Carbon removal takes the gas form of carbon in the atmosphere (carbon dioxide) and transforms it into a solid. The natural carbon cycle already does this by storing carbon in carbon sinks such as trees, plants, soils, rocks, and the ocean. Chemistry rocks! (sorry)
Hydrogen is a colorless, odorless gas. We use colors to describe the production process. Hydrogen fuel is produced either through natural gas reforming (from methane) or by the electrolysis of water.
In the 1940s, a group of chemicals called PFAS (per- or poly-fluoroalkyl substances if you’re nasty) were invented. Created in a lab, these miracle chemicals are resistant to heat, oil, and water - oh my! The possibilities were endless, and so the development of consumer and industrial products using PFAS exploded over the next 60 years from non-stick pans and water-proof clothing to food packaging and fire-fighting foam. It was a capitalist dream - what could go wrong?
