Cut the BS: This startup is converting cow manure into clean-burning hydrogen fuel

Lisa Stiffler writes in GeekWire about a company that is converting cow manure into clean hydrogen.

  • The startup will convert cow waste into natural gas, and turn this natural gas into clean hydrogen.
  • Modern Electron hopes that this project will reduce animal waste runoff in streams near farms, while decarbonizing home heating.
