Green hydrogen becomes a crucial component in the worldwide race towards the energy transition, helping to decarbonize the Mexican economy and lessen the effects of climate change.
It is suggested as one of the alternatives to fossil fuels for lowering CO2 emissions, particularly in industries that cannot use renewable electrical energy, such heavy, air, and sea transportation.
The expert stresses the industry as a whole as offering the nation incalculable prospects in this way.
Industries need to decarbonize for a variety of reasons, including their own requirements, obligations, and compliance with ESG standards and UN sustainable development targets.
Existing and functional technical standards for gray hydrogen are available. It is necessary to have regulations for solar and wind power facilities that blend natural gas and hydrogen.
In order to manufacture hydrogen, store it, blend it into the network, and transport it to businesses or residences, official Mexican requirements are required. Methane-derived gray hydrogen has long been employed in industrial processes. But this pollutes just as much as any other fossil fuel.
On the other side, green hydrogen is produced from water by breaking the water molecule, separating the oxygen from the hydrogen, and then capturing the hydrogen with electrolyzing machinery that uses renewable energy sources like sun, wind, or photothermal. This is how the sustainability circle is completed and the much-promoted green hydrogen is created.
