Meet the two SA students working on a R90m quest to produce green cooking and jet fuel

Students at the University of Cape Town (UCT) are at the forefront of South Africa’s research into using green hydrogen to make cleaner fuels for cooking and aviation.

Green hydrogen is made by splitting water into oxygen and hydrogen through a process called electrolysis – whereby an electric current flows through water. The electricity comes from renewable energy sources, like solar PV and wind, which means there are no emissions in its production, and that’s what makes it clean. It is better than other existing methods of producing hydrogen, which releases greenhouse gas emissions – that ultimately cause climate change.
