In Case You Missed It – A Controversial Idea For Coal

  • While the need for more LNG is glaringly apparent, we provide a compelling case for using abundant, low-cost US coal to produce cheap blue hydrogen.
  • Hydrogen is likely to be supply-constrained, and clean blue hydrogen from coal is possible relatively quickly and does not rely on unproven new technology.
  • The investor and litigation backlash from throwing support towards coal would likely be significant, and any lifeline would need stringent emission regulation.
