Hydrogen Production Using Solid Fuels

ByNirmal V. Gnanapragasam, Bale V. Reddy, Marc A. Rosen

Hydrogen does not occur naturally in large quantities or in high concentrations on Earth. It must be produced from other compounds such as water and hydrocarbons (coal, biomass, solid wastes, natural gas, heavy oils, oil sands, etc).
