Belgian Scientists Invent Device That Gets Hydrogen From Polluted Air

Scientists have struggled to devise solutions to the age-old problem of sourcing energy in the most efficient way possible, while also tackling the pollution that can comes from conventional power sources. According to a recent announcement from Belgium, a team of researchers from the Universities of Antwerp and Leuven has presented a device that can obtain hydrogen from polluted air. The small appliance, shown on that scale for proof of concept, needs to be exposed to light to be able to operate, and comes with the bonus of purifying the air while extracting hydrogen from it. Each of the two “abilities” of the invention has the possibility of being a valuable characteristic, but blending them into a single unit should make this product special in the world.
