Blue hydrogen and substitute natural gas seen as leaders in energy transition

A paper published by the Journal of Petroleum Technology suggests hydrogen is the most promising low-carbon-intensity energy vector while substitute natural gas – among hydrocarbon-based fuels – is the most promising and immediate solution.

The potential to obtain low-carbon-intensity hydrogen is seen as a crucial factor toward driving the energy transition and achieving a low-carbon future.

While blue hydrogen can significantly reduced emissions, it still produces some C02. Biohydrogen, on the other hand, is carbon-neutral and derived through modified steam reforming of liquid biofeedstock. It can be carbon negative when enhanced with a carbon-capture system.
