Start date:
May 2022

Project summary description:
This project aims to determine the advantages found in combined production of blue and green hydrogen, with oxygen by-product of electrolysis used as feedstock to an Autothermal Reforming (ATR) process, in comparison to hydrogen production via electrolysis. The primary factors considered in this comparison are cost and carbon intensity, although practical considerations will also be accounted for.
