Hydrogen Energy for Guam Using Seawater Electrolysis

Beth Mundy of Pacific Northwest National Lab writes about the lab’s efforts to produce hydrogen with seawater.

The C3 Take
  • The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is partnering with a team from Guam to research ways to harness ocean water to produce hydrogen energy.
  • While the science of using freshwater to produce hydrogen via electrolysis is well-established, using seawater (which includes metals, salt, and carbon-based molecules) is a bit more tricky.
  • The results of this research could allow Guam to harness its abundance of sea water to produce clean, reliable hydrogen.

“The abundant seawater surrounding Guam provides an enticing energy source: hydrogen. Through a process called electrolysis, energy from electricity splits water into hydrogen and oxygen. This generates a fuel that can also be stored and used when renewable electricity is not available.”
