Hydrogen Fuel Anytime And Anywhere

Troops deployed overseas or in other remote areas of the world in need of fuel may be able to create it themselves in the near future. The U.S. Army is looking to convert Jet Propellant 8 (JP-8) into hydrogen fuel for fuel cell applications, on the spot. What is JP-8? JP-8 is a jet fuel that is used by the US military. It is similar to Jet-A, which is used in commercial aviation. JP-8, however, is used for more than just jet fuel. With the Department of Defense’s one-fuel policy,…
