Egg whites — they’re not just (a cholesterol-free) breakfast anymore. A Japanese researcher has found a way to use molecules from a protein-based chemical found in egg whites to generate hydrogen more efficiently, putting scientists a step closer to producing hydrogen from water without using fossils fuels and raising the possibility that hydrogen could become a clean, carbon-free source of energy. Currently, most hydrogen is produced by processes that emit planet-warming greenhouse gases.

“Hydrogen is an extremely environmentally friendly energy, but it is still generated from fossil fuels in industrial processes, and greenhouse gas emissions...
