The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) announced a low-carbon hydrogen partnership today with British Petroleum (BP) and the Emirati renewable energy firm Masdar

ADNOC, which is owned by the Emirati government, and BP agreed to conduct a feasibility study for an unspecified low-carbon hydrogen energy project in Abu Dhabi. The two companies also pledged to explore the development of sustainable aviation fuels with Masdar and Etihad Airways. The fuel would be developed "solar-to-green hydrogen and municipal waste gasification," the Abu Dhabi Government Media Office said in a statement.
