UT researchers to transform untapped oil into clean hydrogen energy

Researchers from the University of Texas at Austin have found a way to convert untapped oil into clean hydrogen energy – and the work has been recognised by the US Department of Energy (DOE).

The University on Monday (August 23) said it is pushing an innovation combination of in-situ combustion and carbon dioxide (CO2) storage to lead the transformation that could result in relatively cheap hydrogen.

Recognised by DOE, the effort could represent a major stepping-stone in the department’s goal to reduce the cost of clean hydrogen by 80% to £1/kg in just one decade to accelerate clean energies.
