MIT to work on using tin to produce hydrogen without CO2 emissions

MIT’s Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage Centre has awarded US$750,000 to undertake a research project using molten tin to produce hydrogen with no carbon dioxide emissions (CO2). The fund was designed to support projects that advance carbon...

Tin battles climate change: latest carbon capture R&D

Teams of scientists around the world are pushing forward research on new generations of tin catalysts to battle climate change. Several recently published scientific papers describe new tin prototypes and insights that advance the efficiency and selectivity of...

Low-cost tin catalyst discovered for hydrogen cells

The world needs to move towards a greener future, using fewer fossil fuels. Part of that future may be powered by hydrogen but the technology to do so must be cost-effective and durable. New research highlights tin as ‘promising alternative’ for cheaper...

Tin helps turn waste into hydrogen in sunlight

The world needs to move towards a greener future, using fewer fossil fuels. Part of that future may be powered by hydrogen but it will need to be produced cost-effectively and sustainably. Two recent discoveries appear to enable this, with tin playing a central role....
