eLibrary BLUE HYDROGEN Version 1 (October 2021)
The purpose of this eLibrary is to introduce the debate on ‘blue hydrogen’ ranging from its proponents to the sceptics. Blue hydrogen is created from fossil sources, where the carbon emissions produced are being captured and stored. No worry that ‘carbon capture’ technology itself is still in its infancy. The list is not intended to be exhaustive. All the pieces are free-online. However, some items have been republished in Academia Edu [AE] and Research Gate [RG]. These can be accessed simply by registering at each (once only).
