It was a very funny and nice moment when I watched this spot about how we can produce hydrogen from manure, a very interesting way to take an advantage of the waste produced by animals.

The process consists in some steps we’ll explain briefly here:

  1. Turning the bullsh*it into hydrogen all starts at the digester where is mixed with water and it flows down from the top keeping the oxygen out.
  2. Now the bacteria works breaking down all the organic molecules and the manure creating the bio-gas that pops-up the tire being collected and sent over the purification facility.
  3. Here all the unwanted elements are removed and we end up with a clean renewable natural gas consisting mostly in methane (CH4).
  4. This gas is taken to the Steam Methane Reformer (SMR), the final step in the process.
  5. In the presence of a catalyst water and heat strip the hydrogen atom from methane, the hydrogen which is used to fuel the vehicle.

I hope you understand the basics of the process and ¡Enjoy the video! 🙂
