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 […]

Polymer fuel cells could become cost competitive to power vehicles

October 3rd, 2012 by Carbon Trust

The report, ‘Polymer Fuel Cells – Cost reduction and market potential‘, published by the Carbon Trust, outlines how innovative UK companies are at the forefront of achieving breakthroughs in polymer fuel cells which could address cost, the main barrier to the wide scale deployment of polymer fuel cells. The report, which was launched at the […]

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 […]
