The organisation will see the hydrogen delivered via a saturated hydrocarbon known as methylcyclohexane (MCH). With its ‘clean energy’ status, hydrogen emits no carbon dioxide (CO2) and is being investigated on a global scale by multiple industries as a method to reduce carbon emissions.
Using MCH, AHEAD is able to bypass existing supply-and-storage challenges, as MCH, composed of toluene and hydrogen, is a liquid under normal temperature and atmospheric pressure. This allows for storage and transportation using oil refineries, chemical tankers and other existing infrastructure.
