Blue and green hydrogen produce “comparable” levels of emissions, says research body. A leading European research body has hit back at claims blue hydrogen is “difficult to justify” due to its carbon emissions. Norwegian organisation SINTEF Energy said its analysis shows the emissions intensity of blue and green hydrogen are “comparable and complementary” when applying “appropriate and realistic” technology concepts. Its findings are based on “both green and blue hydrogen production” in projects financed by the EU commission, the Research Council of Norway and industry over several years.

Octopus Hydrogen, from the Octopus Energy Group, will supply over 250 kg of green hydrogen per day to power ZeroAvia’s HyFlyer II programme. The HyFlyer II project is a government-backed programme to develop a certifiable 600kW hydrogen-electric fuel cell powertrain that will power a 19-seat aircraft with a 500 nautical mile range. By 2024, the zero emission hydrogen-electric powertrain technology plans to market, enabling commercial zero emission flights to adopt this technology. The UK Government promotes the use of green hydrogen in aviation, as outlined in their Hydrogen Strategy.
