Scrap aluminum is typically alloyed with other elements such as silicon or magnesium. MIT researchers have discovered that while magnesium reduces hydrogen production in the aluminum-water reaction, silicon multiplies it.

As the world aspires to move away from fossil fuels and minimize carbon emissions, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a new method to generate clean hydrogen fuel using scrap aluminum and water.

Hydrogen fuel cells function by combining hydrogen and oxygen in an electrochemical process to produce electrical energy and water. While an incredible source of ene...
