Abstract Scope Currently, most fuels are burned, creating useful heat but also generating CO2. An alternative approach starts with carbon-containing fuels, decomposing them into hydrogen and solid carbon. The high temperature and thermal input rates required to decarbonize heavy industry are provided by hydrogen, assuming it is made at large enough scale. A variety of high-throughput methods to decompose natural gas (e.g., pyrolysis) are under development, and we will discuss our own novel approach to this problem. Our method, like virtually all new methods to make hydrogen at scale, generates lots of carbon powder. We need to transform this carbon into forms useful to industries that operate on large scales - construction and/or agriculture – so that the carbon is permanently and usefully sequestered. This is why as we design our hydrogen production process we’ve included modularity, with units for carbon upgrading, and we will discuss our advances in this endeavor.
