Less carbon, more autonomy: Europe says yes to clean hydrogen

Thursday, 16 de June de 2022

Last week, European Member States formally notifyied the first Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI) to the Commission in the field of hydrogen. This is a much-awaited step in supporting transnational projects to address market failures in this strategic value chain. The pan-European and ambitious nature of the IPCEI is very promising. We are talking about 41 projects, in 15 Member States, investing in the development and manufacturing of electrolysers; of fuel cells; of technologies to power heavy-duty vehicles; or for the safe storage of hydrogen.

The Moon’s surface offers potential for ‘extraterrestrial photosynthesis’ to make oxygen, hydrogen and other fuels. Soil samples gathered by China’s Chang’e-5 spacecraft in late 2020 have been tested as catalysts for water splitting and carbon dioxide conversion. The team analysed the lunar samples and found that iron-, magnesium- and titanium-rich compounds present in the rocks could catalyse a number of processes.
