Scientists Researching Fuel Cell Powered by Sugars

Researchers from Brigham Young University have a plan to make different fuel cells than those we actually know, and turn them into something very efficient and reliable. Their goal is to make a cheap fuel cell with a cheap catalyst, which can be even more efficient than a PEM and which can use something easier to make and store than hydrogen and which has no net emissions.

Newly Developed Hydrogen-Based Petrol Substitute Could Power Our Cars In Three Years

A team of British researchers are refining a hydrogen-based petrol substitute due for road-testing next year and available at the pumps in three years. Being composed of hydrogen, the petrol substitute generates zero CO2 emissions and, as the team claims, could be used in all kinds of vehicles.
