A Northwestern University research team has designed and synthesized a new material with ultrahigh porosity and surface area for the storage of hydrogen and methane for fuel cell-powered vehicles. These gases are attractive clean energy alternatives to carbon dioxide-producing fossil fuels. The material is a type of a metal-organic framework (MOF) that can store significantly […]

DOE/Idaho National Laboratory’s researchers have developed a new electrode material for an electrochemical cell that can efficiently convert excess electricity and water into hydrogen. When demand for electricity increases, the electrochemical cell is reversible, converting hydrogen back into electricity for the grid. The hydrogen could also be used as fuel for heat, vehicles or other […]

Aalto University researchers have developed a promising graphene-carbon nanotube catalyst for the oxygen reduction reaction and oxygen evolution reaction. Fuel cells and water electrolyzers that are low cost and efficient would form the cornerstone of a hydrogen fuel based economy, one of the most promising clean and sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels. These devices rely […]

A Washington State University team has developed a less expensive water electrolysis system that works under alkaline conditions but still produces hydrogen at comparable rates to the currently used system that works under acidic conditions and requires precious metals. This advance brings down the cost of water splitting technology, offering a more viable way to […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology research now can show a new biofuel system that uses lignin found in biomass for the production of hydrogen. The novel technology has been developed for hydrogen production from the process, which involves electrons that are produced during the decomposition of biomass such as waste wood. The […]
