Rosatom is going to launch four hydrogen production projects in 2024-2025
According to the Atlas of Russian projects for the production of low-carbon and carbon-free hydrogen and ammonia, published by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, Rosatom is going to launch four pilot hydrogen production projects in 2024-2025.
In the Kaliningrad Region, it is planned to launch the production of "green" hydrogen by water electrolysis using wind energy in 2024. The products are planned to be sold to the domestic market and to Europe.
Hydrogen color gradation
Currently, the following color gradation of hydrogen has been adopted, depending on the method of its production and carbon footprint:
- "green" is produced using energy from renewable sources by water electrolysis, is considered to be the cleanest;
- "blue" is produced from natural gas, in this case carbon dioxide accumulates in special storage facilities;
- "pink/red" is produced using atomic energy;
- "gray" - harmful emissions go into the atmosphere during production.
