Wyoming company wants to convert CBM water to hydrogen

June 14, 2006View for printing

The National Science Foundation has awarded a $100,000 grant to a Wyoming company that wants to determine the profitability of using wind turbines to convert coal-bed methane discharge water into pollution-free hydrogen and oxygen.

Hydrogen already has several industrial uses in Wyoming, including oil refining. Eventually, the hydrogen may be stored in fuel cells to complement intermittent wind energy -- which would increase the value of Wyoming's wind energy by two-thirds, according to Wilson-based Ladd Energy.
