Researchers create green fuel with the flip of a light switch

November 28, 2022

The Hydrogen Economy promises to slash carbon pollution with clean engines and fuel cells, but high cost and logistical challenges have stalled its rollout. Now, researchers at Princeton and Rice Universities have used cheap materials like iron and light from a standard LED to break part of the hydrogen logjam. Using nanotechnology, the researchers demonstrated a cheap and efficient method to split hydrogen from liquid ammonia. The technique offers a clear path to transporting and storing hydrogen for use in fuel cells, engines and industry.
