Clean gas turbine manufacturer Capstone Turbine has collaborated with the US Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory to develop a hydrogen operable microturbine product.

“The initial goal of the testing is to establish the capabilities of our current off-the-shelf production systems,” said Don Ayers, Capstone Turbine’s Senior Director for Engineering and Quality.
“There is a broad global initiative to decarbonise electricity generation through renewable natural gas by blending natural gas and hydrogen in existing pipelines.”
