Hydrogen can be used as a fuel in kilns. It can be used in place of natural gas or other fuels to provide heat for the kiln. However, there are some safety considerations to keep in mind when using hydrogen as a fuel. Hydrogen has a wide range of flammability, so it is important to carefully control the concentration of hydrogen in the air when using it as a fuel. It is also important to ensure that the kiln and fuel system are designed and built to be suitable for use with hydrogen fuel.

Why is our Kiln so important?
This a 100% Hydrogen burning kiln. This new science and technology and use of fuel, could change the way future kilns are fired. Hydrogen is a greener fuel that can be used rather than the conventical gas or electric or even coal.
How is Hydrogen produced?
Green hydrogen is defined as hydrogen produced by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen using renewable electricity.
Grey hydrogen is traditionally produced from methane (CH4), split with steam into CO2 – the main culprit for climate change – and H2, hydrogen. Grey hydrogen has increasingly been produced also from coal
Blue hydrogen follows the same process as grey, with the additional technologies necessary to capture the CO2 produced when hydrogen is split from methane (or from coal) and store it for long term.
There are technologies (i.e. methane pyrolysis) that hold a promise for high capture rates (90-95%) and effective longterm storage of the CO2 in solid form, potentially so much better than blue that they deserve their own colour in the “hydrogen taxonomy rainbow”, Turquoise hydrogen. However, methane pyrolysis is still at pilot stage.
There are quite a few other coloured variants of hydrogen but these at the moment are the most commonly used.
