A major step forward in the development of viable replacements for fossil fuels -

Prof. Avner Rothschild, a scientific management member of the I-CORE in Solar Fuels, and his research team in the Technion Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering have made a breakthrough in solar fuels.

 

The researchers have found a novel way to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. The breakthrough, published this week in "Nature Materials", could lead to less expensive, more efficient ways to store solar energy in the form of hydrogen-based fuels. This could be a major step forward in the development of viable replacements for fossil fuels.
