World hydrogen industry growth to 2018
Energy Global
According to a recent report by RnRMarketResearch, the world hydrogen industry is to reach 290 billion m3 by 2018. Global consumption of merchant and captive hydrogen is forecast to increase 3.5 per cent/year, driven by string growth in petroleum hydrotreating and hydrocracking refining operations. Merchant supply will expand rapidly as hydrogen consumption in upgraded petroleum refineries exceeds the refineries' available captive resources.

German researchers develop new hydrogen fuel storage tank
Hydrogen Fuel News
Researchers from the German Aerospace Center have made a breakthrough in hydrogen fuel storage. For years, storage has been a problematic issue when it comes to using hydrogen as an energy source. Modern storage methods are somewhat inefficient and consume quite a lot of energy in order to be effective. New storage methods are needed in order for hydrogen to be considered viable, especially in the field of transportation, where the fuel is becoming more popular.

Air Liquide to build new hydrogen fuel stations in Denmark
Hydrogen Fuel News
Air Liquide, one of the world's leading producers of chemical gases, has announced that it will be installing four new hydrogen fuel stations in Denmark. These fuel stations will be part of the Copenhagen Hydrogen Network, which has the backing of the European Commission. Denmark is currently working to promote clean transportation and has served as a test market for some fuel cell vehicles coming from the auto industry.

Fuel cells move closer to powering ground support equipment vehicles
Aviation Pros
A recent demonstration of our newly engineered hydrogen fuel cell beta unit designed to power ground support equipment (GSE) vehicles used to haul luggage and cargo at airports around the world, means we are one step closer to providing a zero-emission power source for these vehicles. This demo is a significant step in Plug Power's strategy to expand into markets adjacent to material handling, where the company's GenDrive fuel cells have overwhelmingly proved their value.

FuelCell Energy receives $4.4 million in federal grants
Value Walk
FuelCell Energy has received a total of $4.4 million in federal grants to develop new technologies. The U.S. Energy Department has granted $3.5 million to the Danbury-based company to work with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the University of Connecticut to develop a fuel cell stack that can convert renewable biogas or natural gas to methanol. Notably, methanol is cheaper to transport and store than gas.

3-D printing cuts fuel cell component costs
Chemistry World
Electrochemical water splitting is a promising strategy to capture and store energy from renewable sources like solar and wind; however the high cost of devices has limited its widespread use. Usually the flow plates, which distribute liquid reagents and gaseous products in fuel cells, are made from graphite, titanium or stainless steel. Lee Cronin and co-workers at the University of Glasgow have found that 3D printed plastic components coated with silver paint are a cheaper and effective alternative.

Novel catalyst with two functions: Hope for more cost-efficient metal-air batteries and fuel cells
Nanowerk
Chemists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum have made a decisive step towards more cost-efficient regenerative fuel cells and rechargeable metal-air batteries. They developed a new type of catalyst on the basis of carbon, which can facilitate two opposite reactions: electrolysis of water and combustion of hydrogen with oxygen.

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles may be the future
The Green Optimistic
With the early successes of electric vehicles (EV) like as the Tesla Model S and Nissan Leaf, it may seem that battery electric vehicles (BEV) have gotten a head start on hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, but will they keep that lead? Between the two vehicle types, it does one good to note that, while both have a battery pack, the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle is more akin to a HEV (hybrid electric vehicle) than a BEV.
