Researchers aim to produce renewable hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles

Fuel Cell Vehicles - Research in Lab

Australian researchers launch new project focused on producing hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles Researchers from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization have launched a new $2.5 million project to help develop technology that will provide fuel cell vehicles with the hydrogen they need to operate. The 2-year project aims to produce hydrogen without also generating a large amount of harmful emissions. The project will build upon research already carried out by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, which involved the separating of pure hydrogen from mixed gases. Project…

CSIRO works to develop new membrane technology to help fuel cell vehicles

Fuel Cell Vehicles - Technology and Cars

New technology could make fuel cell vehicles more viable Scientists from Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) are developing a new fuel cell membrane that may be able to make hydrogen production and distribution more viable for fuel cell vehicles. These efforts are part of a two-year project that is focused on producing pure hydrogen through the separation of mixed gases. Notably, the project is looking into converting ammonia into highly pure hydrogen, which can then be stored and used by a fuel cell to generate electrical power.…

New fuel cell membrane could lead to breakthrough for clean vehicles

Researchers develop a new membrane for fuel cells that is inspired by cacti Scientists from South Korea and Australia have developed a new fuel cell membrane whose design is inspired by a type of cactus. The scientists from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in Australia and South Korea’s Hayang University believe that the new membrane will lead to better clean vehicles in the future. The membrane may lead to better efficiency and performance for fuel cell vehicles, which are beginning to grow in popularity throughout the world. Fuel…

Breakthrough in concentrated solar energy made in Australia

Breakthrough from CSIRO may eventually find its way to the United States A breakthrough in concentrated solar power made in Australia may be coming to the United States. Researchers from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) have developed a “supercritical” steam system for concentrated solar power facilities. This system utilized concentrated sunlight to generate super hot, highly pressurized steam. CSIRO is one of the partners of Abengoa, which is a leading clean technology organization with operations in the U.S. This partnership may bring CSIRO’s breakthrough to the U.S.…
