Is hydrogen internal combustion a better idea than fuel cells?

By [email protected] (Bengt Halvorson) Although hydrogen—and hydrogen fuel cells—could still play an important role in future transportation, even many hydrogen advocates will admit that hydrogen internal combustion probably won’t. It certainly wasn’t always this way. About 15 years ago there was great hope in the idea of hydrogen internal combustion—essentially… Read Full Article Here For…

The breakthrough could lead to longer range electric airplanes, among other advances in transportation. Read Full Article Here For more great articles: Clean Technica

Cutting the cost of fuel cells in electric vehicles

The 2019 Toyota Mirai electric vehicle touts zero emissions, thanks to a fuel cell that runs on hydrogen instead of gasoline. But the Mirai has barely left California, partly because today’s fuel cell electrodes are made of super expensive platinum. Read Full Article Here For more great articles: Electric Vehicles Research

Iron-platinum catalyst keeps fuel cells clean, even in cold weather

Batteries are currently outpacing fuel cells in the technological race to power the electric vehicle. Lithium batteries keep getting cheaper, while fuel cells remain hampered by pricey, short-lived platinum catalysts. Researchers suggest that adding a bit more platinum—albeit in a novel form—could help fuel cell cars catch up. Read Full Article Here For more great…
