Hydrogen Super-Hub May Be Headed To UK’s Port Of Southampton

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Hydrogen Fuel News.

It is an interesting article and behind Southampton’s move is this proposition.

The hope is that making the location a hydrogen super-hub would greatly reduce its CO2 emissions.

This paragraph, explains what they will do.

This location would not focus on green H2, but would instead use carbon capture, usage, and storage (CCUS) technology to cut back on the CO2 emissions produced through this hydrogen fuel production. In this way, it would provide a zero-emission fuel while decarbonizing much of the process of its creation. It would provide that locally produced fuel to industries and activities that are currently highly polluting.

Note.

  1. They are not going to generate green hydrogen, which is usually produced by electrolysis using renewable energy.
  2. So how will they create hydrogen?
  3. Increasingly, carbon capture, usage, and storage (CCUS) is being talked about, rather than just carbon capture and storage (CCS). Surely, this is an improvement.
  4. Will we see hydrogen-powered tugs and boats used by the port?

This could be a good move by the Port of Southampton.
