    Hydrogen from Biomass

    No doubt still some way off commercial reality but a breakthrough may be near.

    Hydrogen can be produced far more simply from algae or bacteria in controlled conditions or from nuclear waste stored in water. In any event, any hydrogen economy is miles away in terms of the required scale. Hydrogen is not exactly the most energy dense molecule either. Highly reactive, explosive even, but that doesn't make it an ideal energy source.

    Heavy water is Deuterium Oxide, with Deuterium in the molecule rather than hydrogen. Deuterium is a non radioactive isotope of hydrogen whereas Tritium is a radioactive isotope of water.
