Hydrogen can be used as a fuel and this presents opportunities to decarbonise the electricity, transport and domestic heating sectors as well as applications which require extensive heat input i.e. steel and cement production. Hydrogen can be made using a number of processes with different environmental impacts and costs. Hydrogen from electrolysis i.e. wind and solar energy (green hydrogen) is currently the most mature technology in the market. In comparison, hydrogen production from biomass is still at pilot scale, but has the potential to provide negative net emissions through Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS). Regardless of production methodology, it is necessary to provide the infrastructure to handle the fuel efficiently and safely, as industrial production is accelerated from current levels. It is also important to consider how hydrogen production, distribution and use will align with or impact on other fuel and energy production pathways.

Plug Power and Johnson Matthey (JM) have announced a partnership to provide services to the green hydrogen production sector. JM are a leading producer of catalysts and membranes for the production of...
