A new process for extracting hydrogen from a liquid fuel could sweep aside one obstacle to a “hydrogen economy”.
Hydrogen produced from renewable resources is a promising source of clean energy, but the gas is difficult to handle and transport.
An international team has now published details of an efficient, low-temperature method for generating it from methanol.
This can then be used to produce electricity using a fuel cell.
The research has been outlined in the journal Nature.
Hydrogen has a high energy density and is clean – burning to leave only water vapour.
