Development of Affordable, Low-Carbon Hydrogen Supplies at an Industrial Scale
Roddy, Dermot J.
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, v28 n2 p138-142 2008
An existing industrial hydrogen generation and distribution infrastructure is described, and a number of large-scale investment projects are outlined. All of these projects have the potential to generate significant volumes of low-cost, low-carbon hydrogen. The technologies concerned range from gasification of coal with carbon capture and storage to gasification of a range of biomass streams. These biomass streams derive in turn from the supply chains that feed large liquid biofuel production plants--some operational and the others under construction. Having described how such developments are coming together in a particular location to allow accelerated movement toward a hydrogen economy, this article explores the conditions under which similar acceleration could be seen in other locations.
