Introduction to Hydrogen: technologies and applications for sustainable development

Diana Angelica TORRES, PhD.
Hinicio, Belgium

Friday 20 January / 14-16h Amphi Atrium ESPRIT


On the trajectory to achieve climate-neutrality by 2050, the EU has commitment itself to reduce its net GHG emissions with at least 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels. In July 2021, this target was embedded into EU law (an upward revision of the previous -40% target). In this context, hydrogen is considered to be a key component of the economy transition and significant investment is being made to bring the technology up to scale. Hydrogen has a multiplicity of uses and can address various markets, including hard to abate sectors. However, bringing hydrogen to scale requires coordinated technological development. Such considerations need to be taken into account in terms of its production, storage and value chain management. This conference will serve as an introduction to these considerations. We will address H2 production technologies and ‘colors’ of hydrogen, value chain, H2 storage and technical considerations, applications in hard to abate sectors, electrolyzer technologies and technical considerations and main technological challenges.
