Aston University discovers potential of producing hydrogen from glycerol

Aston University has released research showing the possibility of producing renewable hydrogen and propane fuel gases from glycerol.

The HYDROGAS project is supported by Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions, the EU’s reference programme for doctoral and postdoctoral training, and it explore glycerol as a raw material to produce hydrogen gas and biopropane.

Glycerol is an organic compound and is produced mainly from fats and oils, often being used in health and beauty products. Crude glycerol from biodiesel production plants is cheap and abundant, meaning researchers can explore its potential for creating hydrogen.
