Hydrogen Production With A Low Carbon Footprint

R-Squared Energy

In a previous article , I analyzed the carbon footprint of producing hydrogen from fossil fuels. That is how over 95% of the world’s hydrogen is currently produced. To recap, the carbon footprint of hydrogen production from natural gas in a steam methane reformer (SMR) is higher than from directly burning the natural gas. The carbon footprint I calculated was 280 grams of carbon dioxide emissions per kilowatt-hour of hydrogen production.

Europe’s Green Hydrogen Revolution Is Turning Blue

GreenTechMedia

Green hydrogen may get all the headlines, but the prospect of it fueling Europe's future hydrogen economy on its own looks increasingly questionable. Blue hydrogen is produced from natural gas, with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology scooping up the resulting CO2. Green hydrogen, in contrast, is produced by using (ideally dirt-cheap) renewable electricity to power an electrolyzer that splits the hydrogen from water molecules.

Estimating The Carbon Footprint Of Hydrogen Production

R-Squared Energy

Hydrogen is the lightest and most abundant element in the universe. When hydrogen is combusted, it forms water. Therefore, hydrogen can be used as a low-carbon fuel source. Hydrogen can be combusted directly, or it can be used in a fuel cell to produce electricity. Since hydrogen produces minimal pollutants when combusted, it is envisioned by many as a core component of a cleaner energy future. Hydrogen Production.
