Hydrogen Production Grant Funding

Michigan based business REB Research & Consulting was awarded a Department of Energy (DOE) grant of $2.4 million to lead a development project on hydrogen production. REB will work with several partners including Johnson Matthey, Iowa State University, and the DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory to develop metallic membrane technology for hydrogen separation at the level of hydrogen fuel purity required for proton exchange membrane fuel cells. This research is expected to significantly reduce the cost of palladium membranes while increasing the durability required for the rugged, long-term extraction of hydrogen. Two Michigan universities were also awarded grants for studies to benefit the Hydrogen Fuel Initiative of the Bush administration, though their work will focus on identifying fossil fuel reserves to be tapped for hydrogen production.
