WHY HYDROGEN?

HYDROGEN: THE FUEL OF THE FUTURE

Hydrogen is a natural gas and a clean alternative to methane, forming 75% of all mass within the universe — making it one of the most plentiful resources in the galaxy. Present in every molecule of all living things, this amazing energy source can be found in water, animals, plants, and even humans.

Hydrogen can be created through renewable methods like solar, wind and biogas — involving the breakdown of organic matter such as food scraps or wood waste. Through the advancement of hydrogen capabilities, it has become the prime solution for countries and companies worldwide committing to net-zero.

TYPES OF HYDROGEN

We can classify hydrogen in one of two ways — carbon-based and emissions free.

Emission Generating Hydrogen

Grey:
Grey hydrogen is created by burning finite supplies of natural gas, emitting damaging carbon emissions into the ozone layer.

Brown:
Brown hydrogen is made by burning coal, discharging harmful carbon emissions into the atmosphere.

Zero Emission Generating Hydrogen

Green:
Green hydrogen is made by using clean electricity from surplus renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind power, to electrolyse water. Electrolysers use an electrochemical reaction to split water into its components of hydrogen and oxygen, emitting zero-carbon dioxide in the process.

Blue:
Blue hydrogen is produced by heating natural gases, with all emissions being captured and safely stored.

Production of H2 from pyrolysis is as follows:

A more recent addition to the hydrogen-production palette is turquoise. This is produced by processing biomass into hydrogen and solid carbon using a process called pyrolysis.

Turquoise hydrogen is very low in terms of emissions because the carbon is either buried or used for industrial processes such as steelmaking or battery manufacturing, so it doesn’t escape into the atmosphere. Considering the entire carbon cycle - Turquoise Hydrogen is a Carbon negative process.
