Catalyst for the carbon-free production of hydrogen gas from ammonia

            Credit: Katsutoshi Nagaoka (Phys.org)—Hydrogen has the potential to provide an alternative, clean energy source, particularly as applied to fuel cell technology. Current fuel sources involve carbon-containing fossil fuels or carbon-containing organic molecules, which result in the production of excess CO2, a greenhouse gas. Several initiatives, including a national initiative […]

GM, Honda team up to develop advanced hydrogen fuel cells

General Motors Co. and Honda Motor Co. took a big step toward putting out vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells by forming a joint venture to produce the systems for both companies’ vehicles. The automakers expect to begin production in 2020 at a GM battery-pack facility south of Detroit, creating about 100 new jobs. They’ll […]
