California Supplementing Their Hydrogen Refueling Stations

The California Energy Commission (CEC) is betting its money on the hydrogen trend and by all appearances, it won’t be a waste: codes, standards and tests to make it possible for hydrogen to be commercialized as retail fuel. But most important of all, it will build three more hydrogen refueling stations.

Hyundai Blue2 – Hydrogen Fuel Cell Concept Vehicle Unveiled in Seoul

Going green is a direction every major car maker has to approach at some point. It’s just that for Hyundai it’s more of a “going blue” trend than it is green: its new hydrogen fuel concept vehicle presented on this week’s Seoul auto show is called â€Ã…“Blue2” and it reads “Blue Squared.”

New Polymer Material Can Store Hydrogen More Effectively

A new type of container for hydrogen gas has been developed by a team of Lawrence Berkeley Lab researchers. The inventors say it can store much more hydrogen than older versions, like pressurized tanks or those storing the gas inside some kinds of metallic molecular chains.

NTU Scientists Use Artificial Leaves Technology to Split Water and Generate Hydrogen

A team of researchers at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have recently set up a new laboratory (the first in Asia) that will be used to convert water into hydrogen fuel. As the scientists said, the development of this technology may reduce the cost of using solar power to the same price as using conventional energy sources.

Netherlands' First Public Hydrogen Fueling Station Officially Opened

The gas station also has a small-scale factory for converting the gas into hydrogen, which is stored in compressed form. The hydrogen fuel is fed through a special hose, just like ordinary LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) and then converted in energy by means of fuel cell technology in the cars.

Volvo Tests Petrol-Powered Fuel Cells For Extending EV Range

Volvo has been testing lately their newest innovation in the field of electric cars – an electric car range extender based on a hydrogen fuel cell powered by liquid organic fuels, such as petrol. In collaboration with Powercell Sweden AB, Volvo’s range extender could take the EV for up to 250 kilometers more and at the same time only emit minute carbon dioxide quantities.

Scientists Discover How to Extract Hydrogen From Waste Vegetable Oils

Waste vegetable oils have previously been used to fuel older diesel engines, but until now nobody succeeded to extract the hydrogen in them and to sequester the carbon dioxide with cheap and affordable technologies. Leeds University scientists have broken the ice and discovered an energy efficient method of extracting both hydrogen and carbon dioxide from otherwise disposable vegetable oils.
