Fact Sheet: Manufacturing & Hydrogen: Decarbonizing Essential Processes

April 16, 2021

To fully decarbonize the U.S. economy, we must look beyond just power generation, heating, and transportation. Manufacturing processes create products that are ubiquitous to everyday life and are all around us – from buildings we live and work in, to the roads we drive and walk on, to the food we eat – but also account for a large share of greenhouse gas emissions. And the processes to make cement, steel, and ammonia, for example, are difficult to decarbonize. Hydrogen is currently the only zero-emission technology capable of producing the extreme heat necessary for the production of the industrial materials we need for the global economy to function. Combined with energy efficiency and circular economy practices, among other methods, hydrogen as a heat producer or electricity storage mechanism for zero-carbon energy will unlock deep decarbonization for essential industrial processes. Check out this factsheet to learn more about how hydrogen can decarbonize industrial processes.
