Hydrogen is a clean fuel that does not emit CO2 on combustion and also offers greater energy security. Today, hydrogen is largely used of as a feedstock for industrial processing, in the production of ammonia for fertilizers (around 50%), in refining (35%), and in food, electronics, glass and metal industries. Now, with global leaders in the energy industry in search of solutions that help achieve decarbonization or enhance energy security, the use of hydrogen as an energy vector is gathering momentum.
