2012 Research HIghlight: Production of Sustainable Energy Takes a Step Forward

“Developing chemical processes that will facilitate mass production of economical, environment-friendly solar and wind electricity is one of the biggest challenges of the energy crisis,” said Dismukes. “The noble metal catalysts that are presently used in electrolyzers, the devices that convert direct electric current harnessed by solar panels into fuels, are very expensive. We have synthesized, patented and licensed a catalyst process that will be nearly as efficient as the current standard and is comprised of elements that are up to 10 million times more abundant in nature, and much less expensive.” Click here for full article.
