Rice University researchers have integrated high-efficiency perovskite solar cells and electrode catalysts into an efficient, low-cost device that splits water to produce hydrogen fuel. The platform developed by the Brown School of Engineering lab of Rice materials scientist Jun Lou integrates catalytic electrodes and perovskite solar cells that, when triggered by sunlight, produce electricity. The […]

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 […]

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 […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München researchers have found a kind of electrode made of a highly porous material that does an excellent job with just a hint of expensive iridium. Iridium is an ideal catalyst for the electrolytic production of hydrogen from water – but it is extremely expensive. Today, the path to the effective electrolysis of […]

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and University of California, Davis chemists are one step closer to recreating nature’s most efficient machinery for generating hydrogen gas. Researchers from the Oregon Health and Science University also contributed to this study. This new development may help clear the path for the hydrogen fuel industry to move into a […]
