Revolutionizing Energy: Discover 5 plus 1 Different Methods for Producing Clean and Abundant Hydrogen

Hydrogen is a versatile and clean energy source that can be used for a variety of purposes. One of the main challenges in the widespread adoption of hydrogen as an energy source is the efficient and cost-effective production of hydrogen. In this article, we will briefly showcase 5 different options for producing hydrogen and their advantages and disadvantages, namely through steam methane reforming (SMR), electrolysis, biomass, photoelectrochemical process (PEC), biohydrogenation. And we will reflect on categorization based on environmental impact as well as a new innovative approch, the STORMING project
