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

“'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."

These carbon-capturing robotic seaweed farms are like planting forests in the ocean

"Seaweed along coastlines already captures an estimated 173 million metric tons of CO2 each year as it grows; some of that seaweed eventually sinks, trapping the carbon at the bottom of the ocean. Phykos wants to replicate the same process in the open ocean, where kelp doesn’t grow, to vastly increase seaweed’s global level of carbon sequestration."
