You do have to recognise that Wales is a special case within the UK. The rule of law is more flexible here than anywhere else in the UK and political statements less meaningful. Still a push in the right direction.

You'd need to have clarity of the process from H2 to baking powder to H2 to understand the energy losses and the density of energy storage to see if this is a sensible solution. The H2 to Ammonia to H2 cycle is well understood.

Nice point tone. If we replace the word Hydrogen with "Petrol" in your paragraph we can see that standards can be set in say Brussels but will not be followed in say Turkey. The good news is Bhopal disaster caused the gases industry to really become safety focused. So I would trust Linde to be safe. I would not trust say Tesla with Hydrogen as their culture is not firm enough and they have not had a major crisis yet. Still going to be a rocky road.
I've been receiving the monthly newletter for a few years now. It has slowly gone from little new information to none apart from general trade updates around Europe. The CEO is responsible for this nonsense, I have may have mentioned this before, but time to change the captain, folks.
You may be right about BP. I suspect that it will merely greenwash the fundementals of the business. Still I don't see the BPs of this world as the problem, it is the likes of you and I who insist on easy long distance private transport. Until we stop taking the drugs the drug pushers will not go out of business.

BOC in Australia is basically what they call linde. Linde Is helping the development. H2 is what they are about. OZ is desperate to find out what to sell to the Chinese once the coal is no longer needed.

I'm confused by Hazer website. It is very coy about its efficiency. After digging it is suggesting roughly 60% which would worry me. On the other hand what else do you do with isolated CH4 stocks like bio methane from a digester.
So what happens to the other 40%? Giving the feed is CH4 Is It just making CO2?
