Multi-institutional team led by Faculty Fellow unveils the new process for green hydrogen production

Via News from UIC:

University of Illinois Chicago engineers have helped design a new method to make hydrogen gas from water using only solar power and agricultural waste, such as manure or husks. The method reduces the energy needed to extract hydrogen from water by 600%, creating new opportunities for sustainable, climate-friendly chemical production.

Hydrogen-based fuels are one of the most promising sources of clean energy. But producing pure hydrogen gas is an energy-intensive process that often requires coal or natural gas and large amounts of electricity.

In a paper for Cell Reports Physical Science, a multi-institutional team led by UIC engineer and faculty fellow, Meenesh Singh unveils the new process for green hydrogen production.
