The first hydrogen fuel exports to Japan plus new technologies to deliver on the hydrogen economy are being touted in a publication released today: Australian University Science, to showcase Australia’s deep research expertise in this multi-billion dollar economy.
Platinum has long been used as a catalyst to enable the oxidation reduction reaction at the center of fuel cell technology. But the metal’s high cost is one factor that has hindered fuel cells from competing with cheaper ways of powering automobiles and homes.
Now researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a new platinum-based catalytic system that is far more durable than traditional commercial systems and has a potentially longer lifespan. The new system could, over the long term, reduce the cost of producing fuel cells.

Atomically Thin Minerals Show Promise as Proton Conducting Membranes for Fuel Cell and Hydrogen TechnologiesSeptember 4, 2019 | 3 min read September 4, 2019 | 3 min read
Researchers at The University of Manchester discovered that atomically- thin micas – the name given to a type of common mineral found in soil – are excellent proton conductors. This surprising result is important for the use of 2D materials in applications such as fuel cells and other hydrogen-related technologies.
- The ceremony to mark the opening of the new research center was held on August 30, 2019
UNIST announced that it held a grand opening ceremony and signing ceremony of its new hydrogen-specialized research center.
Light is used to make nutrients, and oxygen is produced on small green leaves. The leaves, also called green plants, divide the nutrients produced by photosynthesis into tissues to feed the plants, and release oxygen to make all living things alive. Recently, ‘Biomimetic nanoleaf electrocatalyst’, which can produce hydrogen energy, which is an eco-friendly clean energy, has been developed by mimicking the photosynthesis mechanism of natural leaves.
- Speeding up the hydrogen production by the magic topological surface states
The hydrogen economy is considered to be one of the best options for providing renewable energy and, thereby, contributing to mitigating today´s environmental challenges. The energy density of hydrogen is between 120-142 MJ/kg, which is much greater than that of chemical, fossil, and biofuels. More importantly, water is the only byproduct when hydrogen is used to produce electricity.
- Team of UD engineers pushes cost-effective fuel cell technology forward
Fuel cells are pollution-free power sources that convert chemical energy to electricity with high efficiency and zero emissions. Fuel cell cars, trucks, and buses would allow people to travel long distances with convenient refueling and less of a carbon footprint.
Better air through the use of fuel cells
The aim of the new “MultiSchIBZ” research project is to significantly reduce the pollutants and greenhouse gases produced by shipping.
