The Bridge to Carbon Neutrality
Hydrogen Optimized is the bridge to carbon neutrality. We connect green electricity generation such as solar, wind and hydro with major transportation end users and fossil energy-intensive industries such as ammonia and steel production.
Our RuggedCell water electrolysis technology converts green electricity into Green Hydrogen. The hydrogen can then be used to replace fossil fuels used in chemical, industrial, major transportation and other energy-intensive industries that today emit large amounts of carbon. This enables these hard-to-abate industries to decarbonize.
For example, Green Hydrogen decarbonizes:
- Ammonia production by replacing natural gas
- Steel production by replacing coal/coke
- Maritime shipping by replacing bunker fuel
An expected decline in the Green Hydrogen cost curve toward cost parity with fossil fuels will facilitate mass adoption and use by these and other industries.*
According to a February 2021 McKinsey/Hydrogen Council report, “the EU Hydrogen strategy identifies green hydrogen as the only shade of hydrogen compatible with a net-zero emission system.”*
