Technology Description:

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is developing chemical stimulants to increase the rate of hydrogen production by accelerating the breakdown of minerals. LLNL is targeting short-chain organic acids that can both break down minerals while also recovering other critical minerals. The team is also evaluating whether other transition metals could catalyze geologic hydrogen production.
