Media contacts
All our research is performed for outside organisations, and in our client relations we make every effort to maintain full independence. We work for a broad range of national and international organisations, from environmental NGOs all the way through to major industrial players. In pursuing our mission we often seek publicity – or publicity seeks us. Studies carried out by CE Delft for third parties are regularly covered in the media. Wherever possible we make our ideas available to a wider public, to contribute to the public debate.

Press release - Feasibility study into blue hydrogen
Today, 29-8-2018, CE Delft publishes the report Feasibility study into blue hydrogen . The study identifies blue hydrogen as a technical feasible, industrial scale CO2-reduction measure. We want to inform you about the publications, share contact details for further contact and offer the possibility that CE Delft presents these results and additional information on (blue) hydrogen. The main conclusions of the report are that blue hydrogen has a low CO2 -footprint and the chain is technically feasible.

CO2 -footprint
An greenhouse gas emission analysis has been performed on steam reforming processes (SMR and ATR) and electrolysis processes, for both 2018 and 2030 state-of-the-art technology. The CO2 footprint for blue hydrogen is determined to be lower than green hydrogen produced from Norwegian electricity (17 g CO2/kWh), 0,82-1,14 and 1,13 kg CO2/kg H2 respectively. This influences the debate regarding the sustainability assessment of blue and green hydrogen.

Technical feasibility
The research is a system analysis on the five process steps: production via steam reforming, carbon capture and storage, transport in pipelines, daily and seasonal storage and industrial applications. The chain is viable and can guarantee industrial volume and economic attractive production many years before green hydrogen. Blue hydrogen offers the potential of solving downstream hydrogen challenges regarding transport and applications now, enabling the transition towards green hydrogen in the future.
