The car industry is starting to get behind hydrogen fuel cells to limit fossil fuel emissions.
New research has found cobalt could be a cheaper alternative for platinum in PEM fuel cells, a discovery that could lead to increased usage and reduced dependence on fossil fuels.
A collaborative research team, including Los Alamos National Laboratory, University of Stuttgart (Germany), University of New Mexico, and Sandia National Laboratories, has developed a proton conductor for fuel cells based on polystyrene phosphonic acids that maintain high protonic conductivity up to 200 C without water.
Because of the many environmental problems caused by the use of fossil fuels, many scientists worldwide are focused on finding efficient alternatives.
A new study reveals how bacteria control the chemicals produced from consuming 'food.' The insight could lead to organisms that are more efficient at converting plants into biofuels.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy celebrates the National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day each year on October 8th (since 2015) to highlight hydrogen-based technological progress made.
The Volvo Group and Daimler Truck AG have now a signed binding agreement for a joint venture to develop, produce and commercialize fuel-cell systems for use in heavy-duty trucks as the primary focus, as well as other applications.
Cavotec has won a contract to supply its innovative in-ground fuelling systems to Sabiha Gokcen International Airport, one of two major airports that serve Istanbul, Turkey.
Professor Mohamed Mohamedi along with a team of researchers from the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) has developed a green membraneless fuel cell that utilizes atmospheric oxygen.
Fuel cells are different from secondary batteries that need to be recharged, and are a kind of environmentally-friendly power generation systems that generate electricity directly from electrochemical reactions using oxygen as oxidant and hydrogen as fuel.
