    In 2050, green hydrogen could reduce 53 million tons of CO2: PVEM

    March 17, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Deputy Javier Lopez Casarin, of the PVEM, said that Mexico needs to take firm steps in the energy transition, and one is the development of a green hydrogen industry, which allows the replacement of fossil fuels with clean energy.

      "The use of hydrogen makes it possible to store large amounts of energy and can be transported efficiently. It is used in oil refining, in the ammonia and fertilizer production industry, in vehicle transportation through fuel cells or in cells that generate electricity," he explained.

      He added that the Mexican Government has signed international environmental commitments, one of them was to generate 35% of its electricity with clean energies, which was ratified by the President at the beginning of the year, in the Meeting with Leaders of the North.

      "One alternative to achieve this commitment is the use of green hydrogen as a sustainable fuel. We estimate that by 2050, the green hydrogen industry will be able to reduce 53 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), which is equivalent to a 14% reduction compared to the base year, 2019," said the Green Party legislator.

      He also commented that he presented a point of agreement that proposes that the Chamber of Deputies urge the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to include green hydrogen within the regional Climate Attention Program with the United States.

      Green hydrogen can be obtained from water through electrolysis, which separates the oxygen and hydrogen molecules and captures the latter; it can also be obtained through biomass, that is, organic waste.

      And it can be used to move buses, trains and private vehicles; last year 15,000 hydrogen-powered vehicles were marketed globally.

      Electricity can also be generated with green hydrogen; and it would seek to displace fossil fuels, such as fuel oil, gasoline and diesel, in industrial processes, he added at a press conference.
