EPFL using banana peels to maximise the production of hydrogen through photo-pyrolysis

An innovative breakthrough in technology has maximised the hydrogen yields that can be gained through biowaste in a few milliseconds – all of which with the use of banana peels.

The innovative method in producing hydrogen has been achieved by researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne using a rapid photo-pyrolysis process.

Biowaste presents a unique opportunity for the clean energy economy, by producing hydrogen from it, much of the pollution that normally goes to landfills can be converted into the clean energy carrier.
