As the natural hydrogen sector is picking up, it is gathering more attention from mainstream media, this time by CNN. Researchers in northeastern France have discovered a significant deposit of "white hydrogen," a naturally occurring form of the gas, with potential climate benefits. White hydrogen is a clean-burning energy source that could help industries requiring large amounts of power, such as aviation and steel-making, transition away from fossil fuels. While commercial hydrogen production is energy-intensive, white hydrogen occurs naturally, and its potential is garnering increased interest from startups and investors. However, challenges remain in terms of regulation, costs, and commercialisation. FDE is the sole explorer that has discovered natural hydrogen in France's Lorraine basin.
