How hydrogen can change the energy landscape



The National UAE | Robin Mills | May 12, 2019

In 1964, the Methane Princess tanker made the first ever delivery of liquefied natural gas (LNG), from Algeria to the UK, sparking what is now a $100 billion (Dh367.31bn) industry. This February, Dubai began constructing a “green hydrogen” pilot plant to fuel vehicles at the Expo. Can the “hydrogen economy” learn from the experience of LNG?

The lightest and most abundant element in the universe, elemental hydrogen does not occur in significant quantities on Earth. It is chemically combined in water, biological materials and other substances.

World fuel has gradually moved from wood which has 10 times as much carbon as hydrogen, through coal, with about one hydrogen atom for each carbon, to oil with twice as many hydrogen atoms, and natural gas with four hydrogens per carbon...snip

....The MENA region has four key advantages in leading the hydrogen economy: abundant low-cost solar power; large, reasonably-priced gas resources; underground storage space for carbon dioxide captured from hydrogen production; and a geographic location ideal for reaching both European and Asian markets...more: https://www.thenational.ae/business/energy/how-hydrogen-can-change-the-energy-landscape-1.860306

2. Do propane trucks scare you?



Hydrogen is safer than propane, guess why.

Did you know that every winter some houses explode because heavy snow breaks the pipe connection from the tank to the house, propane then fills the house and when someone flicks a light switch --- BOOM

If hydrogen was so dangerous how did anyone at all survive the Hindenburg disaster?

3. Would the heavy snow also break the pipe connection to a hydrogen tank?




"If hydrogen was so dangerous how did anyone at all survive the Hindenburg disaster?"

If its so safe, how did anyone die?

The passenger cabin was below the fire and relatively close to the ground.
