Hydrogen generation

H2 from natural gas
Steam reforming

  • Steam reforming - endothermic conversion of methane and water vapour into hydrogen and carbon monoxide

Hydrogen production from biomass and waste

  • Hydrogen - pyrolysis or gasification of biomass (agricultural residues, MSW incl. plastics, grease, energy crops)
  • Pyrolysis - produces bio-oil. Its components can be separated into chemicals and fuels, including hydrogen
  • Gasification à mature technology

Hydrogen production from algae
Photobiological process

  • Hydrogen - could be produced from water using sunlight and microorganisms, such as green algae and cyanobacteria (as part of their metabolic processes)
