This press release was orginally distributed by SBWire

London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/18/2022 -- The latest publication by GlobalData Plc titled Hydrogen in Mining – Thematic Research has been recently added to the GlobalData Plc report catalog. The report identifies that Hydrogen remains one of the most abundantly available and commonly known elements in the world, and it will become a game-changer with its noteworthy contribution to clean energy transitions. Hydrogen will play a critical role in the transition to clean energy with the advancement of its applications in sectors such as transportation and haulage (fuel cell vehicles), buildings (hydrogen blending), and power generation.

View Report Outlook at:

In the mining sector hydrogen is forming part of many miners' decarbonization pathways, either as carbon-free fuel to displace diesel in heavy equipment, such as haul trucks and trains, or to generate electricity for the power processing plant, with testing already underway and the potential for it to be used more widely before the end of the decade.
