Sunflower Oil

Sunflower oil could be a solution to the energy crisis. UK scientists have developed a method of making hydrogen from sunflower oil, which could prove to be an eco-friendly source of energy. A team from the University of Leeds said the development could make hydrogen-powered vehicles a more realistic proposition. The researchers envision a small unit inside a car that would pull hydrogen out of the oil to drive a fuel cell. The team has presented details of their research to the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society.
