Monolith, a pioneer in green hydrogen and clean materials manufacturing, announced plans to add around 200 employees—many in chemistry and engineering roles—over the next 18 months to keep up with the company’s rapid expansion.
The hiring push will bring top talent in green energy and clean material manufacturing to the Lincoln, Nebraska area, where Monolith’s headquarters and Olive Creek manufacturing facility are located.
This huge recruiting objective was fueled by Monolith’s year of rapid expansion, which included the start-up of its first commercial-scale green hydrogen and clean carbon black production facility. Monolith has revealed plans for a second ammonia manufacturing facility and secured millions of dollars in investment backing from global clean energy companies.
“Producing clean materials like green hydrogen, clean carbon black and carbon-free ammonia in support of a sustainable energy future doesn’t happen without some of the most talented and innovative minds in the business,” said Rob Hanson, Monolith’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “At Monolith, we’re passionate about creating a green world, but also creating a company culture that challenges employees to pursue their passions and then rewards them well for doing so.”
“This is an exciting time for the State of Nebraska,” said Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts. “High-paying clean energy jobs like those at Monolith play a critical role in our state’s economic growth, and we’re proud to see a Nebraska company at the forefront of innovative technology with global impact.”
The hiring initiative was revealed today in Lincoln, as Monolith unveiled a new corporate identity. The redesigned corporate website and logo reflect Monolith’s pioneering position in green hydrogen and clean materials production.
Monolith, created in 2012, invented a process method that converts natural gas to clean hydrogen and carbon black, a vital raw material in the automotive and industrial sectors. In Hallam, Nebraska, the firm is now operating its first commercial-scale manufacturing facility. Along with green hydrogen and carbon black, the company revealed plans for a second phase of manufacturing of clean ammonia in late 2020.
When the expansion is complete in 2024, Monolith expects to produce 275,000 metric tons of clean anhydrous ammonia and 194,000 metric tons of clean carbon black, resulting in an estimated annual reduction of up to 1 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional manufacturing processes.
