The researchers said that the influx of toxic waste has reduced the amount of oxygen present in water and replaced it with hydrogen, which has created high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide gas in the sea. Though poisonous for life, the gas could be used to generate huge amounts of hydrogen which can then be used as a clean fuel.

In underground caves could be stored all the hydrogen generated from the Black Sea which are plentiful in Turkey’s Black Sea region. This discovery could solve the pollution and  and the energy problems with many techniques that include photochemical, thermal and electrochemical processes.
