Addressing False Hydrogen Solutions

ORVI Research on Blue Hydrogen and Carbon Capture with Ben Hunkler, Ohio River Valley Institute (ORVI)

Saturday, October 1, 2022 at 1:00 PM
Participate either in person or via Zoom (see below)

Blue hydrogen and carbon capture are the oil and gas industry’s latest “silver bullet” solutions to economic stagnation and rising carbon emissions in Pennsylvania’s natural gas counties. But are these technologies really worth the hype? A review of Ohio River Valley Institute research shows that plans to deploy carbon capture technology as part of a regional blue hydrogen ‘hub’ are technically flawed and economically absurd. Data show the best, most cost-effective way to curb emissions, grow jobs, and secure a safer, healthier, more prosperous future is to join in the transition to clean energy.

Participate in either of two ways:
  • in person at Jaycees Shelter, Alameda Park, 184 Alameda Park Rd., Butler PA 16001, or
  • via Zoom – Register here for link to join with Zoom. Insert your name and email address and “False Solutions link” in Comment Box and you’ll receive the link via email. Note that you need to have Zoom installed.

MOB is pleased to introduce Ben Hunkler. Ben is the communications lead for the Ohio River Valley Institute, a regional research organization charting a path toward shared prosperity, clean energy, and equitable civic structures. Before coming to ORVI, Ben worked with community organization Concerned Ohio River Residents to raise awareness of petrochemical development and fracking waste in Belmont County, OH.
