World’s first hydrogen-power

World’s first hydrogen-powered cargo vessel to set sail in Paris this year

In a world's first, a commercial hydrogen-powered cargo vessel will make its maiden voyage later this year. Developed by French shipowner Compagnie Fluvial Transport (CFT), the vessel will be the world’s first cargo ship to run on hydrogen and is set to be deployed on the river Seine in Read More...

Can hydropower help clean up c

Can hydropower help clean up commercial ammonia production?

Ammonia is a colorless, noxious gas that is a compound of nitrogen and hydrogen. It is used for a number of different things from producing dyes to treating wastewater, but it’s most common industrial use in the production of fertilizer. Although useful, the production of ammonia is anything Read More...

Sweden will soon become home to world’s first fossil-free steel plant

Every ton of steel produced in 2020 emitted on average 1.9 tons of carbon dioxide, equating to about 8 percent of the planet’s total carbon footprint. This makes it a key target for the world’s decarbonization efforts, and it’s one of the key areas where hydrogen could play a vital role in Read More...

This company is creating ethical diamonds from captured CO2 and rainwater

Diamonds may be beautiful, but the industry behind it is not. To start with, there are the terrible environmental consequences that come with mining for diamonds. The Guardian reports that to get just one carat (0.2 grams) of a traditional diamond, miners could excavate up to 2.2 million pounds Read More...

Scientists use microwaves to turn plastic waste into clean hydrogen

One of the main contributors to plastic pollution is the ubiquity of difficult-to-recycle plastic packaging such as plastic bags, milk bottles, and sachets. Because they are such a pain to recycle, most of these single-use plastics end up in landfills or waterways, polluting the environment as a Read More...

This 100% energy self-sufficient boat transforms seawater into hydrogen fuel

Somewhere in the vast ocean, a little boat covered in solar panels is doing something extraordinary: making its own hydrogen fuel from the seawater underneath it. Built as a proof of concept, the boat hopes to make a case for hydrogen as a clean-energy alternative to fossil fuels. Though it has Read More...

Could a trash-to-hydrogen plan

Could a trash-to-hydrogen plant realize the dream of green hydrogen fuel?

Hydrogen fuel has seemingly fallen off the radar considering all the hype that surrounded this potentially sustainable fuel source in past years. Other than a blatant lack of infrastructure, a big problem with hydrogen fuel is that we haven’t figured out a way to produce hydrogen fuel in a clean, Read More...
