Alternative Hydrogen Production
Hydrogen can be used as a zero-emission fuel burned with oxygen. https://cleanhydrogenconference.com/
Hydrogen is a very important raw material of the future, presently it is used as feedstock for fertilizer production and methanol production, but more processes will adapt and the circular economy will enhance the role of hydrogen significantly. As a renewable transport fuel the commercial use of Hydrogen has taken of in applications to replace diesel in public busses, heavy transport and -moving equipment.
As the production of Hydrogen is energy intensive, a direct connection to renewable energy sources is required. A lot of research and development is done to create Clean Hydrogen, which can be done in two ways, electrochemical and thermochemical.
Normally, green hydrogen is produced via water electrolysis on renewable power. Electrolysis is an excellent process to capture potential oversupply in green energy production and solve various problems of transporting this energy, however its variable production and difficulty to transport and store provides a challenge for the chemical industry. Therefore alternatives should be developed since one can not solve all the hydrogen demand issues via electrolysis
