In today's society as global energy demands are addressed, it is expected that hydrogen will play a crucial role in future energy infrastructure. Hydrogen is being turned too as an energy carrier in hopes to wean our current society away from carbon-emitting fossil fuels and to mitigate their effects on the atmosphere. Hydrogen has a gross energy or higher heating value of 142 MJ/kg compared to natural gas or crude oil that register at 52 and 45 MJ/kg, respectively, hydrogen also has demonstrated its ability as fuel for vehicles, electricity storage via fuel cells, and a number of other useful attributes in the chemical and metallurgical industries.
