Hydrogen and Fuel Cell News

Self-assembling compounds may make better catalysts for hydrogen fuel cells than platinum, according to new research. Called cofacial cobalt porphyrins, these molecules — which are great at facilitating a chemical reaction that's needed to produce power from hydrogen and oxygen — could be the next big advance in alternative energy. [...]

Launching a transformational product in any market requires a bold vision, and the growing hydrogen transportation revolution is no different. Hydrogen is powering everything from consumer light-duty vehicles, medium- and heavy-duty trucks, buses, forklifts, trains and much more. From Asia to Europe and across North America, we are already seeing [...]

Enzymatic biofuel cells are a potentially clean and renewable technology since they only produce water as the by-product of combustion, but they do suffer from poor electron transfer between the enzyme catalysts and the electrode surface employed in the cells. A new strategy that makes use of both direct electron [...]

As much as a third of the United Kingdom's natural gas could be replaced by hydrogen, according to researchers from Swansea University. The country currently uses natural gas to provide power to homes. Unfortunately, this form of fuel still produces harmful emissions, which the U.K. has been working to cut [...]
