What makes hydrogen so attractive? It can be produced by simple electrolysis, using solar or wind power to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. And it can be banked for long periods of time before being burned, essentially allowing sunlight and wind to be “stored” for times of year when those renewable power sources are not so abundant.

Why not apply this science to Gas that's being flared off?  While not being a Chemist, Methane is CH so when the Hydrogen is removed all that's left is Carbon and there is plenty of market for carbon as opposed to carbon dioxide.

Just a question.
