Canadian company Hydroma is conducting initial studies in Mali to exploit the country's subsurface reservoirs of naturally occurring hydrogen. The company aims to build a 100MW power plant that utilizes this hydrogen for local electricity generation. It plans to seek funding from the UN's Green Climate Fund (GCF) and has already conducted a pilot project. Initial assessments conducted by Chapman Petroleum Engineering indicate that the hydrogen in Mali's reservoirs has a purity of 98%. The political situation in Mali poses challenges for exporting the hydrogen, making local use more likely.
