27 new hydrogen stations worldwide in 2012
Fuel Cell Today
In 2012, 27 new hydrogen refueling stations were opened worldwide, bringing the number of hydrogen stations in service to a total of 208 this year. That is the conclusion of the fifth annual assessment by H2stations.org, a site run by Ludwig-Bolkow-Systemtechnik (LBST) and TÜV SÜD. Eight of the new stations are in North America, three in Asia, and Europe has sixteen new stations, five of which are in Germany.

Newly engineered microorganism could create bio-fuels from carbon dioxide
Science World Report
What if we could use the excess carbon dioxide in our atmosphere to create fuel? It could solve the global energy crisis while at the same time ridding us of those pesky greenhouse gases that are causing our climate to change. Researchers at the University of Georgia may have taken a step to accomplishing just that. They've found a way to transform the carbon dioxide trapped in our atmosphere into useful industrial products.

American Honda installs megawatt stationary fuel cell system
Fuel Cell Today
For each megawatt-hour of power the fuel cell system generates, CO2 emissions will be reduced by 18 to 25 per cent. Over a project life of ten years, the system will reduce Honda's carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 16 million pounds. Fuel cells convert fuels — in this case, natural gas — into electricity through an electrochemical process that is much more efficient than combustion, thereby reducing CO2.

Air-powered engine promises no emissions
KSL
Peter Dearman, 61, who lives in the country just outside of London, built a liquid-air powered engine in his vintage Vauxhall Nova. Though it's not the first engine to run on steam, Dearman has made the engine more efficient. Using heat from the atmosphere and liquid air stored in a beer keg, the engine and antifreeze warm the liquid air to boiling, creating a high air pressure that drives the pistons, exhausting cold air.

Ash from refuse could become hydrogen gas
R&D Mag
Every year, millions of tons of environmentally harmful ash is produced worldwide, and is mostly dumped in landfill sites or, in some countries, used as construction material. The ash is what is left when rubbish has been burnt in thermal power stations. A researcher from Lund University in Sweden has now developed a technique to use the ash to produce hydrogen gas. The method is presented in a new thesis.

Hydrogen fuel cell technology highlighted in new Portland Community College course
Hydrogen Fuel News
Oregon's Portland Community College is to begin offering a new course in the field of renewable energy in April of this year. Renewable energy is becoming a very prominent focus in the U.S., but progress toward its adoption has been significantly delayed over the years due to technological problems and concerns regarding cost. Awareness and education are quickly becoming powerful tools that can overcome these problems and help renewable energy establish a stronger presence in the U.S.
