The Promise of Hydrogen
Hydrogen is the oldest and most abundant element in the universe. Today, hydrogen is used primarily to produce fertilizer to feed the growing world’s population, refine petroleum to create finished products, and generate methanol for transportation. Demand is growing as more sectors transition to hydrogen fuel cells to heat homes and for transport use in cars, buses, trains, ships, planes, and even bicycles.
Though abundant, extracting hydrogen from water, hydrocarbons, and other organic matter can be a challenge. It requires a combination of water + natural gas + electricity.
95% of hydrogen generation is through steam methane reforming, which combines high-temperature steam with natural gas. We’re improving on the large, legacy industrial plants by building smaller, more efficient, modular reformers.
