SCRA completes new hydrogen fuel production project

Gas-to-hydrogen project at BMW facility reaches completion SCRA, an applied research corporation, has completed a new gas-to-hydrogen project at a BMW facility located in South Carolina. The project received support from the U.S. Department of Energy and it had a focus of finding ways to economically convert landfill gases into usable hydrogen fuel. This type of hydrogen production method is becoming more popular, as it may represent an efficient way to supply the fuel to those that are making use of fuel cell energy systems. New hydrogen production methods could…

New FuelCell Energy project focuses on renewable hydrogen fuel production

British Columbia - Fuel Cell Vehicles

Hydrogen fuel production targeted as main focus of new project FuelCell Energy, a leading developer of hydrogen fuel cells, has announced that it has won a contract to demonstrate the capabilities of a new fuel cell energy system in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The fuel cell system will generate electrical power but will receive the hydrogen gas it uses from a nearby landfill. The gas acquired through the landfill will be purified by Quadrogen Power Systems into high quality hydrogen, which will then be used to generate renewable electrical power.…

Turkey inaugurates first hydrogen fuel station

Hydrogen Fuel Station

First hydrogen fuel station in Turkey finds home in Istanbul Turkey has inaugurated its very first hydrogen fueling station. The station is located in Istanbul and has already been used to refuel a Hyundai ix35 and a hydrogen-powered boat deasigned by students from the Yldiz Teknik Universitesi. The station itself is located at Golden Horn, a historic inlet of the Bosphorus strait. The new hydrogen fuel stations is expected to help boost the country’s hydrogen fuel infrastructure and help serve the needs of consumers that will be driving hydrogen-powered vehicles…

Hydrogen fueled air planes make for cleaner skys

The European Aerospace Group (EADs) has announced their partnership with scientists from the Glasgow University in Scotland to collaborate in the production of solid hydrogen that will be use to fuel planes. Research is being focused on developing a solid state storage system for hydrogen. There has been some difficulty is storing hydrogen, which has made its use less attractive as an alternative fuel. Storing hydrogen as a gas requires massive volumes, and there is a significant risk of combustion given less-than-favorable circumstances. Liquid hydrogen is viable for storage, but…
