Natural hydrogen reserves can replace fossil fuels

Climate friendly, but technically demanding

Will hydrogen soon replace Russian natural gas?

Climate-friendly hydrogen can replace fossil fuels: In the past decade, discoveries of natural soil reserves have increased. But before renewables can actually be exploited, many hurdles must be overcome.

Large amounts of naturally occurring, climate-friendly hydrogen are found in the Earth’s interior. They can meet the world’s energy needs for thousands of years.

Away from Russian natural gas toward a climate-friendly energy source: this utopia could become a reality thanks to global discoveries of underground hydrogen reserves. So she writes for the American science magazine “Science”. Hydrogen has been traded as a promising energy carrier for several years. In combustion, only water vapor is produced.

Years ago, geologists discovered a natural hydrogen field in the African country of Mali. It proves what a handful of researchers have been saying for years: There are large amounts of gas in the Earth’s interior that can be burned without carbon dioxide emissions.
