Blue hydrogen could deliver significant US emissions reductions, says American Petroleum Institute

The American Petroleum Institute (API) has said that low-carbon hydrogen produced from natural gas with carbon capture could eliminate 180 million tonnes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per year.

In a study commissioned by API, conducted by ICF, analysis is said to have found that uniform incentives for producing hydrogen from natural gas, electricity and other energy sources are critical to meeting the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) goal of 50 million tonnes of clean hydrogen production by 2050.

The Potential Role of Blue Hydrogen in Low-Carbon Energy Markets in the US also predicted that if every tonne of emissions reductions were incentivised in the same way, the US hydrogen market could be three times larger by 2050, with potential to meet 15% of total end energy use.
