Certain non-metal

Answer :

Hydrogen – Fuel

Hydrogen is a combustible gas and burns in the presence of air to produce high amounts of energy. Unlike traditional fuel sources (fossil fuels), it does not produce products that pollute the environment. It burns in the presence of oxygen to produce water and releases energy. It is widely used in fuel cells.


2H2 + O2 2H2O + energy


Oxygen – biodegradation


Biodegradation is the process of disintegrating or breaking down of materials like remains of plants and animals by microorganisms like bacteria, fungi etc. This can happen in the presence or absence of oxygen. The process is called aerobic biodegradation, if it occurs in the presence of oxygen.
