4. IIT Guwahati scientists develop eco-friendly catalyst for green hydrogen fuel production.
Researchers at IIT Guwahati have developed a catalyst that can produce clean-burning hydrogen gas from wood alcohol, making it an attractive alternative to fossil fuels. The new process not only eliminates the need for high temperatures and pressure, but it also avoids carbon dioxide emissions by producing formic acid as a by-product. Methanol reforming, the process of generating hydrogen from wood alcohol, has two main problems. First, it requires high temperatures and pressure, which are not energy-efficient. Second, carbon dioxide, a potent greenhouse gas, is a by-product of the reaction.
