Blue, Green… Turquoise? Carbon-To-Value And Sustainability In The Hydrogen Palette

Rachel Meidl and Ken Medlock of The Baker Institute write in Forbes about the potential benefits of turquoise hydrogen.

The C3 Take
  • Turquoise hydrogen, which creates clean hydrogen and solid carbon, could be useful in tapping into current supply chains with clean energy.
  • The solid carbon created from turquoise hydrogen could be used across different economic sectors including construction and agriculture.
  • While turquoise hydrogen still faces regulatory and technological challenges, it could be a key to a clean energy transition.

“’Turquoise’ hydrogen presents an interesting opportunity because it introduces a carbon-to-value proposition that can improve the commercial viability of the technology. In particular, the solid carbon that is recovered during hydrogen production via pyrolysis can be used in existing applications that involve carbon black, graphite, carbon fiber, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), graphene and other derivatives.  Moreover, it can be applied in various applications, ranging from new advanced carbon materials to soil amendments, across different economic sectors, such as construction, transportation, and agriculture.”
