Curtin University research yields game changing results for cheaper clean hydrogen production

New research at Curtin University, Australia, has yielded results that could prove to be a gamechanger for clean hydrogen production.

Researchers have found that by adding nickel and cobalt to cheaper, previously ineffective catalysts enhances their performance, which lowers the energy required to split the water and increases the yield of hydrogen.

This could be a gamechanger for the industry with scientists having previously used precious metal catalysts, such as platinum, to accelerate the reaction to break water into both hydrogen and oxygen.
