Blue Hydrogen

What is Blue Hydrogen?

Blue hydrogen is a low-carbon hydrogen that is produced from fossil fuels mostly natural gas with the application of Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) technologies in the production process.

Carbon capture, utilization and storage is the process of capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) before it is released into the environment, transporting and using it for several products or storing it for decades. The CO2 can be stored in an underground geological formation or form of mineral carbonates.

It helps to prevent the emission of carbon into the atmosphere when producing hydrogen from fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas.
Blue hydrogen is commonly produced through steam methane reformation with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. Over 80% of carbon is captured and stored in the process.

Steam Methane Reformation

Advantages of blue hydrogen over other types of hydrogen

Lower carbon emission

It is less expensive

The use of blue hydrogen supports the development of the hydrogen economy.

The CO2 produced can be re-used for industrial purposes or stored underground.

It is readily available and can be produced in large quantities due to its extremely high conversion efficiency

Blue hydrogen technology is sufficiently developed and can be used to decarbonize the industrial sectors for now.
