UNSW Sydney chemists have invented a new, cheap catalyst for splitting water with an electrical current to efficiently produce clean hydrogen fuel.
The Company expects that their LightFuel™ Hydrogen will be used in Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs).
This could also lead to a fundamental change in the entire process of producing hydrogen fuel.
Water is made of oxygen and hydrogen, and splitting water molecules to produce hydrogen for fuel is a promising path for alternative energy.
Following in the footsteps of the revolutionary solar powered airplane Solar Impulse, the world’s first renewable energy powered boat, the Energy Observer, is planning a historic round-the-world trip in February 2017.
These projects will accelerate American innovation in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies by supporting research and development and domestic manufacturing.
