  • A Reaction of carbon monoxide and water to produce hydrogen gas and carbon dyoxide
  • Traditionally this is done by a process where Syngas is pushed over a bed of carbon coals (traditiannly hot coke, but should be able to be done with charcoal) thus the carbon monoxide is changed to hydrogen and co2 reducing the risk of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
    • This product called "water gas" and was often made in Gasworks
  • May be an easier/more efficent way to produce hydrogen from heat sources than using the heat to make electricity and then Electrolysis
