Sustainable Hydrogen Production

Converting renewable energy or materials into non-polluting fuels is a major challenge. Hydrogen (H2) is a clean and renewable energy source as primary alternatives to fossil fuels. A highly promising study is (photo)catalytic to produce H2 through appropriate chemical reactions. H2 can be produced from a variety of primary or renewable sources such as water, natural gas, and lignocellulosic biomass. Papers in this thematic series will introduce and review recent advances in the development of eco-friendly process for hydrogen production specifically by utilizing the catalytic water splitting, photochemical devices, and lignocellulosic biomass.
