Hydrogen: Push Toward the Generation of Green H2

December 20, 2022

There has been advancement in the use of clean energy sources. There are variations in these renewable sources on a daily and seasonal basis. Therefore, there is a need for energy conservation when wind or sun is not adequate. Hydrogen has been identified as a potential green energy source.

On this special episode of Getting Technetical powered by Technetics, host Tyler Kern chats with Dr. William Mustain, Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of South Carolina, to help shed more light on developments in green H2 research. The two discuss:

  • The various applications of hydrogen, including fuel cells and fuel infrastructure
  • How industry-university partnerships help advance research
  • How advancements in electrolysis research help uncover faster and more cost-effective methods of producing green H2

“The most rewarding aspect of the journey is watching things designed in the laboratory become incorporated into solving real-life problems,” said Dr. Mustain.

Dr. William Mustain is a Professor and researcher in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of South Carolina. He is the Chair of the Electrochemical Society Energy Technology Division and earned his PhD from Illinois Institute of Technology.
