Abstract:
Extracting energy from unconventional sources has received significant attention recently due to the world’s ever-growing need for energy and the risk of global warming from the use fossil fuels. In fact, when it comes to the production of hydrogen, a gas that is thought by many to be the perfect alternative energy, current technologies are extremely energy intensive, and the energy used to produce the hydrogen comes from fossil fuel. Solid Oxide Membrane (SOM) electrolyzer is new that is different from existing hydrogen production processes. It is the leading way to a future of clean, easily obtainable energy, and it is doing this using something that is in great surplus all over the planet: garbage. A brief description about the process and the potential impact of this new process will be discussed .
