No matter what feedstock would be used, nowadays I wouldn't hold my breath for hydrogen to be ever a mainstream fuel. It seems like most of the people who were excited about the perspectives of hydrogen-powered vehicles about 15 to 20 years ago have now turned their support to battery-electric vehicles, plus for other applications where the ability to burn some fuel remains desirable even if that's only as a backup power generation are more likely to rely on something like microturbines that can run on nearly anything that vaporizes into their combustion chambers.
