Clean hydrogen and carbon management technologies such as Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) and pyrolysis will play a critical role to create the necessary scale and make hydrogen applications cost-competitive.
That’s why IOGP supports an inclusive, balanced, and technology-neutral approach for Europe’s energy system. As part of a wide industry coalition, IOGP, together with many of its Members, was among 33 signatories to a letter to the EU Commission’s Vice President Frans Timmerman calling for a Hydrogen Strategy which includes all clean hydrogen production pathways, including hydrogen from natural gas.
Following the release of the EU’s Hydrogen and Energy System Integration Strategies two weeks later, IOGP published a press release emphasizing the long-term cross-sectoral role of natural gas, as well as that of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and its potential for expansion.
If you want to learn more about clean hydrogen and carbon management technologies, you may want to take a look at our new dedicated webpages, as well as GasNaturally’s campaign “Clean Hydrogen and CCS for Europe”. The launch of this campaign coincides with IOGP taking over the chairmanship of GasNaturally’s Steering Committee.
