Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with South Korea-based LowCarbon Hydrogen Corporation to build a research hub for clean hydrogen technology in Florida. The company plans to construct a clean hydrogen facility in Polk County and is set to break ground in June 2023.
“Our state is taking a bold step towards promoting long-term development in the aerospace and space industry across the entire supply chain,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “From manufacturing and launching to fuel production, Florida is the global leader in the new space economy.”
The corporation will work with Space Florida to support the development and deployment of clean hydrogen and related technologies for aerospace and space industry launch applications.
“Florida is where leading aerospace companies get everything they need to see their new idea take off, and with our strategic partnership with LowCarbon Corporation and Ocean Green Hydrogen we are diversifying opportunities across the fuel supply chain,” said Frank DiBello, president and CEO, Space Florida.
