Hydrogen from Chocolate Waste – for Fuel?

Jul 24th, 2008 | By webucation | Category: Hydrogen Fuel

Energy issues are currently being faced by almost every country today. One possible answer is hydrogen fuel. But can hydrogen be really used for fuel?

If people want to use hydrogen for fuel, then there is a need to create usable hydrogen and one way to do that is through chocolate production.

Whenever hydrogen fuel is mentioned, techies, scientists, and even politicians seem to have a glassed look. Honestly speaking, hydrogen can be considered as the perfect fuel. If combined with an oxygen molecule, electricity can be produced. Perhaps you’re already aware that hydrogen makes up the largest part of the atmosphere. If it can be used to generate energy, then pollution and greenhouse gases can be reduced. Does that sound great or what?

However, one problem faced by scientists and researchers is that most of the hydrogen found in the atmosphere is not usable. Oftentimes, hydrogen sticks to another element and a very good example is water (H2O). Great power is required whenever hydrogen is separated from another element.

Honda is among the leaders in the auto industry and currently, they are testing hydrogen powered vehicles on the road. In the US, some families are experimenting with such vehicles. According to the test runs, the cars efficiently work but the main problem is powering the cars. In order to give the car power, the families should take their car to a specialized Honda facility. The facility has solar panels and a tank of hydrogen. At the moment, this set up might work but what if millions of cars are already using hydrogen fuel? Problems will surely arise.

At present, solar power is the most efficient way of creating usable hydrogen although there are still other conversion methods. As mentioned earlier, usable hydrogen can also be created through chocolate production. This may sound humorous to some but in the United Kingdom, a number of scientists discovered this fact. In the production of chocolates, there are waste products and these wastes can be used to produce usable hydrogen.

The chocolate waste needs to be treated with a certain bacteria called ‘e coli’. The treatment will in turn produce hydrogen. Further studies are still being conducted with regards to the use of chocolate waste products to create usable hydrogen.

If in the future the process can be proven quite effective, the chocolate factories are bound to play a very important role in producing hydrogen to be used as fuel. This is great news since more and more people are now aware of the great uses of hydrogen fuel. Now, since there are a lot of chocolate factories around the world, it only means that more usable hydrogen can be created. The next step is to teach chocolate factories how to treat the wastes from chocolate production with e coli.

The advanced technology of today has greatly helped in conducting complicated studies especially in hydrogen production. With the joint efforts of private establishments and various governments, the use of hydrogen for fuel will become more popular and affordable.

Now, every family can help in preserving the planet. With a lot of problems surfacing due to excessive pollution and greenhouse gases, the use of hydrogen for fuel might be the best answer and solution. Why not try using hydrogen as well?
