Green Hydrogen Can Save Us. But Waiting For It Won’t.

I saw the title of this post on the side of a green bus.

Route 43 goes between London Bridge station and Friern Barnet via Bank, Moorgate, Old Street (Silicon Roundabout) and The Angel.

So it goes right through the centre of the City of London.

Andrew Forrest is intending to get his message across to the City.

To find out more, you could always connect to the web site on the bus.

  1. I was looking at the INEOS buses with their blue hydrogen and this FFI bus with its green hydrogen both servicing Ryze. FFI have, in their own publicity displayed their disrespect for the blue hydrogen lobby but it doesn’t seem to bother the Bamford – business is business.

  2. At Runcorn, INEOS have a carbon-free hydrogen plant, where I worked in the late 1960s. The hydrogen produced by that plant that uses the Castner Kellner process supplies the hydrogen for London’s buses. I suspect they are making a lot of hydrogen as a by-product of the electrolysis of brine to get chlorine.

    The hydrogen produced in Runcorn in the 1960s was pure and was sold for a variety of uses, where pure hydrogen was needed. So I suspect that so long as the blue hydrogen is pure, the end users don’t bother about it.

    In some ways the difference between blue and green hydrogen, is like the difference between salt from a mine in Cheshire and salt created by evaporation on a beach in Cornwall or Anglesey.

    Chemical formulas are the same, but the provenance is not necessarily right.

    We need to be as scientifically green as we can be, but that doesn’t mean we’ll necessary satisfy the ultra-greens.

  3. […] I have to admit, that I thought something like this might happen, after seeing all the Fortescue Future Industries publicity on a bus, which I wrote about in Green Hydrogen Can Save Us. But Waiting For It Won’t. […]
