Motivated by our vision, united by our values, we do what’s right. Make a difference to create a cleaner and healthier world, today and for future generations.

We have an opportunity to be at the forefront, leading the way in the hydrogen economy. Push your expertise further as we work at the leading edge of science and technology, you’ll work on sustainable solutions, creating breakthrough results that deliver value for our customers.

Hydrogen will be an important energy carrier in the new energy ecosystem. Current estimates show that production will need to increase ten fold by 2050 if it's to fulfil its potential as a clean transportation fuel, as a cleaner industry feedstock, and for domestic heat and power.

Net zero emissions requires a significant shift in the global economy from widespread use of fossil fuels, with their accompanying levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, to one of carbon neutrality. Hydrogen is a key piece of the puzzle to reaching net zero, if that hydrogen is produced via a low carbon route.  

Manufacturing blue hydrogen at scale is an essential early step in reducing global carbon dioxide emissions, enabling net zero emissions. JM's innovative Low Carbon Hydrogen (LCH™) technology is ready to go to market and allows blue hydrogen to be produced at scale.  

JM ia a place to courageously face outwards, to lead and shape our markets. Tackling some of the world’s biggest challenges, there’s no better place to push your expertise further.

Make a difference today to create a cleaner and healthier world, together.
