Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) has developed a new type of membrane reactor technology that will help commercialise the use of hydrogen fuel cells, according to ABC.

The technology is a modular unit that allows hydrogen to be separated from ammonia at the point of use.

It is cheaper and easier to transport hydrogen as ammonia than as pure hydrogen in liquid or compressed form.

Australia plans to produce hydrogen from CBM, natural gas and electrolysis using renewable energy with the intention of...
