American Technion Society researchers have developed a new method for safely and efficiently producing hydrogen using separate cells for the hydrogen and oxygen. The new technology is expected to significantly reduce the cost of producing the hydrogen and shipping it to the customer. The researchers at Technion are developing a photoelectrochemical (PEC) cell that utilizes […]






Georgia Institute of Technology scientists have transformed an internal combustion engine into a modular reforming reactor that could make hydrogen available to power fuel cells wherever there’s a natural gas supply available. Unlike conventional engines that run at thousands of revolutions per minute, the reactor operates at only a few cycles per minute – or […]






A Waseda University research group has developed a hydrogen-carrying polymer, which can be molded as a tangible, safe, and compact plastic sheet. The Tokyo research group’s newly developed a polymer can store hydrogen in a light, compact and flexible sheet, and is safe to touch even when filled with hydrogen gas. Although research and development […]






Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory, in collaboration with several partners, have discovered a less-expensive, more energy-efficient way to produce ‘Alane’, the shorthand version of the chemical aluminum trihydride. Alane is a hydrogen source that has been widely considered to be a technological dead-end for use in automotive vehicles. Here was the […]






Researchers at Stanford and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have developed a tough new catalyst that carries out solar-powered water molecule splitting 100 times faster. This tough new catalyst works better as time goes on and stands up to acid. Because the new catalyst requires less of the rare and costly metal iridium, it could […]
