Why Is This Project Needed?
Saving a world in climate crisis
Climate is impacting our planet faster than predicted. Global warming is expected to exceed the targeted maximum of 1.5oC well before the end of the century.
Widespread, rapid, and irreversible changes are already evident within our communities and eco-systems.
Emissions from fossil fuel combustion account for over three quarters of global emissions and represents the largest contributor to global warming.
Green hydrogen and derivatives such as ammonia have been identified as an alternative energy of the future and will play a critical role in our transition to a carbon-neutral economy.
Using renewable wind and solar energy in green hydrogen production, Murchison Green Hydrogen will provide an alternative clean fuel capable of reducing the worlds reliance on fossil fuels.
The green energy solution
As an energy source of the future, green hydrogen has the potential for near-zero greenhouse gas emissions.
While ‘grey’ hydrogen is produced using traditional fossil fuels, ‘green’ hydrogen employs renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar.
This results in an environmentally friendly production process with minimal-to-no CO2 emissions and represents the preferred method of energy production for the future.
