Brown Coal, Greenwash

The true emissions impact of the Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain Project
by Mark Ogge

Despite being labelled as ‘clean energy’, none of the emissions HESC has produced in its pilot phase have been buried through Carbon Capture and Storage.

The Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) Project uses brown coal gasification, the most polluting method possible, to make hydrogen.

Contrary to claims that HESC will reduce emissions by 1.8 million tonnes (Mt) per year when at full production, the project will instead likely increase emissions by up to 3.8 Mt per year.
