Hydrogen and Carbon Capture Technology

Fast & Fair: The Climate Transition, with DLA Piper – Episode 3

Once upon a time solar panels felt like the future. But they were confusing – would we all just be powering our own houses with them? And what happened when the sun didn’t shine? And why were they so expensive? And what would the power companies think if we took the means of power production into our own hands?

There are just as many questions about green (or blue) hydrogen and carbon capture. Podcast guest Andreas Gunst has been thinking about it for ten years and is on hand to bring us all up to speed. “Nearly every country is looking into carbon capture storage at the moment. It just feels like the right time,” he told us, entirely uncoincidentally, at COP26.

The questions about successful implementation echo those of solar 20 years ago. Who will pay for the infrastructure? Will the government offer incentives and policy to move it to a tipping point? And who is going to come up with the universal practice standards needed to safeguard against climate catastrophe?

Gunst, a partner at DLA Piper tells host Lee Beck of the Clean Air Task Force about the clusters working on carbon capture storage, such as Net Zero Teeside in the UK, where several industrial, power and hydrogen businesses are working out how to capture the climate warming emissions they produce and bury it out at sea in underwater reservoirs. If you’re wondering how that works, you’re not the only one. Tune in to learn more about a brave new world.
