Turquoise H2: Turquoise hydrogen production with methane pyrolysis and solid carbon
Hydrogen production will scale up by several orders of magnitude in the coming decades and the range of low-carbon production technologies will diversify. 

Grey hydrogen today means small modular reactors (SMRs). Blue hydrogen for tomorrow will integrate those with carbon capture and storage (CCS) and see auto thermal reforming (ATRs) become popular. Green and pink hydrogen produced on electrolysers from renewable and nuclear power will play a growing role. All of those are on the radar for the 2020s.

In addition, turquoise hydrogen will also become a mainstream low greenhouse gas emission hydrogen production technology. Turquoise hydrogen is made from methane using pyrolysis (also known as splitting, or cracking). When the process is fed with renewable electricity and biogas it has the potential to be carbon-negative.

This online course will introduce the main technologies for producing turquoise hydrogen and identify the companies leading their development and commercialisation. The course will also explore current and emerging high-scale applications for the solid carbon and graphite that are produced through these processes.
