Hydrogen Use Does Not Emit Carbon but its Production Often Does. That Could Soon Change
author FuelCellsWorks, October 20, 2018

What are the main sources of hydrogen today? Until clean hydrogen can be scaled up, producing hydrogen – which in itself is a zero carbon emission fuel or energy carrier – remains heavily dependent on fossil fuels. Today, there are three main sources of hydrogen: Natural gas When the methane in natural gas is heated,...
