"A society built on green design, sustainable energy and closed loop systems, a civilization afloat on a cloud of efficient, non-toxic, recyclable technology." ~~Alex Nikolai Steffan

The folks at the FSU labs recently announced a successful tech transfer license with Advance Alternative Energy, Inc. (now owned by World Energy Solutions, Inc.) FSU scientists have developed a thin metal oxide film that improves the efficiency of water electrolysis by separating hydrogen and oxygen. By doing this, the efficiency of water electrolysis is estimated to be 99%.

What this could mean is that this technology could help improve the fuel efficiency in combustion engines by adding a way to efficiently generate hydrogen gas. Right now, creating hydrogen is an expensive, energy consuming process. A Hydrogen Fuel Cell pilot and the current inefficiency of generating hydrogen was discussed in this post.
