FuelCell Energy, an international company dealing with clean, innovative, and economical fuel cell solutions for the supply, recovery, and storage of energy, has just reported the execution of a hydrogen and power off-take agreement with Toyota, highlighting a unique collaboration in which Toyota will buy renewable hydrogen for vehicle fueling produced on-site from a multi-megawatt SureSourceTM fuel cell power plant situated at the Port of Long Beach in California.
Today, wastewater left over from production undertakings is one of the greatest threats to the environment. Agricultural practices, such as pig farming, generate a large quantity of wastewater containing malodorous gases, organic contaminants, and other substances that are detrimental to the water supply.
Similar to a well-maintained greenhouse garden, a specialized type of hydrogen fuel cell – which shows potential as a clean, renewable next-generation power source for vehicles and other applications – requires precise moisture and temperature controls to work well.
Assistant Professor Yang Yang’s research team at the University of Central Florida has developed two potential energy storage technologies in its work with sustainable energy systems.
To see fuel cells in action, a ride on the University of Delaware’s Fuel Cell bus will prove these cells can power vehicles in an eco-friendly way.
Lehigh Researchers are working together with colleagues in China and at three national laboratories in the United States in order to develop a gold-based catalyst that they think could enhance the efficiency and performance of fuel cells that are hydrogen powered.
Alternatives for the immensely expensive platinum and platinum-group metal (PGM) catalysts, presently used in fuel cell electrodes, are being developed by researchers in order to decrease the cost of next-generation polymer electrolyte fuel cells used for vehicles.
A light-activated material capable of chemically converting carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide without producing unwanted byproducts has been developed by scientists.
Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Switzerland have developed a new material that acts as a catalyst within the electrolyser, potentially making such devices cheaper and more efficient in the future.
Christopher J. Kiely, Harold B. Chambers Senior Professor, Materials Science and Engineering at Lehigh University, along with an international team have created a new low-temperature catalyst for making high-purity hydrogen gas while using up carbon monoxide (CO) at the same time.
