Researchers have engineered a strain of electricity-producing bacteria that can grow using hydrogen gas as its sole electron donor and carbon dioxide as its sole source of carbon.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have discovered a low-cost, stable, effective catalyst that could replace costly platinum in the production of hydrogen.
A team of Virginia Tech researchers has discovered a way to extract large quantities of hydrogen from any plant, a breakthrough that has the potential to bring a low-cost, environmentally friendly fuel source to the world.
There are many challenges to achieving the dreamed-about hydrogen economy, but one of them – the ability to make hydrogen from water cheaply and at scale – could be a little closer to being overcome. If it indeed is, renewable energy could become a whole lot more economical.
So-called super-Earths - rocky exoplanets much larger than our own - may actually be more like mini-Neptunes.
Super-small particles of silicon react with water to produce hydrogen almost instantaneously, University at Buffalo researchers have discovered.
A study of water from the Martian interior shows that Mars was originally formed from similar building blocks to Earth, but evolved differently later on.
Using sunlight and ultrathin films of iron oxide, or rust, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology researchers have found a new way to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen.
NASA's Dawn spacecraft has discovered evidence of water on the surface of the asteroid Vesta - but not much of it.
Is the finish line for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in sight for Hyundai?
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are something auto manufacturers continue to kick around with the promise they might actually see significant numbers on the road someday.
Of late we've been noting the rising trend of green cars at the racetrack. Vehicles such as the Kleenspeed EV-X11, Drayson B12/69EV and Audi R8 e-tron have been setting lap records at respected tracks around the world.
When a solid-oxide fuel cell runs out of hydrogen, it takes about 15 seconds for the electrochemical reaction to wind down. Think of it as a little dose of free energy.
Astronomers have confirmed the existence of a 'bridge' of hydrogen gas connecting two of our neighboring galaxies, indicating that they may once have brushed together.
A novel design might be the next big breakthrough in the pursuit of hydrogen from clean sources.
New nuclear plants could be adapted to make hydrogen for fuel, an Austrian scientist told the world’s largest scientific society.
A new process for producing fuel cells could help bring the cost of hydrogen cars down significantly within 10 years, researchers claim.
Nuclear power plants can produce hydrogen to fuel the 'hydrogen economy', say scientists from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna.
Engineers have built a robotic jellyfish, fueled by hydrogen, which they say could be used in underwater rescue missions.
A team from the University of Central Florida reckons it's found a way to make hydrogen fuel cells much cheaper to build - and more efficient.
