Comment 511 for Draft 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|Subject||Draft 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan|
The use of hydrogen in our fight against climate change can be
beneficial but the hydrogen must be sourced from renewable energy
sources. Relying on natural gas to produce hydrogen will only
prolong our reliance on fossil fuels and encourage gas companies to
build infrastructure and continue drilling for oil. Furthermore,
while in theory CCS technology may help to capture >90% of the
CO2 emissions, studies
shown that the average efficiency on active CCS facilities hovers
just below 80%.
Some questions to consider:
How are the CCS facilities going to be powered? By a power grid
laden with fossil fuels?
Are you factoring in the transportation of the natural gas to
the reforming/CCS facility and what GHG emissions might arise from
the associated truck driving?
Thanks for your time.
