Chris Young of Interesting Engineering reports on a new method of hydrogen extraction.
- Researchers at UC Santa Cruz have developed a cost-effective way to extract 90% of hydrogen that is in aluminum.
- Hydrogen is extracted by combining gallium and aluminum to create a composite that allows aluminum nanoparticles to react rapidly with water, producing hydrogen
- Green hydrogen, which is hydrogen that is produced with zero emissions energy, is one fuel carrier that will be needed in order to decarbonize multiple sectors of the economy.
- This discovery could pave the way to the mass production of affordable hydrogen.
