Abstract

Many developed countries are committed to developing a hydrogen economy, but most of the technologies for generating the alternative energy source use fossil fuels. Although hydrogen can be produced from renewable resources such as biomass, typically only 15% of the energy available can be recovered as the reactive gas. Bruce Logan of Pennsylvania State University offers a strategy for recovering much of the remaining 85%.
