About the course
The UK has committed to reducing carbon emissions to net zero by 2050. This can only be achieved by decarbonising existing industry effectively. Zero Carbon Humber and Humber Zero are projects to reduce carbon emissions and create a low carbon future for the Humber’s industry. Zero Carbon Humber uses a combination of Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage technology and Hydrogen production within an existing industrial cluster to decarbonise the wider Humber. The University of Hull is committed to supporting decarbonisation of the Humber and this course will provide businesses with a foundational understanding of hydrogen sources, applications, production, transportion and storage as well as the policy and economic considerations.
You will learn about why Hydrogen is essential to achieve the goals of net zero carbon emissions to minimise climate change. Drawing on worldwide and regional examples, the course will provide learners with the insight they need to understand the key concepts around the technology, ensuring that their business remains relevant against the evolving transition to cleaner industries.
Participation in the Hydrogen course will enable businesses to demonstrate their commitment to the green agenda. Course participants will be ideally placed to network and build relationships with like-minded businesses to strengthen the commercial position of their organisations to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
The course will begin by looking at climate change & GHGs; current and future use of Hydrogen and its sources and applications. The course will look at different ways of producing hydrogen and their respective impacts on climate change whilst considering the practicality and cost of each method. The course will then explore emerging technologies and current research thinking. On day two the course will consider hydrogen initiatives; policy and economics including blue hydrogen and CCS and hydrogen transportation and storage. The course will close with an examination of hydrogen projects in the UK and Humber Region. Participants will examine through discussions the need for actions and identify opportunities for businesses to influence the transition to clean products and processes.
