Technology Description:

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is developing methods to understand the chemical mechanisms responsible for stimulating geologic hydrogen at low temperatures. Serpentinization rates are faster at higher temperatures, but the natural environment in future hypothetical geologic hydrogen production sites would have lower temperatures, meaning that reaction rates would not be as economical. The team is leveraging computation and experimental chemistry to determine how catalysts or other chemical approaches affect the formation of geologic hydrogen in low temperature environments.
