Hydrogen is currently being discussed as a decarbonisation option for many sectors, some of them very different, from the transport sector to process heat in industry. The publicly funded research project HyGlass is investigating how hydrogen and natural gas-hydrogen mixtures can be used to decarbonise the energy-intensive high-temperature processes in the glass industry.

First micromix gas turbines burn pure hydrogen
The Kawasaki M1A gas turbine is a milestone for the energy turnaround. It has been operating on a harbour island off Kobe since July 2020 and is the first gas turbine with complete, dry and low-nitrogen oxide hydrogen combustion, so-called dry-low NOX combustion. This is because H2 is extremely reactive, and it is precisely this that distinguishes the combustion of a hydrogen-natural gas mixture from that of pure natural gas.
