Hydrogen fuel research may benefit from shift in auto industry
Hydrogen Fuel News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Ford, Daimler, and Nissan recently joined forces to make progress in the field of hydrogen fuel cell technology. Each of the companies has an ambitious goal in mind in terms of hydrogen transportation, but each has also been faces with challenges that threaten to derail these goals. The automakers decided to team up in order to overcome some of these challenges and introduce new standards to hydrogen fuel cell technology as a whole. More

Fuel cells are driving electric cars into dead end
Business Report    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Recent moves by Japan's two largest car manufacturers suggest that the electric car, after more than 100 years of development and several brief revivals, still is not ready for prime time, and may never be. In the meantime, the attention of motoring executives in Asia, Europe and North America is beginning to swing toward an unusual but promising new alternate power source: hydrogen. More

The prediction is made in an interim government-industry report looking at the benefits of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles and how the U.K. can be ready for their commercial roll-out. It was produced by the UKH2Mobility project, a consortium of businesses from the automotive, energy, infrastructure and retail sectors working with the government. The report, which is being hailed as a roadmap for the introduction of fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen infrastructure, focuses on six key areas relating to the technology including consumer uptake, model and vehicle development, infrastructure, environmental benefits, fuel production and investment.

United Natural Foods (UNFI) is the largest wholesale distributor of natural, organic and specialty foods and related products in the United States. In addition to 28 distribution centers in the U.S. and Canada, UNFI provides value-added services to its customers, including marketing and promotional materials, merchandising, category management and store support services. During the past three years, the company has examined ways to reduce its energy consumption, which led it to investigate a new power source for its lift trucks — hydrogen fuel cells. More

Reactor makes hydrogen from sunlight
Laboratory Equipment    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
University of Delaware doctoral candidate Erik Koepf and research associate Michael Giuliano spent two months in Switzerland testing a novel solar reactor Koepf developed to produce hydrogen from sunlight. Eight weeks of sophisticated testing at temperatures up to 1,200 C revealed that the reactor's mechanical, electrical and thermal systems worked just as Koepf had predicted. More

Hydrogen from silicon: Just add water
Spectroscopy Now    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Two techniques, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and time-of-flight-secondary-ion-mass-spectrometry (TOF-SIMS), have been used in parallel to show how adding water to silicon can generate hydrogen. The work might take us another step closer to the so-called carbon-free hydrogen economy. Researchers at the University at Buffalo, New York, have demonstrated that silicon nanoparticles can react with water and generate hydrogen spontaneously, and almost instantaneously, without the need to irradiate with ultraviolet light, heat them up, or pass an electric current through the system.

You can't walk into a dealership and buy a car powered by hydrogen fuel cells, but what if you could? Researchers are finding out. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), part of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has acquired four fuel cell vehicles from Toyota. "We're looking at the whole system — from renewable hydrogen production and vehicle fueling equipment to the impact of driving patterns and behavior on vehicle performance," said NREL program manager for fuel cell and hydrogen technologies Keith Wipke.
