PNNL researchers announce waste-to-hydrogen conversion process

By Kevin Clark A research team at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has developed a system capable of converting waste from sewage, food crops, algae and other renewable carbon sources into hydrogen fuel.

PNNL’s electrocatalytic oxidation fuel recovery system turns waste carbon from farms, sewage and other sources into high-grade bio-based fuels, while simultaneously generating hydrogen. Until now, progress had been made converting waste to useful fuel but not completing the cycle using clean energy, researchers said.

PNNL said the key to making it all work is a catalyst that combines billions of immeasurably small metal particles and an electric current to
