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