MSU hydrogen researcher receives $500k grant

EAST LANSING, Mich.(WLNS) – Michigan State University chemist Milton Smith has received a three-year, $500,000 grant to research hydrogen.

Smith is researching the possibility of producing hydrogen from ammonia, which is renewable and composed of hydrogen bonded to nitrogen.

If the two could be separated it would produce a fuel with by-products of only water and harmless nitrogen.

Smith says that the funding will help him develop chemical processes that could change America’s energy future.

The grant is funded by the United State Department of Energy.
