Hydrogen technologies

Hydrogen technologies

Hydrogen technologies are technologies that relate to the production and use of hydrogen. Hydrogen technologies are applicable for many uses.

Some hydrogen technologies are carbon neutral and could have a role in preventing climate change and a possible future hydrogen economy.

Hydrogen is not in and of itself an energy source, because it is not naturally occurring as a fuel. The potential environmental impact depends primarily on the methods used to generate the hydrogen fuel.


*Anaerobic digestion
*Dark fermentation


*Generation IV reactor
*Hydrogen bomb

Organic chemistry:



*Hydrogen odorant
*Atomic hydrogen welding
*Oxyhydrogen flame

*Standard hydrogen electrode
*Palladium-Hydrogen electrode
*Cathodic protection
