Australian duo explore thermo-photocatalysis for hydrogen production

An Australian collaboration is looking to develop a process which utilises the sun’s radiation and thermal properties to convert water into hydrogen and oxygen.

Sparc Technology today (Oct 27) confirmed that it has joined forces with the University of Adelaide to collaborate of the unique process which aims to produce commercially viable “ultra-green” hydrogen.

Once developed, the use of the technology would mean renewable energy hotspots, such as wind and solar farms, do not need to be exploiting for hydrogen production. As a result of this, the overall cost of hydrogen production is expected to be significantly lower.

Dr Stephen Rodda, Executive Director of Innovation and Commercial at the University of Adelaide, said, “This joint venture is a perfect example of the University of Adelaide’s internationally regarded research being brough to a commercial outcome, which we hope has benefits for industry and the community.
