From United States
Maturity stage TRL 7 - Prototype testing in the real world

Natural hydrogen is a newly discovered geological source of sustainable and non-fossil energy. It is generated by a natural geochemical process deep inside the Earth'crust, making it a sustainable and inexhaustible source. Natural Hydrogen is still a little-known source of energy but some projects are already set-up and produce natural hydrogen in industrial quantities. It is the cheapest solution to produce carbon-neutral hydrogen and is competitive with fossil fuels. Its value chain is similar to natural gas production. It includes prospection, selection of sites, drilling, extraction and separation of products. It is important to note that environmental protection is a top priority for the implementation of the Solution, which is why Natural hydrogen does not require using controversial techniques like hydraulic fracturing.

The Environmental Benefits

  • Extraction and use of every kilogram of natural hydrogen prevents emissions of 7.7 kilograms of carbon dioxide
  • Natural hydrogen is expected to be cheaper than the current cheapest hydrogen (which is around $2/kg), produced by the process called steam methane reforming
  • Hydrogen is constantly generated in the Earth's depths and the current estimates of the flux give 23 million ton of H2 per year from all geological sources combined
  • 99% reduction of carbon emissions resulting from manufacturing hydrogen
  • 100% reduction of particle and NOx emissions resulting from use of fossil fuels

The Financial Benefits

  • 33% cheaper than cheapest hydrogen from fossil fuels
  • 2 times cheaper than cheapest green hydrogen
