OSU researchers take key step toward mass production of hydrogen from water

CORVALLIS, Ore. (KTVZ) – Efficiently mass-producing hydrogen from water is closer to becoming a reality, thanks to Oregon State University College of Engineering researchers and collaborators at Cornell University and the Argonne National Laboratory. The scientists used advanced experimental tools to forge a clearer understanding of an electrochemical catalytic process that’s cleaner and more sustainable than deriving hydrogen from natural gas. Findings were published Friday in Science Advances. Hydrogen is found…

Hydrogen and Energy Intensity and Utilization

This nascent hydrogen segment explains it in terms of energy intensity and utilization. Valery Miftakhov from ZeroAvia, developers of zero-emission powertrains for aircraft powered by hydrogen, says aircraft have much higher energy intensity and utilization than cars. As such, they should be the focus of attention for hydrogen backers. In an article for Aeronautics Online, Miftakhov compared intensity and utilization rates for cars and aircraft, in other words the portion…
