Fuel Cells just got a whole lot cheaper

Researchers at Tufts University have found that they can reduce the cost of Hydrogen that will power fuel cell technology. Fuel Cells combine Hydrogen and Oxygen to produce electricity, and the only emission is pure water.

Gold and Platinum are typically used as a catalyst to split water into its component Hydrogen and Oxygen, and these expensive elements drove up the cost of the Hydrogen. Now, researchers have found they can conduct this reaction with only traces of these elements in non-metallic form.
