Will hydrogen-powered cars gradually become mainstream in Europe?
author FuelCellsWorks, July 19, 2018

An EU initiative will deploy hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles in three European capitals as taxis, private-hire and police cars. The move will accelerate their commercialisation and help realise emissions-free transport. The role of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in the transition to a clean, low-carbon energy system is increasingly recognised worldwide. Yet, their mass...

Swedish researchers have discovered a new and efficient way to use electrocatalysis to produce hydrogen gas from water
author FuelCellsWorks, July 19, 2018

Swedish researchers have discovered a new and efficient way to use electrocatalysis to produce hydrogen gas from water. Instead of using expensive and difficult-to-obtain platinum electrodes, the new method uses electrodes with nanotruss structures of iron oxide. The research is led by Professor Ulf Helmersson. The Plasma and Coatings Physics research group at Linköping University...
