UAE: EGA to decarbonise gas turbines by switching to hydrogen

Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) wants to replace natural gas with hydrogen and hydrogen-blended fuels for combustion in its GE Gas Power turbines.

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) solutions will also be explored as part of the effort, with EGA and GE Gas Power Europe having inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Sunday (Nov 28) for the conversion.
