Researchers leverage renewable electricity for widespread, distributed hydrogen fuel production. Northwestern University researchers have developed a highly effective, environmentally friendly method for converting ammonia into hydrogen. Outlined in a recent publication in the journal Joule, the new technique is a major step forward for enabling a zero-pollution, hydrogen-fueled economy. The idea of using ammonia […]

Kötlujökull, the fourth largest glacier in Iceland, hosts abundant microorganisms sustained by hydrogen produced by weathering of basaltic bedrock. Credit: Eric S. Boyd. Using years of data collected from ice-covered habitats all over the world, a Montana State University team has discovered new insights into the processes that support microbial […]

The findings of the international research team […]

Unique hydrogenation research led by CCNY’s Mahesh Lakshman is the inside cover feature in the journal Advanced Synthesis and Catalysis. Credit: Advanced Synthesis and Catalysis Chemists Develop Safer Hydrogenation Processes Safe and environmentally-friendly hydrogen gas on-demand could be on the horizon following a new “hydrogenation” chemical process in development at […]
