboration between Amazon and Plug Power, signifies a crucial move in Amazon's commitment to decarbonize its operations by 2040, aligning with The Climate Pledge. The technology involves splitting water molecules to produce low-carbon hydrogen, specifically designed to power over 225 hydrogen fuel cell-equipped forklift trucks at the chosen facility.

Asad Jafry, Amazon's Director of Global Hydrogen Economy, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership with Plug Power, emphasizing the pivotal role hydrogen plays in achieving their sustainability goals. He highlighted the efficiency gains of on-site hydrogen production, particularly for specific locations and facility types.

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.
