Fuel-cell cars: Stepping on the gas
The Economist
Car-makers' plans to use hydrogen as a fuel looks like it will avoid the dead end that the gas reached in keeping airships aloft. A series of announcements about hydrogen-powered vehicles at recent big car shows in Tokyo and Los Angeles have reinvigorated its claim as a fuel of the future. Hyundai could have a car in production by next year. But the drawbacks to hydrogen still threaten its re-emergence as one of the clean fuels of the future.

New device harnesses sun and sewage to produce hydrogen fuel
The Almagest
A novel device that uses only sunlight and wastewater to produce hydrogen gas could provide a sustainable energy source while improving the efficiency of wastewater treatment. A research team led by Yat Li, associate professor of chemistry at the University of California, Santa Cruz, developed the solar-microbial device and reported their results in a paper published in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Nano. The hybrid device combines a microbial fuel cell (MFC) and a type of solar cell called a photoelectrochemical cell (PEC).

Improved hydrogen-powered heat and electricity for homes
NaonWerk
Some homeowners have already invested in units that produce hydrogen through water electrolysis so as to produce electricity and heat without boilers. Enhanced electrolysis should increase efficiency and decrease costs for greater uptake. Stand-alone units that generate combined heat and power (CHP) for homes, micro-CHPs, are a very efficient, sustainable alternative to the use of a gas boiler.
