Once blended, how do you separate green hydrogen from natural gas?
Blending green hydrogen into existing natural gas infrastructure has national  benefits for energy storage, resiliency & emissions reductions. But if you actually need to separate the gases again at the end-user's site, this can be expensive. Researchers all over the globe are racing to find a solution. The Fraunhofer Institute has recently announced the development of a membrane & filtration process which can separate the hydrogen out at  a 90% purity level - suitable for steel making. Not commercial or even scaled yet, but potentially a front-runner in the race to find a solution. https://innovationorigins.com/green-hydrogen-and-natural-gas-via-the-same-gas-network/

Decarbonizing heavy industries: German steel giant wants to set up 500 MW green hydrogen plant
I think this is a crucial and most feasible case of green hydrogen utilization. Here just one example I just came across from my home country.German energy company Steag is helping Thyssenkrupp decarbonize its steel production site in Duisburg-Walsum. Green hydrogen generation is expected to be powered by a mix of wind and solar power.Link to article: https://www.pv-magazine.com/2021/02/26/german-steel-giant-wants-to-set-up-500-mw-green-hydrogen-plant/Feel free to reach out to me and connect here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/reneleven/
