New Biofuels To Base On Light And Hydrogen



electricity from hydrogen
Nowadays, biofuel cells use glucose-processing enzymes to create electricity; however recently, researchers have regarded light and hydrogen relevant to the creation of more efficient fuel cells. The European Research Council funded the project on biofuel cells based on bacterial enzymes incorporating light or hydrogen gas in their chemical reactions to produce energy, with a £1.42 million grant. Leeds project is to add two specific groups of enzymes: one tending towards light, the other – towards hydrogen, into a basic battery technique, with both enzymes demonstrating promising results. Testing the electrodes on living bacterial cells in the final part of this project will help scientists understand how to take advantage of the processes in electrical applications.
