Influence of different hydrogen production processes on carbon footprint and cost of selected chemicals

Influence of different hydrogen production processes on carbon footprint and cost of selected chemicals

Speaker: Aydan Gedik, Master's degree candidate at BASF SE

Areas of expertise: Process engineering and energy engineering

Presentation language: English

Abstract:
Hydrogen is not only in focus as a future energy source, but also as a basic chemical for numerous chemical value chains in industry. The current hydrogen supply by means of steam reforming from natural gas is accompanied by the emission of CO2. To reduce CO2 emissions, as decided in the 2015 international climate treaty, alternative technologies for large-scale hydrogen production with competitive costs and reduced carbon footprints are currently of great interest.

Therefore, the hydrogen production technologies (methane pyrolysis and water electrolysis) are examined and compared using cradle-to gate life cycle assessment (LCA) in terms of carbon footprint and cost.
