Excessive consumption of fossil resources (e.g., coal, oil, and natural gas) has caused serious energy crisis and environmental issues. Especially, trillion tons of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere is regarded to have potentially devastating consequences for the sustainable development of our society. Green hydrogen (H2), produced from renewable feedstocks (e.g., biomass, H2O) and clean energy inputs (e.g., solar energy, wind energy), is regarded as a clean, efficient and versatile energy carrier to address energy and environmental issues, owing to its unique merits of high gravimetric energy density, near-zero CO2 emissions property and multipurpose feature. Thus, the development of green H2 production technology has aroused unprecedented attention. So far, various green H2 production technologies have been developed, including photocatalytic, photoelectrochemical, photovoltaic-electrochemical, solar thermochemical, photothermal catalytic, and photobiological technologies. To highlight those recent advances, Frontiers in Chemistry is launching a Research Topic entitled “Green H2 production for carbon neutrality”.
This Research Topic aims to report on the most recent progresses and developments in green H2 generation technology. This Research Topic welcomes Original Research with Communication/Full Paper, Minireview/Review, and Perspective articles in the themes including but not limited to:
• Direct green H2 generation from renewable feedstocks powered by clean energies;
• Design and preparation of novel catalytic materials or devices for green H2 production;
• Investigation of the reaction mechanism of green hydrogen generation.
