We know hydrogen

Decarbonizing our global economy – our industries, utilities, personal transportation and the production and movement of goods – will require a united effort. Clean, sustainable hydrogen has the potential to reduce and replace our reliance on fossil fuels for heating, transport, production of green chemicals and fertilizer, storage and electricity generation.

A zero-carbon fuel that emits only water, hydrogen’s role in the drive for sustainability can be accelerated by using or adapting significant parts of existing infrastructure to employ hydrogen as a fuel source. This substitution effect means Black & Veatch is already positioned for and delivering progress today across green hydrogen for power generation and storage, advanced transportation and fuel-cell technology, and as a feedstock for green chemicals, as well as the processing of blue hydrogen with carbon capture technology.

From investors and utility operators, industrial and transportation leaders to city planners and regulators, we can help you at every stage of the hydrogen journey as it reshapes markets and economies as the foundation of a decarbonized world. Black & Veatch is a leader in deploying new market technologies, proven at delivering innovation reliably. This means we can de-risk investments across all public, commercial and industrial sectors. We will work with you to scale solutions that meet budget constraints, expectations for return on investments and navigate complex regulations.

Green Hydrogen Power Generation & Storage

We are already transitioning gas-fired facilities to combustion turbine technology using significant percent of green hydrogen; as a leader in renewables, and gas processing and generation, we guide you on this pathway and retrofit your assets.

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles & Other Deployments

We are experienced at building the distributed infrastructure for alternative fuel vehicles, delivering the first major hydrogen fuel charging network in the U.S. We are also experienced deployed fuel cells of telecom sites as well as other power storage applications.

Ammonia for (H2) Storage & Transportation

With 80-plus years in all scales of ammonia production and 30-plus years as a leader in capture technology, we are primed to help refineries future-proof operations and transition to green chemical and hydrogen production throughout the world.
