Tin in Hydrogen Generation

The hydrogen economy is still largely in the future as a concept, but there are already some uses and an increasing investment in visionary projects such as the hydrogen aeroplane. Tin has already been shown to have potential to significantly reduce the costs and sustainability of hydrogen production technologies, notably in use as a liquid metal to strip carbon from methane and as an oxide or sulphide photocatalyst to split water in sunlight.

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 dioxide-reducing...

Tin helps turn waste into hydrogen in sunlight

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....
