Towards eco-friendly industrial-scale hydrogen production

Towards eco-friendly industrial-scale hydrogen production
What if industrial waste water could become fuel? With affordable, long-lasting catalysts, water could be split to produce hydrogen that could be used to power fuel cells or combustion engines. By conducting complex simulations, scientists showed that adding lithium to aluminum nanoparticles results in orders-of-magnitude faster water-splitting reactions and higher hydrogen production rates compared to pure aluminum nanoparticles. The lithium allowed all the aluminum atoms to react, which increased yields.

Researchers convert CO2 from the air into methanol

Researchers convert CO2 from the air into methanol
For the first time, researchers at the USC Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute have directly converted carbon dioxide from the air into methanol at relatively low temperatures. Prakash, Professor of Chemistry and Director, USC Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute, commented: “We need to learn to manage carbon. That is the future."
