This course will introduce the leading technologies available for turquoise hydrogen production and provide fundamental basics to enable it.
The hydrogen economy is a vital component of Alberta’s future growth to sustainable energy development. Turquoise hydrogen will be an important part of Alberta’s pathways for developing a hydrogen economy. It uses natural gas as feed material and has a small to no CO2 footprint, depending on the energy vector utilized for the process. In addition, depending on the design of the technology and catalyst utilized, it has the potential to produce a valuable elemental carbon product which can be another source of revenue for the operation.
This course will introduce the leading technologies available for turquoise hydrogen production and provide fundamental basics to enable informed decision-making and the technology selection process. The course will discuss the centralized and decentralized production concepts and the advantages and disadvantages of each approach.
This course will discuss the basic information required for evaluating and understanding different allotropes of elemental carbon and explain all the necessary analytical techniques for the characterization of the produced carbon type, such as carbon nanotubes, graphenes, graphite, and amorphous carbon.
