INDUSTRIES IN TRANSITION

NATURAL GAS

Natural gas plants can blend hydrogen into their existing pipelines to lower carbon emissions. A number of utility companies have already begun pilot programs for hydrogen blending, and plan to expand to more pipeline locations.

Commercial & passenger vehicles

Green Hydrogen can be used to power hydrogen fuel cell vehicles that can easily fill up on hydrogen at fueling stations just like gas-powered vehicles. Major automobile manufacturers are rolling out hydrogen-powered cars and trucks in expectation of this growing market.

Agriculture

The agriculture industry uses millions of tons of fertilizer, most of which has ammonia as a major ingredient. Ammonia production requires large amounts of hydrogen, produced today using fossil fuels. If green hydrogen were used for fertilizer production, global CO2 emissions could be reduced by over 400 million tons a year.

Steel manufacturing

Steel manufacturing requires a lot of heat, and the most common fuel source is known as “coke” – a high carbon fuel obtained from coal. Green hydrogen can be used instead, dramatically decreasing emissions from steel manufacturing.

Cement and concrete

Much like steel manufacturing, cement and concrete manufacturing uses a lot of heat and emit large amounts of CO2 in the process. Using green hydrogen instead of carbon-based fuels can reduce emissions from concrete and cement manufacturing, which can reduce global emissions by more than 8%.
