Low-Cost Green Hydrogen Production : Harnessing Sunlight with Natural Catalysts
A recently posted article in ScienceDaily says that experts from Swansea and Grenoble have joined forces to develop a low-cost way to produce green hydrogen using sustainable catalysts.
As per the article,
- Researchers have developed a low-cost catalyst that uses as little platinum as possible, which can be cheaply scaled for mass use
- The catalyst efficiently produces green hydrogen from sunlight, combining two components that cannot achieve this on their own
- Georgia Tech’s research team is also working on making green hydrogen less costly and more durable using hybrid materials for the electrocatalyst
- The ultimate goal is to replace expensive and rare noble metal components such as platinum and iridium with sustainable catalysts, allowing green hydrogen to provide low-carbon energy and fuels when and where needed
