Hydrogen is one of the fuels of the future and it is a critical feedstock for the chemical industry. Hydrogen can be used in fuel cells, synthetic fuels, and for heating to name a few applications.
Hydrogen contains the most energy by weight of any chemical fuel. Methane (usually consumed as natural gas) has the second highest energy level by weight but has only 40% of the energy that hydrogen does. The tablebelow gives a perspective of the energy available from different fuels as compared to hydrogen.
