IEN wrote an article about the hydrogen economy for the September/October 2020 issue of the Green Newspaper. Our article entitled "A Solution to the Climate and Plastic Crisis" makes the point that the hydrogen economy can kill two birds with one stone, name helping in the transition from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy as well as reducing plastic pollution, because all plastics can be made into hydrogen fuel through pyrolysis. In a World fully powered by renewable energy, hydrogen will serve as an energy storage to mitigate fluctuating power from wind and solar. Hydrogen also offers an interesting solution to the aviation industry, which has begun exploring zero greenhouse gas emission fuels, as required by the European Union. This opinion article, written by Gregers Reimann and Siew Zhi Tao, argues that hydrogen is one of the important pieces in the puzzle in the effort to urgently decarbonize the global economy in order to avoid catastrophic and irreversible climate change.
