Plasma technology can be used to produce hydrogen from methane without CO2 emission, while also forming useful hydrocarbon compounds. This process involves heating to a high temperature using a plasma instead of natural gas.Continue reading “Hydrogen, electrification and circularity – a plasma chemistry perspective Part 2”
Most hydrogen today is produced from fossil fuels – steam methane reforming of natural gas, partial oxidation of coal or oil residues – and entails large CO2 emissions, from 8.5 tons of CO2 per ton of H2 from natural gas in modern facilities up to 20 tCO2/tH2 from coal. This fossil hydrogen can be called “grey hydrogen”.Continue reading “What is turquoise, or green-blue Hydrogen?”
Tech start-up C-Zero splits methane into hydrogen and solid carbon, eliminating much of the greenhouse-gas impact.
C-Zero’s technology uses innovative thermocatalysis to split methane – the primary molecule in natural gas – into hydrogen and solid carbon in a process known as methane pyrolysis.Continue reading “Bill Gates-Led Fund Backs Clean Hydrogen start-up”
