Gas turbines are versatile and can be used in several different modes in critical industries such as power generation, oil and gas, process plants, aviation, as well domestic and smaller related industries.
When it comes to power generation, gas turbines are an important factor and as a result of the increasing energy demand in Europe, it is likely that their importance will further grow in the coming decades. A gas turbine can operate on a range of fuels, while currently the most common fuel is natural gas. In order to decarbonize this specific field, other gases like hydrogen gas are likely to be used
Hydrogen gas is highly reactive and therefore has a very high laminar burning velocity. When added to slower burning fuels the hydrogen will extend the flammability limits and enhance flame propagation. This can result in a more efficient combustion, giving lower emission of hazardous air pollutants and greenhouse gases.
