Hydrogen fuel is beginning to take off in Japan
Hydrogen Fuel News
Japanese automakers have become divided on the subject of whether batteries are better than fuel cells or vice versa. Companies like Nissan and Mitsubishi managed to bring battery electrics to he market years ago and found relative success, but companies like Toyota and Honda have been slow to act in the clean transportation space due to their interests in fuel cells. Hydrogen fuel cells are becoming popular because of their ability to power a new generation of clean vehicles.

Ambitious eight-state coalition to accelerate eco car adoption
Ecomento
California and seven other states have laid out plans to put 3.3 million battery-electric and hydrogen fuel-cell cars on the road in the next decade. The coalition, consisting of California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont, currently represents around a quarter of total vehicle sales in the U.S. and will require automakers to significantly increase their output of environmentally friendly offerings.

Research brings 'fuel of the future' closer to reality
Laboratory Equipment
EPFL scientists have created a method for transforming hydrogen gas into a less flammable liquid fuel that can be safely stored and transported. Their success in bringing the "fuel of the future" one step closer to reality has been published in Nature Communications. Hydrogen is often touted as the fuel of the future. But because this gas is highly explosive, it must be stored and transported under pressure in specialized and expensive containers.

Green hydrogen facility opens at Berlin airport, with first refueling of fuel cell vehicle
Renewable Energy Focus
The first fuel cell electric vehicle has been refueled at the 'Green Hydrogen Hub' (H2BER) of the Total multi-energy fueling station at the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport under construction in Germany, using hydrogen produced onsite via electrolysis using wind and solar energy. In addition to refueling fuel cell electric vehicles, the H2BER project also anticipates operation of a combined heat and power plant with regeneratively produced hydrogen, and its supply into the public gas network.

Scientists: Hyundai leapfrogs Honda to become greenest automaker in U.S.
Automotive News
Hyundai Motor, which has championed smaller engines and gasoline-electric hybrids, has dethroned Honda Motor as the greenest automaker in the United States, according to a report released by the Union of Concerned Scientists. The nonprofit scientific research group ranked Hyundai first and Honda second in its sixth evaluation of the environmental performance of the eight top-selling automakers in the United States.

New fuel cell could eliminate waste at biodiesel plants
The Daily Fusion
A new fuel-cell concept, developed by a Michigan State University researcher, will allow biodiesel plants to eliminate the creation of hazardous wastes while removing their dependence on fossil fuel from their production process. The platform, which uses microbes to glean ethanol from glycerol and has the added benefit of cleaning up the wastewater, will allow producers to reincorporate the ethanol and the water into the fuel-making process, said Gemma Reguera, MSU microbiologist and one of the co-authors.

GM takes an aggressive step on clean transportation
Hydrogen Fuel News
Currently, approximately 153,034 electric vehicles from General Motors are on the road. The demand for these vehicles has been modest in the past, but more consumers are becoming interested in clean transportation, especially as battery technology becomes more advanced and efficient. General Motors is not only interested in producing battery electrics, of course, and has plans to introduce fuel cell vehicles at some point in the relatively near future.

Microbial fuel cells could solve the waste management problem in the U.S.
Hydrogen Fuel News
A team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Laboratory for Energy and Microsystems Innovative have been working on a way to use microbial fuel cells to generate power from wastewater. The endeavor is ambitious considering the low energy density of microbial fuel cells, but the Laboratory for Energy and Microsystems Innovation has successfully designed affordable fuel cell batteries that require no membranes in the past.

A fuel cell for the home
R&D Mag
The fuel cell converts chemical energy directly into electrical energy. Still, there hasn't been a market breakthrough for this technology because the systems have been too complex. Now, Fraunhofer and Vaillant have developed a simple new fuel cell device for home use. "One always speaks of a fuel cell system," says Dr. Matthias Jahn from the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Dresden. "A single cell doesn't produce enough voltage to obtain a sufficient electrical power."

Need a new fuel cell? Let's print one using inkjet printing
Nanowerk
Researchers at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) Energy Conversion has transformed an ordinary HP 1000 ink jet printer into a printer able to print efficient energy conversion devices such as Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC). SOFCs have attracted increasing attention over the last two decades due to high energy conversion efficiency, efficiency, fuel flexibility and low environmental impact, but the technology still has some challenges related to cost and durability before gaining entry at commercial markets.
