Low carbon hydrogen

The Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy published by HM Government in March 2021, defines low carbon hydrogen as: ‘Hydrogen that is produced with significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to current methods of production – methods include reacting methane with steam to form hydrogen and then capturing the carbon dioxide by-product (steam methane reformation with CCUS) or using renewable electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen (electrolysis).’
