A Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory team have new tools allowing scientists to zoom in on a catalytic reaction that’s been a bottleneck in efforts to generate hydrogen from water more efficiently. The bottleneck is a problem in transitioning to a hydrogen economy that will require massive production of cheap hydrogen gas for […]

Nagoya Institute of Technology researchers have developed a novel membrane that efficiently purifies hydrogen fuel from a mixture of gases. Hydrogen is a clean source of fuel, but its purification has been challenging until now. Now, a group of scientists has found a solution – by characterizing a hybrid separation membrane for purifying hydrogen from […]

Washington State University (WSU) researchers have developed a new way to make low-cost, single-atom catalysts for fuel cells. The advance that could make important clean energy technology more economically viable. The team’s study results have been published in the journal Advanced Energy Materials. Hydrogen fuel cells will be critical for a hydrogen fueled energy economy […]

KTH The Royal Institute of Technology researchers have successfully tested a new material that can be used for cheap and large-scale production of hydrogen. Currently precious metals are the standard catalyst materials used for extracting hydrogen from water. The problem is these materials such as platinum, ruthenium and iridium – are too expensive. A team […]

A University of Wisconsin at Madison research team reports a hydrogen making catalyst containing phosphorus and sulfur – both common elements – and cobalt, a metal that is 1,000 times cheaper than platinum. Like gasoline, natural gas and other petrochemicals, hydrogen could also be used to store energy. Hydrogen could be the ideal fuel: Whether […]
