Effects of petroleum on the environment:
The most important effects of petroleum use are on global climate change, even though new technology has partially solved some of these issues. Its combustion as a fossil fuel contributes to the pollution of the atmosphere, especially the emissions of carbon dioxide, one of the most hazardous greenhouse gases.
Advantages of using Green Hydrogen as fuel:
Green hydrogen is completely sustainable because it doesn’t release any harmful gases during manufacture or burning. Hydrogen is easily storable, making it possible to use it later for different uses and at periods other than right away after synthesis.
