Technology Description:

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is developing a laboratory reactor that will test many parameters and variables for geologic hydrogen production, such as temperature, pressure, and fluid composition. MIT’s customized reactor would utilize artificial intelligence, allowing for rapid screening of different parameters that can affect stimulated hydrogen. Since one of the largest hurdles in pioneering geologic hydrogen stimulation is the slow reaction rate between rock and water, the team will focus on identifying methods to increase the rates, yields, and user control over the reaction.
