The global transition towards net-zero greenhouse gas emissions establishes a need for cleaner energy technologies. Hydrogen is a promising energy carrier whose global demand is steadily increasing and is conventionally produced through steam-methane reforming with carbon capture, or blue H2. Hydrogen production supplied by renewable energy (green H2) is an emerging process, but developing countries are not yet ready for a full transition. Augmenting blue H2 with green H2 production will allow a smoother transition until green H2 costs significantly decrease by 2050. In this work, a novel, low-cost teal hydrogen (teal H2) plant, a mixture of blue and green H2 technologies, located in the Philippines which combines steam-methane reforming, rice husk gasification, and carbon capture by monoethanolamine absorption, is proposed. Setting a production rate of 9,000 kg H2/h, the techno-economic potential of five cases with varying natural gas to rice husk contribution ratios were evaluated using AspenPlus. The levelized cost of the 25:75 teal H2 case at 1.06 USD/kg is cheaper than blue H2 and green H2 by 4.37 and 2.34 USD/kg, respectively. Moreover, the CO2-equivalent emissions of the 25:75 teal H2 case at 0.002 t CO2 -eq/1,000 Nm3 H2 is 57.10 % and 39.25 % lower than those from blue H2 and green H2. As green H2 becomes more economical, rice husk feed to the gasification process can be gradually increased to favor biomass- over petroleum-derived H2. This case study is a successful proof of concept that teal H2 may help transition the energy sector to carbon neutrality.
