Innovative Method Pulls Hydrogen Fuel From Seawater Using Only Sunshine

By

Hydrogen has huge potential as a clean energy source. For instance, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, which are zero-emission and run on compressed hydrogen fed into a group of fuel cells that produces electricity to power the vehicle. A fuel cell can be used in combination with an electric motor to drive a vehicle – quietly, powerfully and cleanly. It's a great solution to fossil fuel-guzzling cars, but so far we haven't been able to make fuel cells cheaply or efficiently enough.

But a new method may have cracked the case. A team from the University of Central Florida has developed a nanomaterial that can release hydrogen from seawater much more cheaply and efficiently than existing methods, potentially giving us another way of unlocking this sustainable energy source.
