Production of hydrogen fuel from seawater possible using novel nanomaterial

September 21, 2021

A team of researchers from the University of Central Florida has designed its first nanomaterial that can be used to extract hydrogen fuel from seawater.

The new nanomaterial can be used to efficiently split seawater into oxygen and hydrogen molecules.

The new nanomaterial offers the stability and high performance required for electrolysis on an industrial scale. Moreover, it could turn an abundant resource into a clean source of energy by using it to make hydrogen fuel from seawater.

H2 made out of ocean water has the potential to represent a widely available and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. That said, until now, considerable technical barriers have been in the way of its use, such as how to produce it in a practical way.
