Superior Propane to distribute hydrogen in Quebec

January 12, 2022 By    

Superior Propane, a subsidiary of Superior Plus Corp., and Charbone Corp. are collaborating to provide hydrogen fuel to commercial and industrial customers initially in Quebec, Canada.

Superior and Charbone say they will leverage their expertise in mobile energy distribution and “green” hydrogen production, respectively, to make hydrogen fuel an affordable and convenient energy option for companies looking to reduce carbon emissions, use green sources of energy and achieve sustainability goals across multiple industry sectors.

Under the terms of the letter of intent between the parties, Charbone will provide Superior with hydrogen fuel from its Sorel-Tracy, Quebec, facility with initial deliveries expected in the third quarter of 2022.

“We are excited to be working with Charbone to offer green hydrogen to customers in Quebec, Canada,” says Luc Desjardins, Superior’s president and CEO, in a press release. “Superior’s safety record, logistics network and best-in-class mobile energy distribution platform will enable Charbone to continue to expand its hydrogen supply business. Superior’s access to Charbone’s green hydrogen production will allow us to sell cost-effective green energy to current and new customers and aligns with our larger strategy to offer alternative energy products, including green and low-carbon energy alternatives, to our customers by leveraging our existing energy distribution business.”

Superior Propane’s energy distribution business will be responsible for delivering hydrogen directly from Charbone’s facility to Superior’s customers. These customers include mining, power generation, transportation and industrial energy users. The arrangement is subject to negotiation and completion of the terms of definitive agreements and the construction of the Sorel-Tracy, Quebec, facility.

“The combination of Superior’s expertise in delivering portable energy solutions to a wide variety of industries with Charbone’s production of green hydrogen will be a game changer related to the availability of zero-carbon energy offerings to customers in Quebec,” says Rick Carron, president of Superior Propane.

“Our agreement with Superior to build an exclusive partnership is a very important milestone in the history of Charbone Corp.,” says Dave Gagnon, chairman and CEO of Charbone. “The resulting agreement from this partnership will allow both parties to produce, develop, sell and distribute green hydrogen throughout an extensive network and offer Canadian industries a new alternative clean energy solution.”
