Researchers at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) report a new study that could lead to improved catalysts for producing hydrogen fuel from waste biomass. The A*STAR experimental analysis and computer simulations reveal new insights into the process by which ethanol produced from waste biomass can be converted into hydrogen in the presence […]

University of New South Wales (UNSW) scientists have developed a highly efficient oxygen-producing catalyzing electrode for splitting water. The electrode has the potential to be scaled up for industrial production of the energy fuel hydrogen. The new technology is based on an inexpensive, specially coated foam material that lets the bubbles of oxygen escape quickly. […]

California Institute of Technology scientists inspired by a chemical process found in leaves have developed an electrically conductive film that could help pave the way for devices capable of harnessing sunlight to split water into hydrogen fuel. Nate Lewis, the George L. Argyros Professor and professor of chemistry at Caltech explains the high point, “We […]

A researcher at Missouri University of Science and Technology has discovered a bacterium that can produce hydrogen. Dr. Melanie Mormile, professor of biological sciences at Missouri S&T, and her team discovered the bacterium Halanaerobium hydrogeninformans in Soap Lake, Washington. In her first single-author article, Mormile’s findings were featured in the Nov. 19 edition of Frontiers […]

Luwei Chen, Armando Borgna and colleagues at the A*STAR Institute of Chemical and Engineering Sciences have developed a long-lived catalyst in a new first step in viable ethanol fueled small-scale on-board hydrogen generators. Hydrogen is a renewable resource with the potential to power everything from households to cars, but its use is currently limited by […]
