New Catalyst Turns Seawater in Hydrogen for Fuel Cells

A team of researchers at Australia’s University of Wollongong have found a way to separate the “H” from sea water’s H2O, producing a virtually unlimited source of the hydrogen necessary to power the hydrogen fuel cells that many people believe will, ultimately, replace petroleum gasoline.

In the Army Now! Military Developing Ethanol Fuel Cell

Electricity-generating fuel cells that can be fueled by a cheap, abundant, and renewable fuel source seem to be the holy grail of a low-emission, energy-independent future. Up to now, making the hydrogen that’s powered fuel cell cars has been expensive, but the US military may have come up with new way to generate electricity in a fuel cell with a fuel that we’ve been writing an awful lot about, lately: ethanol.
