Coverage of gas emissions since July 2, 2024.

New project aims to make Atlantic Canada a greenhydrogen research hub

"...Commercially, green hydrogen is produced using a process called water electrolysis, in which an electrolyzer powered by a renewable energy source such as wind or solar splits fresh water into hydrogen and oxygen. Unlike other methods of producing hydrogen, which can involve the use of natural gas, coal, or non-renewable energy, green hydrogen does not result in any greenhouse gas emissions. A hindrance to more widespread use is that commercial proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers require precious metals as catalyst materials on its anode (iridium) and cathode (platinum)..."
