New project aims to improve quality of hydrogen fuel

Hydrogen Fuel - New Project

New research initiative aims to make hydrogen fuel more pure Two major research institutes in Germany are set to launch a new project that will extend their analysis laboratories in order to improve hydrogen fuel quality. Currently, no independent German laboratory has the capacity to determine if the quality of hydrogen produced within the country meets international standards. The new project is being launched by the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Center and the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Wuttemberg. Researchers will work to extend the analysis capabilities of…

Linde and Daimler continue work to expand Germany’s hydrogen fuel infrastructure

Linde, Daimler, and Total open new hydrogen station in Ulm Germany’s hydrogen fuel infrastructure is growing at a steady pace. Several organizations have come together to build new hydrogen stations in the country to prepare for the eventual launch of fuel cell vehicles. These vehicles are equipped with energy systems that consume hydrogen to generate electricity. When compared to conventional batteries, fuel cells are considered to have higher performance and are more efficient. The problem, however, is that lacking infrastructure support has slowed the adoption of fuel cell vehicles. More…
