A HUB Approach to the Challenges of Building a Hydrogen Value Chain

Thursday, May 19, 2022

Moderator: Mark Lea-Wilson, Edmonton Region Hydrogen HUB
Presenter: Kirk Hamilton, C-FER Technologies

Mark Lea-Wilson, Edmonton Region Hydrogen HUB Leader, The Transition Accelerator, and Kirk Hamilton, Senior Engineering Advisor, C-FER Technologies, discuss technical and non-technical challenges associated with building a new hydrogen value chain. Mark reflects on the challenges identified by HUB stakeholders, most of which are non-technical in nature. Next, Kirk discusses the technical gaps C-FER has identified. Finally, they will bring it all together with thoughts on how the challenges can be addressed, leveraging the newly formed Alberta Clean Hydrogen Centre of Excellence. A Q&A session follows.

Hydrogen and the Decarbonization of Steel Production in Canada

To convert iron ore into the iron required for steelmaking, the Canadian steel industry primarily relies on coal, coke, and natural gas in large blast furnaces. Currently responsible for approximately 2% of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions, the steel industry is committed to reaching net-zero emissions by 2050, but reaching those goals will require innovative new approaches to steel production.
