 2020-11-19

Cover picture for the articleA novel catalyst synthesis method, capable of generating hydrogen from yeasts, the main microorganisms involved in alcohol and bread fermentation, has been developed. The new system can efficiently decompose water into oxygen and hydrogen, using substances found in waste-yeast biomass. Besides, this method is inexpensive, has a high yield, and thus is expected to reduce the hydrogen production cost from the decomposition of water.
