'World first' as hydrogen used to power commercial steel

Apr 28, 2021More than 95% of the world's hydrogen is today derived from natural gas and coal, causing nine to 12 tonnes of CO 2 emissions for every tonne of H 2 produced. Although hydrogen is a clean gas, releasing only water vapour when burned, there is no point replacing the coke, coal or LNG used in steel production with H 2 unless that hydrogen is produced from renewable energy (green)
