The Fuel Cell Technologies Office will present a live webinar titled "U.S. Shale Revolution and Chemicals Industry Generates Low-Cost Large-Scale Supply of Hydrogen" on Wednesday, December 13, from 12 to 1 p.m Eastern Standard Time (EST). In this webinar, Argonne National Laboratory will explain how the U.S. shale revolution is creating thousands of tonnes of hydrogen supply per day, in parallel with rapid growth in the chemicals industry. Growth in the production of natural gas has created supply of natural gas liquids (NGLs), which are recovered from natural gas streams. NGLs are currently "cracked" to produce high-value chemicals, such as ethane, that satisfy both domestic and export demands. A by-product of petrochemical cracking is high-purity hydrogen that is currently burned or vented. Recovery of these by-product streams has a strong value proposition to meet the hydrogen demands of emerging industries, such as fuel cell electric vehicles. The webinar will cover analysis of the expected quantities and costs of by-product hydrogen supply by 2020.
