Blue hydrogen can qualify as clean fuel – DNV

Minimising natural gas supply chain emissions critical to role as a sustainable energy carrier, risk management firm says

Blue hydrogen can qualify as a clean fuel under existing taxonomies but this will depend heavily on reducing CO₂ and methane emissions in the natural gas supply chain, risk management firm DNV says in a paper published this week. “The results of our analysis show that blue hydrogen can be delivered with a lower [greenhouse gas] footprint than the thresholds in the taxonomy as defined by the EU and World Business Council for Sustainable Development and be classified as low carbon,” DNV says. This will also require low process-related emissions from hydrogen production and carbon capture. “Our data show that this can be delivered with current natural gas supply in some regions, but not all,
