US university develops faster, cheaper, and more efficient hydrogen extraction technique

North Carolina State University (NCSU), announced on Monday (May 23), that its researchers have developed a new, faster, cheaper and more efficient technique of extracting hydrogen from liquid carriers.

The newly developed technique applies a reusable photocatalyst and sunlight to extract hydrogen gas from its liquid carrier quickly and using less rhodium than existing techniques.

In the prototype reactor, the researchers were able to achieve a 99% yield, meaning that 99% of the hydrogen molecules were released from the liquid carrier, in three hours, the university claims.
