Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison could soon develop a new technology that will produce hydrogen from solar power and produces water instead of carbon emissions. Materials science and engineering assistant professor Dane Morgan and Ph.D. student Edward (Ted) Holby are working to bring solar powered cars that will produces water instead of carbon emissions.
London Mayor Boris Johnson has announced plans to create UK’s first “Hydrogen Highway”, by building a network of hydrogen filling stations throughout the capital. As part of the scheme, a pilot fleet of around 150 hydrogen cars, five buses and 20 black taxis will be assembled in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics.
A team of Italian researchers have developed a new technique that could be used to make clean fuel from water using nothing other than lasers. ”There is no other chemical agent involved in the process – not solvents, catalysts or radial initiators,” said the researchers Roberto Bini. “This is extremely important because it means that [...]
Researchers at the Ohio University have developed an efficient way of producing hydrogen from urine – a feat that could not only fuel the cars of the future, but could also help clean up municipal wastewater. Using hydrogen to power cars has become an increasingly attractive transportation fuel, as the only emission produced is water [...]
A team of students from Oxford and Cranfield Universities in England have designed a new hydrogen fuel cell-powered car, being to be unveiled next week. Autocar can reveal that the Riversimple Urban Car will have a far smaller fuel cell than in current industry prototypes and thus needs less hydrogen to be stored on board [...]
Researchers have founded that microscopic organisms like microalgae and bacteria are biological factories that are proving to be efficient sources of inexpensive, environmentally friendly biofuels, which would help solve the looming fuel crisis in the 21st century.
MIT professor Dan Nocera have founded a solution to combat the energy crisis. Instead of using wind turbines or expensive solar arrays, Nocera is attempting to power you vehicle and you home with just 5 liters of water. The professor claims that this solution could change our homes into our fuel stations and power plants [...]
Toyota has officialy announced, at the Detroit Auto Show, that will develop a series model which will run on hydrogen. The launch of this model will take place in 2015. The first projects in this direction have started recently.
Because the hydrogen is still produced from fossil fuels, many companies are looking for new alternative hydrogen sources. The researchers have made a new discovery. They have found that the hydrogen could be produced from dough and sewage.
Volkswagen created in collaboration with Shanghai Auto, a vehicle powered by hydrogen fuel cells. The model is a Passat Lingyu and promotes the use of alternative energy in the automotive industry. The model production will start in 2010. Fuel cells which is equipped Passat Lingyu was developed in partnership between Shanghai Auto and Volkswagen, Tongji [...]
