Hydrogen fuel storage tanks are no longer needed because of this new method for producing hydrogen fuel at high flow rates using carbon, one of the world’s safest and lowest-cost industrial materials. This hydrogen-from-water breakthrough was a result of a catalytic chemistry development that successfully splits water to produce hydrogen, while retaining oxygen in the water.

Before this new process was developed, the use of hydrogen fuel was limited by the lack of an inexpensive catalyst that can speed up the generation of hydrogen from water. “Now that we have found new ways of rationally designing catalysts, we can speed up the development of new catalytic materials enormously.”
