Queensland Scientists Discover Cheap New Catalyst for Making Hydrogen

Posted by Peter, on November 29, 2018

Researchers at the Queensland University of Technology have discovered cheaper and more efficient materials for producing hydrogen for the storage of renewable energy that could replace current water-splitting catalysts.  Continue reading »

“Hydrogen Innovation Hub” for Perth

Posted by Peter, on July 10, 2018

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency has announced $1.5 million in funding for Australia’s first green hydrogen innovation hub to be located at ATCO Australia’s facility in the Perth suburb of Jandakot.  Continue reading »

Aussie Researchers Demonstrate World First Proton Battery

Posted by Peter, on March 12, 2018

Researchers from the RMIT in Melbourne have demonstrated for the first time a working rechargeable “proton battery” which is environmentally friendly, used cheap materials and has the potential to store more energy than currently available lithium-ion batteries.  Continue reading »

SA to Trial Supplementing Gas with Hydrogen from Surplus Wind

Posted by Peter, on August 8, 2017

A pilot plant is to be set up in Adelaide to trial the injection of small quantities of hydrogen, produced with surplus renewable electricity, into the gas distribution network.  Continue reading »

RMIT Develops Paint Which Releases Hydrogen from Moisture

Posted by Peter, on June 16, 2017

A team of researchers at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology has developed a material that absorbs water vapor from the air, and then uses the energy of sunlight to split those water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen.  Continue reading »

CSIRO Membrane Could Create Hydrogen Export Market

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 Company Uses Iron Ore to Extract Hydrogen from Natural Gas

Posted by Peter, on August 2, 2016

A Western Australian company, the Hazer Group, is currently scaling-up a patented process, based on “methane cracking”, which it says will halve the cost of hydrogen production.   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 Cheaper Method of Producing Hydrogen

Posted by Peter, on April 9, 2015

Scientists at the University of New South Wales have developed a highly efficient oxygen-producing electrode for splitting water to produce hydrogen. The process has the potential to be scaled up for the industrial production of the clean energy fuel. Hydrogen has great potential for storing electricity and as a fuel but the majority of hydrogen […]  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 »

Progress on Energy from Algae

Posted by Peter, on May 6, 2008

Scientists at Innoventures Canada (I-CAN) have reported significant progress towards creating a system that would convert carbon dioxide diverted from industrial facilities into valuable products using Earth’s oldest plant life – micro-algae. I-CAN is a not-for-profit consortium of ten Canadian research corporations who have joined together for key strategic projects. Its CARS project – Carbon […]  Continue reading »
