Welcome to www.Photohydrogen.com


"I believe that water will one day be employed as fuel, that hydrogen and oxygen which constitute it, used singly or together, will furnish an inexhaustible source of heat and light, of an intensity of which coal is not capable. I believe then that when the deposits of coal are exhausted, we shall heat and warm ourselves with water. Water will be the coal of the future.

Jules Vernes (1870) "L´île mystérieuse


WHAT is photohydrogen?
Hydrogen gas is a potential carrier of energy. For that reason it is used to bring space shuttles into their orbit. Quite recently, even the first hydrogen powered mobile phone was presented. In that case a fuel cell generates electricity from the gases hydrogen and oxygen. Its high energy content makes hydrogen gas an interesting energy carrier. But how should one produce hydrogen? An environmental friendly way is to use solar energy. In that particular case we are talking about photohydrogen!


WHY this web site?
Did you know that hydrogen can be produced using solar energy? Whatever your answer will be, here you will get more information on it! This page is intended to increase your knowledge on hydrogen as an energy carrier in general and on photohydrogen in particular. Since the site is young it starts with links. But hopefully it will grow and grow and maybe you like even to contribute to the pages content. In that case write me an email: rw@biowasserstoff.de



An important part of Photohydrogen.com is the Bioreactor Project. The project sites describe how to setup a model bioreactor for the light-driven production of hydrogen gas with green algae. To the english site.

Ein wichtiger Bestandteil von Photohydrogen.com ist das Bioreaktor Projekt. In diesem Projekt wird der Aufbau eines Model-Bioreaktors zur lichtgetriebenen Produktion von Wasserstoffgas beschrieben. Die deutschen Seiten erscheinen bald! Einen Überblick finden Sie jedoch bereits hier.

Read an article written by Swedish student Ellenor Olssen about the use of a green algae for hydrogen production.
