Wonder Material Could HELP Harvest
Energy From The Air
CNN article highlights an emerging use of graphene material which is 200 times stronger than steel & a million times thinner than a human hair .. Scientists found that positively charged hydrogen atoms could pass through it with implications for fuel cell efficiency .. "You put a hydrogen-containing gas on one side, apply small electric current and collect pure hydrogen on the other side. This hydrogen can then be burned in a fuel cell." .. [Cliff Note: Emphasis on "apply electric current" - you need energy to create the electric current in the first place, so this development is about increasing fuel cell efficiency not about creating energy out of thin air.]
