Hydrogen purification method


Researchers have devised a new, far more efficient method of producing hydrogen cells.

There is no doubt that hydrogen powered vehicles are the way forward if the world is serious about reducing damage to the environment, but at present there are still huge barriers to overcome in order for us to make any significant improvement.

Hydrogen needs to be purified before it can be used as fuel for fuel cells in electric vehicles; this process is costly and not very clean, meaning the likelihood of the vehicles being put into mass production in the near future is slim.

Current methods of producing hydrogen first yield hydrogen combined with carbon dioxide, or hydrogen combined with carbon dioxide and methane.
