Global Technology – October 2011

In related research, engineers at Penn State University have discovered that an “inexhaustible” source of hydrogen may be unlocked by salt water. In fact, a grain of salt or two may be all that microbial electrolysis cells need to produce hydrogen from waste-water or organic by-products, without adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. According to Bruce E. Logan, professor of environmental engineering, “This system could produce hydrogen anyplace that there is waste-water near sea water.  It uses no grid electricity and is completely carbon-neutral.  It is an inexhaustible source of energy......
