Vehicles powered by polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are energy-efficient and eco-friendly, but despite increasing public interest in PEMFC-powered transportation, current performance of materials that […]

University of Bern has led an international research team that has succeeded in developing an electrocatalyst for hydrogen fuel cells which, in contrast to the catalysts commonly used today, does not require a carbon carrier and is therefore much more stable. The new process is industrially applicable and can be used to further optimize fuel […]

Washington State University researchers have made a key advance in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) that could make the highly energy-efficient and low-polluting technology a more viable alternative to gasoline combustion engines for powering cars. Led by PhD graduate Qusay Bkour and Professor Su Ha in the Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering […]

University of Washington researchers are at work on a simpler fuel efficient rocket engine that could be cheaper and enable lighter spacecraft. The researchers have developed a mathematical model that describes how rotating detonation engines work. It takes a lot of fuel to launch something into space. Sending NASA’s Space Shuttle into orbit required more […]

University of Delaware (UD) researchers have identified ammonia as a source for engineering fuel cells that can provide a cheap and powerful energy source for fueling cars, trucks and buses with a reduced carbon footprint. The researchers at UD are working on technology to make fuel cells cheaper and more powerful so that fuel cell […]
