Hydrogen has long been acclaimed as a fuel of the future since it burns with no carbon emissions.

The fuel known as Gold Hydrogen can be generated by introducing bacteria to used drill holes.

Texas-based biotech company Cemvita Factory spritzed a precisely chosen mixture of bacteria and nutrients down the drill hole.

The bacteria enters the well and starts degrading the remaining crude hydrocarbons present.

The field test was conducted in July & according to chief business officer Charles Nelson, was a "great success."

The company wants to use bacteria to clean oil wells, enabling long-term, reliable hydrogen production at a cost of $1/km
