The team showed that the device could run efficiently for 12 consecutive days and produced hydrogen with 99 percent purity.
A pilot project at Keele University is pumping out a mix of 80 percent natural gas and 20 percent hydrogen made by electrolysis in a shipping container sized unit.
Orsted, a Danish company, anticipates that the scale and efficiency of wind farms at sea can play a crucial role to supply heavy industry with green hydrogen. Hydrogen is one of the few fuels that can burn hot enough to make steel and cement.
A widely-used gas that is currently produced from fossil fuels can instead be made by an 'artificial leaf' that uses only sunlight, carbon dioxide and water, and which could eventually be used to develop a sustainable liquid fuel alternative to gasoline.
It's challenging to electrify aviation using batteries or fuel cells in part because of the weight restrictions on aircraft, so liquid biofuels have the potential to play a big role in greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
The novel European Space Agency technology would scoop up atmospheric nitrogen and oxygen during near-Earth orbits and turn it into fuel.
The forthcoming Tri-Gen facility is being called "the world's first megawatt-scale 100% renewable power and hydrogen generation station."
Researchers have made a significant breakthrough in the direct conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) into liquid fuels and chemicals which could help industry to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Researches have identified an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of fats to long hydrocarbons, which could be used as fuel with no further modification.
This waste-to-resource project not only produces a less smoky and long-burning fire, but could also help improve health and sanitation outcomes.
Researchers in Switzerland have developed a method for splitting carbon dioxide using solar energy, which could help provide a way to turn the greenhouse gas into fuel.
Future Americano, cappuccino, and latte drinkers could help produce the raw material for a greener biofuel that would reduce our reliance on diesel from fossil fuels.
The global advanced biofuel market is likely to grow close to 44 percent by 2021, according to a latest report.
