Future looks brighter for fuel cells
The Globe and Mail
It was about a dozen years ago when Ballard Power Systems Inc. generated excitement around fuel-cell technology with its dream to put one in every car. When the reality soon set in that it would take too much time and money to go to mass market — given that fuel-cell technology was and remains years away from being mainstream — Ballard scrambled to find other immediate uses for its product, considered a clean-energy alternative.

The potential for fuel cell prime power in Japan
Fuel Cell Today
A number of Japanese companies are developing large-scale fuel cell technology capable of generating electricity in the hundreds of kilowatts range and above. Fuji Electric continues to improve its 100 kW phosphoric acid fuel cell system, which it has installed at a broad range of customer sites including factories, museums and waste water treatment facilities. Its system is also sold under license by N2telligence as a source of low oxygen content air, which finds application in industrial fire suppression.

High-performing nanocrystal catalyst helps harness hydrogen as a clean-burning fuel
Azo Nano
The quest to harness hydrogen as the clean-burning fuel of the future demands the perfect catalysts — nanoscale machines that enhance chemical reactions. Scientists must tweak atomic structures to achieve an optimum balance of reactivity, durability, and industrial-scale synthesis. In an emerging catalysis frontier, scientists also seek nanoparticles tolerant to carbon monoxide, a poisoning impurity in hydrogen derived from natural gas. This impure fuel remains largely untapped.
