Pyrolysis to supply most clean hydrogen in 2050 - study

Most of the emissions-free hydrogen in Europe in 2050 will come from natural gas through a technique that cracks natural gas into hydrogen and solid carbon, a new study suggests

Most of the emissions-free hydrogen in Europe in 2050 will come from natural gas through a technique that cracks natural gas into hydrogen and solid carbon, a new study suggests.

The study, which was commissioned by the German gas industry trade association Zukunft EEDGAS, was presented in Brussels last week by Pöyry Management Consulting.

It is the first European decarbonisation study to consider methane pyrolysis as a third hydrogen production method, alongside steam methane reforming (SMR) with CCS and electrolysis with renewables.
