Hydrogen generation from grass

Not sure what to post this in, so miscellaneous.

On the subreddit /r/science I saw a post about researchers finding a way to photocatalyse grass with a cheap catalyst to form hydrogen gas.

This link has the most details about the process, sound promising but it problably has a catch.
Would be interesting to do at home, since its easy (So it seems)
Its a shame so little detail is given about the process itself, I am trying to find some more information about this topic.

Thoughts?

Here is the paper.
