The B.C. Centre for Innovation and Clean Energy (CICE) Released a New Report: The Potential for Methane Pyrolysis in B.C. report

The report provides a techno-economic and environmental analysis that explores opportunities for low-carbon hydrogen in B.C. and discovers key drivers and barriers, opportunities for innovation, and how to leverage B.C.’s energy infrastructure to accelerate decarbonization.

Key takeaways of the report include:

  • Methane pyrolysis provides a cost-effective, low carbon intensity hydrogen production method that could result in rapid and wide-spread hydrogen deployment across British Columbia.
  • Methane pyrolysis can leverage B.C.’s existing energy infrastructure and resources to generate hydrogen at the point of demand, effectively serving areas where renewable energy, water, and carbon storage reservoirs are not readily available.
  • The techno-economic analysis shows that delivered costs for hydrogen produced via methane pyrolysis at a 300 tonnes per day scale can potentially be as low as $3.61/kg by 2030, and with carbon revenues, be even lower than the forecasted 2030 incumbent fossil fuels in B.C., inclusive of carbon tax.

If you are interested in learning more about the report, attend the CICE’s webinar on Thursday, May 9th, 2024.
