Understanding the Potential of Carbon-Negative Hydrogen

October 12, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

The global climate crisis has reached a critical point, highlighted by the latest IPCC report, which underscores the vital role of Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) in limiting temperature increases below 1.5°C. Following the release of their report earlier this year, The Potential Role of Biohydrogen in the Net-zero World: The Production and Applications of Carbon-Negative Hydrogen, there has been a notable surge in interest and momentum around carbon-negative hydrogen. This unique form of hydrogen combines fuel characteristics with CDR potential, offering a promising solution for industries facing decarbonization challenges, especially in hard-to-abate sectors like steel and chemicals, where it could enable zero-carbon or even carbon-negative production.

Join the Center on Global Energy Policy (CGEP) at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs as they convene an international panel of diverse stakeholders immersed in carbon-negative hydrogen initiatives. CGEP will facilitate an in-depth conversation regarding the potential and challenges associated with carbon-negative hydrogen as a transformative element within the global energy transition, including its production methodologies, carbon footprint, cost implications, practical applications, and the relevant policy landscape.
