It involves shredding the hemp and burning it at high temperatures, releasing gas from which liquid carbon dioxide, biogas and hydrogen can be extracted.  The system requires 40% less water and electricity than electrolysis of water — currently, the most common technique used to produce green hydrogen — while producing 12 times more hydrogen. The process also produces natural fertilizer and can be adapted to other biomasses such as algae...
