Washington State University researchers used the ethanol and water mixture and a small amount of electricity in a novel conversion system to produce pure compressed hydrogen. The researcher’s press release claims the new efficient way to produce hydrogen gas from ethanol and water has the potential to make clean hydrogen fuel a more viable alternative […]

North Carolina State University researchers have developed a new technique for extracting hydrogen gas from liquid carriers. The new technique is faster, less expensive and more energy efficient than previous concepts. Milad Abolhasani, corresponding author of a paper on the new technique and an associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at NC State offered […]

A Boston College team of researchers has achieved the first ‘unassisted’ solar water splitting using the abundant rust-like mineral hematite and silicon to capture and store solar energy into hydrogen gas. So far finding an efficient solar water splitting method to mine electron-rich hydrogen for clean power has been thwarted by the poor performance of […]

While a few hold on to the pure hydrogen gas fuel idea, hydrogen for industrial use and fuel production is in great demand with a need for declining prices. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have come up with an extraordinarily efficient two-step process that electrolyzes, or separates, hydrogen atoms […]

Entropic energy offers a tremendous resource available from the salinity difference between freshwater and seawater, but this energy has yet to be efficiently captured and stored. Penn State’s Bruce E. Logan, Kappe Professor of Environmental Engineering has demonstrated that di-hydrogen gas can be produced in a single process by capturing the salinity driven energy together […]
