A Life-Cycle View of Blue Hydrogen Production
Thursday, July 7, 2022
Moderator: Mark Plamondon, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association
Presenter: Sean McCoy, University of Calgary / The Transition Accelerator
The term “blue hydrogen” is used to describe hydrogen produced from fossil fuels with carbon capture and storage (CCS). However, there are many different process configurations that can be used to make blue hydrogen and, due to the range of upstream emissions associated with the natural gas feedstock, the result is that there are many different shades of blue. In this webinar, we look at different commercially mature technologies for production of blue hydrogen and the resulting range of carbon intensities that could result.
Moderated by Mark Plamondon, executive director of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association, this webinar features a presentation from Sean McCoy, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Calgary and research fellow at The Transition Accelerator. A Q&A session follows.
