Where does hydrogen come from?

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, and is found in water, natural gas and many other sources. It bonds with other elements to form commonly known molecules such as water, methane (natural gas) and methanol. Hydrogen is “produced” by unlocking the chemical bonds in the molecules that form these substances. Today, most hydrogen is made from natural gas, some from electrolysis of water and some from bio-methane. By making hydrogen from many different sources, every region of the world can produce its own fuel, which is good for the environment and the local economy.
