What the Heck is a Carbon Capture/Hydrogen Hub Anyway?


Marcellus Drilling News , November 1,2022


Typically when you read about a “hydrogen hub” like those that will be financed with taxpayer money in the coming years ($7 billion allocated to fund 6-10 hubs coming from the so-called infrastructure bill), you also see the term CCS or CCUS, which stands for carbon capture and sequestration (the U meaning utilization). The two are linked, hydrogen and CCS. Some 95% of all hydrogen comes from steam-cracking natural gas. Environuts insist we must capture and store the carbon dioxide that is released via the cracking process to save the planet. That’s why CCS is paired with hydrogen so often. But how, exactly, does CCS work?
