We started our podcast series by understanding how hydrogen is produced and then looked at where it should and could be used. We then focussed on specific sectors of aviation, maritime, and glass production before moving slightly away from our sector focus and looking at the role waste can play in the move towards the hydrogen economy. Last time we looked at hydrogen for combustion and today we are talking about nuclear hydrogen.

In this episode of the podcast, Debra Jones, Chemistry Knowledge Transfer Manager and Ray Chegwin, Nuclear Knowledge Transfer Manager from Innovate UK KTN, talk about nuclear uses for hydrogen with their special guest Allan Simpson, Technical Lead at the National Nuclear Laboratory.

Don’t miss this fascinating discussion centred around energy costs and the best future energy sources to focus on.
