Producing hydrogen from methanol efficiently using a new catalyst

March 5th, 2013 by Nature

An efficient, low-temperature method for generating hydrogen from methanol is described in Nature. The hydrogen gas produced using this method can be converted into electricity with the help of proton-exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells. Hydrogen produced from renewable resources is a promising potential source of clean energy. Unfortunately, hydrogen gas is difficult to handle and […]

Hydrogen powered forklight trucks coming to market

May 12th, 2011 by SINTEF

The first forklift trucks in Europe to run on fuel cells and hydrogen are on the way to the market. No fewer than 30 demonstration units are to be tested, and Norway is among the countries potentially involved in the trials. Risavika harbour just outside Stavanger is among the candidates for trials of ten of […]

Solid oxide fuel cell micro-combined heat and power plants being developed for the home

December 4th, 2010 by Riso National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy

A solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) produces electricity and heat with a high efficiency, which means that less carbon emissions are produced for each kilowatt generated.  The production of electricity happens with nearly no emissions of nitrogen and sulphur oxides.  SOFC have important attributes for a future climate-friendly energy supply. A SOFC is flat and […]
