Posted by Peter, on May 10, 2017

The CSIRO has developed a thin metal membrane which separates pure hydrogen from ammonia and other chemicals, opening up the possibility of large-scale safe transportation of hydrogen for applications such as fuel cell vehicles.  Continue reading »

Aussie Scientists Announce “Artificial Leaf” Breakthrough

Posted by Peter, on August 20, 2015

Researches at Monash University, led by Professor Doug MacFarlane, have announced they have succeeded in extracting hydrogen and oxygen from water and sunlight at record efficiency in a process which mimics photosynthesis. Such “artificial leaf” technology is considered to be practically efficient if 10% of the solar energy used is captured and used to produce […]  Continue reading »

Aussie Scientists Develop Promising Hydrogen Storage Material

Posted by Peter, on December 8, 2012

Engineers at the University of New South Wales have developed a light weight, nano-engineered material that can store and release hydrogen, overcoming a major hurdle to its use as an alternative fuel source. The engineers have synthesised nanoparticles of sodium borohydride and encased these inside nickel shells. The unique "core-shell" nanostructure has remarkable hydrogen storage […]  Continue reading »
