We’ll help our planet step beyond fossil fuels by harnessing the world’s renewable energy resources to produce renewable electricity, green hydrogen, green ammonia and other green industrial products such as green iron.
Although its supply is infinite, hydrogen is not commonly found in its pure form in nature. It can be manually produced through a process called electrolysis. This process requires electricity and when achieved using renewable energy resources like solar, wind, hydropower or geothermal energy with zero carbon dioxide emissions, the result is green hydrogen.
The resulting oxygen is released back into the atmosphere, and the green hydrogen can be used domestically or exported for uses around the globe.
Green hydrogen is a practical and implementable solution that will revolutionise the way we power our planet, while decarbonising heavy industry and creating jobs globally. Green hydrogen can help decarbonise hard-to-abate sectors such as heavy haulage, shipping and industry. It could be:
Fortescue will use green hydrogen to decarbonise our company’s mining and shipping fleet. We’ve announced a goal to reach real zero by 2030, positioning the company as a leader in addressing the global climate change challenge. Producing green hydrogen is key to achieving this goal.
Many of green hydrogen’s properties make it safer to handle and use than other commonly used fuels. Hydrogen is:
Green hydrogen can be safely transported:
