Plants are all around us. Every plant has the sugar called xylose.
And thanks to a research team from Virginia Tech, we can get hydrogen virtually everywhere that has a green photosynthesizing machine in sight.
The team, led by Percival Zhang, has found a way to extract large amounts of hydrogen gas from xylose, and it’s not via electrolysis or reforming precious natural gas. But despite the scientific breakthrough, it will be at least three years before technologies utilizing this method will be able to hit the market.
If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
