Hydrogen-Fuel maker ECombustible is in talks with Benessere Capital Acquisition Corp for a potential SPAC Deal that could value the combined company between $800 million and $1 billion.
The Miami-based firm is developing a hydrogen-based alternative fuel and is in the process of running industrial-scale tests over the past few months. Interest in hydrogen has been surging over the past few years, with it holding the promise of decarbonizing industries that can’t easily run on electricity, serving as both a fuel and a way to store energy.
When hydrogen is fed through a fuel cell or burned in a turbine, hydrogen can generate electricity without generating greenhouse gas emissions.
Most of the hydrogen that is produced today comes from natural gas, but firms like ECombustible are developing a solution to produce hydrogen from water using renewable power, with no carbon emitted. Renewable hydrogen could potentially power cement and steel factories, cargo ships, and airplanes alike in the future.
