ONLINE TRAINING

The vast majority of hydrogen today is produced from fossil fuel feedstocks (natural gas and coal), producing huge annual carbon dioxide emissions. Thus one proposed route towards a clean hydrogen future is to combine such production with carbon capture and storage technology – producing so-called ‘blue hydrogen’. Another is to move towards alternative pathways that produce easily captured solid carbon rather than carbon dioxide – with ‘turquoise’ hydrogen the resulting co-product.

Over three information-packed sessions, this online course will provide attendees with a solid grounding in these key technologies and the economic, policy, deployment and market-focused issues surrounding them. Technological principles will be presented in language specifically of value to business-focused people. Scalability and other core issues will be illustrated using quantitative calculations and simple models. The market opportunities and differing approaches and challenges to delivering such clean hydrogen projects will be discussed with reference to current and upcoming project examples from around the world.

Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of the opportunities and risks around blue and turquoise hydrogen production, and around carbon capture and storage. Potential limits and barriers to growth will be identified and evaluated, and current and future trends critiqued. So, if you are thinking of investing in or developing a clean hydrogen business, this course provides your essential grounding in these core issues.

Blue and Turquoise Hydrogen Production

A technology primer

  • Production process inputs, outputs and key metrics
  • Potential feedstocks, including both fossil and non-fossil hydrocarbons
  • The current status and future trends of hydrogen production technologies including:
    • SMR,
    • ATR,
    • Pyrolysis
    • Other (for example in-situ gasification)
  • Quantifying issues of scale and scalability (understanding key numbers)

 

Players, project examples and proposals

  • Reviewing market players and prospective value chains: who is driving blue hydrogen?
  • Current activity and its commercial status
  • Future project proposals from around the world: what is known, what is planned and what is needed for them to progress?
  • Summarising the competitive positioning of blue and turquoise hydrogen
