Technology Description:

Texas Tech University is characterizing rock samples from mining sites with diverse lithologies to develop the chemical, biological, and physical means to stimulate geologic hydrogen across different types of iron-containing rocks. Testing will include studying the effects of metal ion catalysts and the effectiveness of biological stimulation methods on increasing the reaction rates of hydrogen production. The team will optimize the chemical, biological, and physical stimulation of hydrogen-generating rocks to maximize geologic hydrogen stimulation.
