As we start our trip into the future, there are many promising technologies. Some of these will fall by the wayside – being killed by more practical alternatives, but some of these, although not the clear winner, will find niches where they are viable. Such might be the future for the many alternative methods to use hydrogen as a clean (non-greenhouse gas (GHG) emitting) fuel.

Some have suggested a “quick fix” to reduce the amount of GHG emitted by the use of geologically sourced natural gas would be to blend hydrogen into natural gas. While it is true many international experiments have demonstrated this can be done, it is not without its down-side.

However, there are at least two other paths to increase the compatibility of these two gases, while greatly reducing the amount of GHG emitted through combustion of natural gas.
