Toyota to release hydrogen-fueled car
The Spokesman Review
Rocket science long dismissed as too impractical and expensive for everyday cars is getting a push into the mainstream by Toyota, the world's top-selling automaker. Buoyed by its success with electric-gasoline hybrid vehicles, Toyota is betting that drivers will embrace hydrogen fuel cells, an even cleaner technology that runs on the energy created by an electrochemical reaction when oxygen in the air combines with hydrogen stored as fuel.

U of A professor's fuel cell project powers through worldwide competition
Edmonton Journal
A University of Alberta professor's innovative fuel cell technology is climbing the ranks in a competition aimed at identifying the world's best ways of transforming carbon dioxide into useful products. Led by professor Thomas Etsell from the department of chemical and materials engineering, the project seeks to continue development of a fuel cell that consumes carbon dioxide (CO2) instead of producing it.

Rutgers Chemists develop technology to produce clean-burning hydrogen fuel
Engineering.com
Rutgers researchers have developed a technology that could overcome a major cost barrier to make clean-burning hydrogen fuel — a fuel that could replace expensive and environmentally harmful fossil fuels. The new technology is a novel catalyst that performs almost as well as cost-prohibitive platinum for so-called electrolysis reactions, which use electric currents to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen.

Hydrogen fuel infrastructure in California is set to see massive growth
Hydrogen Fuel News
California's hydrogen infrastructure is set to get a boost next year, thanks to FirstElement Fuel. The company has plans to open 19 new hydrogen fuel stations in the state and has received funding for this endeavor from both the California Energy Commission and Toyota. Another 9 fuel stations will be opened using funding provided by various grants from the state government. These new fuel stations are expected to help further establish a working hydrogen infrastructure in California.

Study highlights the potential of using solar power to generate hydrogen fuel
Hydrogen Fuel News
A new study from the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis aims to shed some light on the issue of photoelectrochemical hydrogen production. This process involves the use of solar energy to produce hydrogen, which can be used by fuel cells to generate electrical power. Current hydrogen production methods are energy intensive, consuming a significant amount of fossil-fuels that produce harmful emissions.

Platinum-yttrium nanoparticle catalyst may help reduce cost of fuel cells
Azo Nano
Fuel cells are a promising, non-polluting way to power cars, but their platinum catalysts are so expensive that there's no way current technology could be economically scaled up for widespread use. Now scientists at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and the Technical University of Denmark have developed an alternative that would use just one-fifth as much of the pricey metal.

Japan's fuel-cell vehicle pursuit: Is it Obama's 'all of the above' approach?
Green Car Reports
Two Japanese automakers, Toyota and Honda, are putting their weight behind fuel-cell vehicles, rather than battery electric cars, as the alternative-propulsion technology of the future. Time will tell if that's a wise decision but they do at least have one significant supporter — the Japanese government. There is method behind Japan's decision though, and one that doesn't exclude support for battery-electric vehicles either — the country wants to cover all bases.
