- Key step taken for hydrogen-fuelled future
University of Sydney–In a world first, University of Sydney researchers have found evidence of how hydrogen causes embrittlement of steels. When hydrogen moves into steel, it makes the metal become brittle, leading to catastrophic failures. This has been one of the major challenges in moving towards a greener, hydrogen-fuelled future, where steel tanks and pipelines are essential components that must be able to survive in pure hydrogen environments.
HZDR experiment comes up with important steps towards optimizing water electrolysis
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Americans discard as much as 40% of their food, worth about $200 billion a year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A simple new method from Purdue University scientists could help cut down that amount of waste – and provide another renewable source of clean energy.
- Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht develop a new concept
Hydrogen is a clean fuel for vehicles, but storing hydrogen still faces many challenges. Material researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Centre for Materials and Coastal Research (HZG) are developing hydrogen storage systems based on light metal hydrides. They have now published a new concept in the scientific journal Nature Scientific Reports, by which these systems can for the first time be refilled five times faster at a working temperature of less than 180 degrees.
Smog, pollution, climate change. It’s impossible to turn on the news without hearing about the environmental threats faced by modern society.
Breakthrough at the Technion: Researchers have developed an inexpensive, environmentally friendly and safe hydrogen production technology.
Scientists have created a computer simulation program that allows car manufacturers in China to virtually test hydrogen fuel cell engines instead of building expensive prototypes.
Chemists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have discovered a method that could turn plastic waste into valuable chemicals by using sunlight.
In lab experiments, the research team mixed plastics with their catalyst in a solvent, which allows the solution to harness light energy and convert the dissolved plastics into formic acid – a chemical used in fuel cells to produce electricity.
Research from Michigan State University’s Center for Railway Research and Education contributed to a decision to order the first commercial hydrogen-powered train for use in North America.
