The Hydrogen Economy
Activity – develop an AO-sized poster that identifies whether there is a route to create a hydrogen economy within the Humberside region. – You will need to identify suitable and sustainable hydrogen production routes from existing or new infrastructure. Choose one of the following considering it will be viable: 1- Biomass—derived liquid reforming 2- Electrolysis 3- Biomass gasification 4- Thermochemical water splitting 5- Photoelectrochemical water splitting 6- Photobiological processes 7- Microbial biomass conversion – You must consider the primary energy source, production method, product storage, transmission and applications (“current and future market”) – suggest ways to rationalise how this may be economically viable. You may approach this topic either from the perspective of a single chemical company (e.g. BP), or as a network of chemical companies (e.g. Saltend Chemicals Park).
