Session Description: 

One of the great assumptions about the future circular economy is that it will be Net Zero.  However, for this to happen, every component of supply chains must meet this criteria. Presently, the world is facing a great challenge of decarbonizing heavy haul transportation and high heat industrial processes. Our hypothesis for this session: Blue Hydrogen is a viable solution to power long haul transportation and high heat industrial processes for North America’s emerging Circular Economy.
