Hydrogen fuel is a promising source of clean energy that can be produced by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen gas. The reaction is difficult but achievable with the help of a catalyst, a material that can speed up the process. However, current catalysts lack the efficiency required for water splitting to be commercially competitive

Researchers are studying how to make biofuels from farm waste, especially 'wet' waste, such as corn husks, tomato vines and manure, that is typically difficult to use. They have developed a fairly simple procedure, pressure cooking, to transport waste and produce energy from it. Cooking farm waste yields compact, easily transportable material that will not degrade and can be used in energy

NASHUA – There’s a new and renewable place to get rid of the leftover grease after all that Thanksgiving cooking – recycle it into fuel, of course. Nashua has started accepting fats, oil and grease from people’s cooking at the Nashua Recycling Center. Just pour the used cooking material into a container (only liquids – no solids, such as lard) and hand it over at the landfill
