Scientists Develop Catalyst-free Route to High-purity Hydrogen

8:01 AM MDT | July 21, 2010 | Laura Templer

Arvind Varma, professor of chemical engineering at Purdue University (Indiana) has filed a patent for a process to generate hydrogen at low cost and to a high level of purity. The technology works by combining hydrolysis and thermolysis to generate hydrogen. The level of purity achieved by the process would generate hydrogen suitable for running fuel-cells in cars, Varma says.   “This is the first process to provide exceptionally high hydrogen yield values at near the fuel-cell operating temperatures without using a catalyst, making it promising for...
