Global Hydrogen

27.09.2022

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has released a new report series on global hydrogen, showing the importance of its commercial transport and trade for the establishment of a more diversified and sustainable energy system as well as CO2 emissions reduction. Hydrogen is the most important component of a...

New Method for Hydrogen Storage could Help Phase Out Fossil Fuels

05.09.2022

Hydrogen is increasingly becoming one of the major players in achieving independence from fossil fuels. However, making out the perfect material for storing hydrogen either in gaseous or liquid form has brought along its own set of problems. When in gaseous form, hydrogen requires high-pressure tanks (350–700 bar [5,000–10,000...

Plant Residue for Hydrogen Production

03.08.2022

In our modern world, tremendous amounts of organic waste, such as agricultural residues, food waste and animal manure, are produced every day. The greater part of this waste is transported to composting plants and incinerated to gain heat and electricity. This process often releases significant amounts of CO2 into the...

Improved reformer for methanol-to-hydrogen conversion

06.05.2022

Hydrogen is considered to be one of the most important resources for the energy transition as it can be used as a transport fuel but also energise industrial processes. However, there are still several obstacles, which inhibit the widespread application of hydrogen. One of them is that hydrogen is not easy to transport. A...

Modified Catalysts for Improved Hydrogen Production

27.04.2022

Cars running on hydrogen are one of the greatest hopes for achieving a cleaner environment. They are similar to electric vehicles because they also use an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. However, unlike electric vehicles they are able to produce their own electricity: in a fuel cell, hydrogen (H2) gas...

Direct Conversion of Methane to Hydrogen by Pyrolysis: Status and Prospects

17.02.2022

Introduction Increasing the use of hydrogen in modern energy is a prerequisite for its transition towards low-carbon forms of energy production and consumption. Hydrogen is unique primarily because it can be used both as an environmentally friendly fuel and as a medium for energy storage. However, the global hydrogen...

New Discovery Improves Ethylene and Hydrogen Stability

10.02.2022

The ability of plants to convert sunlight, water and carbon dioxide into carbohydrates and oxygen has fascinated scientists for many years, serving as an inspiration to emulate nature and design similar processes to turn sunlight into sustainable fuels. These processes are summarised under the term artificial synthesis,...

Global hydrogen development: great potential to accelerate the energy transition

30.10.2021

The World Energy Council recently published a series of working papers and reports on the global development of hydrogen and its role in the energy transition. The publications explore demand dynamics and price changes for hydrogen, as well as national strategies around the world to support the development of hydrogen...

Production of hydrogen from scrap aluminium and water

23.09.2021

In the constant search for cleaner transportation and industry fuels as well as means of power generation, scientists have long been concerned with finding more eco-friendly ways to produce hydrogen as this energy source usually does not release CO2 emissions. Its generation, however, is responsible for a lot of pollution,...

Water electrolysis

Germanium-tin co-doped-hematite perovskites to improve water-splitting

03.09.2021

Photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting uses sunlight and photoelectrochemical materials to produce hydrogen from water. These photoelectrochemical materials help to directly split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. The semiconductor materials used in the process are similar to those used in photovoltaic solar...
