Technology Description:

New England Research is developing a method for environmentally safe self-propagating fractures to stimulate geologic hydrogen. The team will monitor the creation of fracture networks and how fractures can propagate within a rock under a variety of physical or mechanical stimuli. Optimizing the self-propagating fractures can dramatically increase reaction rates in iron-rich host rocks to produce economic amounts of hydrogen.
