Toyota FCV rallies to the hydrogen cause as zero car
Auto Blog
It's been two decades since Toyota dominated the World Rally Championship with its Celica Turbo 4WD. But recently, Toyota hit the rally stage in a very different vehicle. That, as you can see, is the Japanese automaker's Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV), which is still in its prototype phase. We're still at least half a year away from seeing the FCV in production trim, but the model has already been pressed into duty as the "zero car" at the Shinshiro Rally, the last round of the Japanese Rally Championship.

New research could save chemical industry $1.4 billion in energy costs
Eco-Business
The global chemical industry could save $1.4 billion a year in electricity costs with a new technology being developed by Singapore researchers that can recycle waste hydrogen. This initiative by researchers from the Nanyang Technological University is one of seven research projects focusing on energy solutions in renewables and micro-grids, which received $15 million in funding from the Singapore government recently.

New European venture will help support hydrogen fuel buses
Hydrogen Fuel News
Ballard Power Systems, a leading developer of hydrogen fuel cells, has partnered with Van Hool, a manufacturer of buses, in order to launch a new joint venture called European Service and Parts Center. The venture will be focused on providing services to buses equipped with fuel cells, with these services being made available in November of this year. The venture will primarily support buses that have been developed by Van Hool.

Toyota bets big on future of fuel cells
Times Colonist
California's ambitious zero-emission vehicle goal is for 1.5 million hydrogen, all electric, and plug-in electric vehicles to be cruising the roads by 2025. Toward that goal, the state is spending $200 million to build 100 hydrogen refuelling stations, most of them clustered in Los Angeles and around the San Francisco Bay Area. There's just one problem: Where are the hydrogen fuel cell cars?

Jet-fueled electricity at room temperature: New fuel cell can run without high heat
Phys.org
University of Utah engineers developed the first room-temperature fuel cell that uses enzymes to help jet fuel produce electricity without needing to ignite the fuel. These new fuel cells can be used to power portable electronics, off-grid power and sensors. A study of the new cells appears online today in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Catalysis.

NovoFuel wins patent for hydrogen fuel production technology
Hydrogen Fuel News
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has awarded a provisional patent to NovoFuel, a company specializing in hydrogen fuel. The patent covers the company's hydrogen production technology. NovoFuel had submitted its application for the patent in 2009, and the patent itself outlines numerous ways in which the company's technology can be used. Effective and efficient hydrogen fuel production is becoming more important, especially in the auto industry, where fuel cell vehicles are becoming more common.

Fuel of the future
Automotive Blog
Zero-emission motoring moves a step closer as U.K. gears up for hydrogen fuel cell cars. With the first mass-produced fuel cell vehicles (FCV) hydrogen fuel about to his the roads and plans for a network of refuelling stations, the U.K. is getting set for the next big thing. FCVs have a similar performance and range to conventional cars, they can refuel in less than three minutes and, crucially, only give off water vapour.

MSU engineering grant seeks to improve fuel-cell technology
Michigan State University
Researchers in the Michigan State University College of Engineering have received a grant of $694,000 from the U.S. Department of Energy, funds that will be used to develop the technology needed to improve solid oxide fuel cells. SOFCs are a promising green energy technology offering high efficiencies in chemical-to-electricity conversion, the ability to both store and produce energy, and a possible path to transition from today's hydrocarbon-based economy to a CO2-neutral economy running on hydrogen or biofuels.
