A new facility in Lancaster, California provides a solution two of the world's greatest problems: climate change caused by greenhouse gasses and plastic pollution.

Lancaster, a city located about 70 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, has teamed up with SGH2 Energy Global to build a green hydrogen plant that's three times larger than any in the world. The facility will take plastic and recycled paper and transform it into hydrogen.

The hydrogen can be used to fuel clean vehicles and also be used as electricity.

The company is currently in negotiations with "California's largest owners and operators of hydrogen refueling stations" to provide hydrogen power to all of the state's 42 hydrogen refueling stations. The goal is to then raise that number to 100 and, eventually, to 1,000 stations.
