Argonne Hosts Webinar on the Risks and Benefits of Using Hydrogen in Business

Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) will host a short conference online seminar May 11, 11:15 a.m. CT, on the use of hydrogen in businesses.

Replacing fossil fuels with hydrogen could turn manufacturing and transportation into green industries. Companies can use hydrogen to reduce their carbon footprint in several ways, for example to generate electricity; deploy fuel cells for heavy vehicles; make steel; and to produce ammonia for fertilizers and products.

However, turning these ideas into reality raises complex questions.

  • What are the ways of producing hydrogen that offer the best return on investment and profit?

  • How much would a company’s carbon footprint decrease?

  • What new infrastructures are needed to produce and transport hydrogen? Is it affordable?

In this webinar, Amgad Elgowainy, Senior Scientist at Argonne, will explain how to quantify the risks and benefits of hydrogen production, transport and use in business. It will show how individuals can analyze any detail of the hydrogen market with Argonne’s free tools such as greenhouse gases, regulated emissions, and energy use in technologies (GREET) and the hydrogen delivery scenario analysis model (HDSAM).
