A cheap and effective new catalyst developed by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, can generate hydrogen fuel from water just as efficiently as platinum, currently the best — but also most expensive — water-splitting catalyst out there.

Low-Cost Catalyst from U of T Engineering Boosts Hydrogen Production from Water

By | News, Research News | No Comments December 13, 2018 | 3 min read December 13, 2018 | 3 min read

A future powered by carbon-free fuel depends on our ability to harness and store energy from renewable but intermittent sources, such as solar and wind. Now, a new catalyst developed at U of T Engineering gives a boost to a number of clean energy technologies that depend on producing hydrogen from water.
