Award Winning Start-Up’s – A FREE incubator series

Scientists at the University of Pretoria may have discovered a source of white hydrogen in Mpumalanga.

It’s early days yet, but a study into the occurrence of natural hydrogen under the HyAfrica project by a consortium of European Union (EU) and African Union (AU) partners, say samples taken in Mpumalanga fall under the white hydrogen category.

The project is tasked with looking for sources of natural hydrogen in Africa and exploring how to use that in stand-alone renewable energy solutions. If they find the naturally occuring hydrogen then they have to figure out if it is exploitable and how to incorporate that into national energy budgets and plans.

The partnership fall under the Long-term Joint EU-AU Research and Innovation Partnership on Renewable Energy (LEAP-RE). The AU partners are in Morocco, Togo, South Africa and Mozambique.
