Engineers developed a breakthrough method to generate hydrogen gas in one-step process

Deena Theresa writes about a hydrogen gas breakthrough in Interesting Engineering.

The C3 Take
  • Engineers at Rice University have developed a way to transform hydrogen sulfide, which is a byproduct of the petrochemical industry, into hydrogen fuel.
  • Specifically the team at Rice University has created a method that derives energy from light and employs gold nanoparticles to convert hydrogen sulfide and sulfur in one step.
  • This breakthrough gives industries and cities an economical way to remove highly poisonous hydrogen sulfide from sewer gas and animal waste.

“In comparison, current catalytic technology refineries work through a method known as the Claus process, which requires multiple steps. Also, it produces sulfur but no hydrogen, which is converted into water.”
