How can hydrogen ride the sustainability wave?

The Hydrogen market is expected to expand significantly in the next few years – GlobalData has tracked more than 43.6 mtpa of total active and upcoming low carbon hydrogen production capacity (green and blue hydrogen). As the industry develops and the cost of producing hydrogen drops, demand is expected to increase significantly. As a result, countries across the world are announcing much needed supporting policy framework for hydrogen. While refining and ammonia production have traditionally been the key consumer sectors for hydrogen, new uses such as transport and energy storage are set to influence the market. While green hydrogen presently has a small share in the overall production mix, it is poised to increase given the ambitious targets announced by various countries. GlobalData’s report provides insights into key issues in the emerging hydrogen space, such as:
  • Hydrogen value chain
  • Demand drivers
  • Key application areas
  • Technology trends

It is hoped that the CSS Test Centre Network will help facilities share knowledge of technological developments, and construction and operational experience.

The network aims to establish performance indicators and promote technology standardisation, while helping technology vendors cut down on technical, environmental and financial risks associated with CCS.

CCS technology is capable of reducing carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion in power generating plants and industrial processes by almost 90%.

TCM chairman and Gassnova CEO Tore Amundsen said that the network has been launched at "the right time".

"Every day, in test centres around the world, we see advancements in CCS technology with new experiences, lessons and solutions being developed," Amundsen said.

"However, this knowledge is often not shared because there has been no appropriate forum for doing so. This network will change that for the benefit of everyone."

The founding members of the network are TCM, US-based National Carbon Capture Center, Southern Company’s 25MW CCS demonstration facility, SaskPower, Japan’s J-Power, ENEL Engineering and Research, E.ON and UK-based Doosan Power Systems.

TCM is a joint venture between the Norwegian state and energy companies Statoil, Shell and Sasol. With two CO2 capture plants, the centre could capture 80,000t of CO2.
