CHEREAU has been awarded the Prix des Transport des Terres Générales 2019 Hydrogen Trophies.
This prize was an opportunity for CHEREAU to discover the collaborative project ROAD, the first hydrogen refrigerated semi-trailer. ROAD is a new generation of refrigeration bodies that are more efficient and more environmentally friendly, thanks to various new technologies.
In a study published in Nature on January 31st, researchers at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) report advances in the development of hydrogen fuel cells that could increase its application in vehicles, especially in extreme temperatures like cold winters.
An international collaboration between researchers in Spain and Scotland has resulted in a new approach to improve the catalysts needed to carry out the Hydrogen Evolution Reaction (HER). The reaction, in which water is transformed into hydrogen and oxygen, is a promising alternative to humanity’s dependency on fossil fuels to satisfy energy requirements.
An EPFL researcher has developed a system based on fuel cells to reduce the carbon footprint and energy consumption of cruise ships, which are increasingly popular among vacation goers around the world.
Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) have attracted much attention due to their potential of providing an efficient, fuel flexible, low emission and relatively low cost means of producing electricity. The nation’s first SOFC-based power generation system will be soon installed on UNIST campus.
In the journal Science, Argonne chemists have identified a new catalyst that maximizes the effectiveness of platinum.
Platinum is a precious metal more rare than silver or gold. Renowned in the fuel cell community for its effectiveness in converting hydrogen and oxygen into water and electricity, platinum offers unrivaled activity and stability for electrochemical reactions.
A cheap and effective new catalyst developed by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, can generate hydrogen fuel from water just as efficiently as platinum, currently the best — but also most expensive — water-splitting catalyst out there.
A future powered by carbon-free fuel depends on our ability to harness and store energy from renewable but intermittent sources, such as solar and wind. Now, a new catalyst developed at U of T Engineering gives a boost to a number of clean energy technologies that depend on producing hydrogen from water.
