Hydrogen fuel is desirable because, unlike gasoline, it doesn't release carbon into the atmosphere when burned. 

Crystals of zinc oxide in water can lead to clean hydrogen fuel

A team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the US has made crystals of zinc oxide that, when immersed in water, absorb vibrations and develop areas of strong negative and positive charge, leading to clean hydrogen fuel.

Scientists harvest waste energy to turn water into usable hydrogen fuel

Reports indicate that materials scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have designed a way to harvest small amounts of waste energy and harness them to turn water into usable hydrogen fuel.
