New, more efficient method for harvesting sustainable hydrogen

The production of hydrogen fuel from sunlight and water offers one of the most promising pathways to carbon neutrality. However, some solar hydrogen production approaches, such as photoelectrochemical water splitting, show low yield stability and environmental sustainability. And other methods, such as photocatalytic water splitting, have very low solar-to-hydrogen (STH) efficiency. Now, engineering researchers at …

Another Pathway Towards A Better Sustainable Electrocatalyst For Efficient Hydrogen Technology – Eurasia Review

A new Opto-Electronic Advances publication discusses other pathways to a more sustainable electrocatalyst for efficient hydrogen technology. When fossil fuels are burned, massive amounts of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, are released into the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases, which trap heat in the Earth’s atmosphere, are to blame for global warming. Sea level rise, inclement weather, …
