Hydrogen production at room temperature from seawater moves closer to commercialization with a new catalyst

Idea Highlights

 

  • Fast, One-Step Assembly at Room Temperature Yields High Efficiency at Low Cost
  • Seawater makes up about 96% of all water on earth, making it a tempting resource to meet the world’s growing need for clean drinking water and carbon-free energy.
  • But existing methods require multiple steps performed at high temperatures over a lengthy period of time in order to produce a catalyst with the needed efficiency. That requires substantial amounts of energy and drives up the cost.
  • Researchers from the University of Houston have reported an oxygen evolving catalyst that takes just minutes to grow at room temperature on commercially available nickel foam.
  • Speedy, low-cost production is critical to commercialization.
  • “We found a way to reduce the cost so commercialization will be easier and more acceptable to customers.”
