Building Australias First Hydrogen Refuelling Station

The Andrews Labor Government is providing $1 million (0.85 million euros) to support the transition to a zero-emissions fleet of local government vehicles.
Moreland City Council, in collaboration with hydrogen utility company H2U, has received funding to implement a renewable hydrogen refuelling station.
This initiative is expected to create up to 15 ongoing full-time local jobs and has the potential to generate more than 100 indirect jobs.

Scientists unwrap the beneficial role of oxidation in hydrogen storage

A powdery mix of metal nanocrystals wrapped in single-layer sheets of carbon atoms, developed at the US Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), shows promise for safely storing hydrogen for use with fuel cells in passenger vehicles and other applications. Now, a new study provides insight into the atomic details of this ultrathin coating and how it serves as selective shielding while enhancing the crystals performance in hydrogen storage.

Storing Hydrogen for Fuel-Cell Vehicles in Solid-State Compounds

Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are exploring ways to use an inexpensive and layered superconductor compound to efficiently store hydrogen. They have already discovered the key mechanism used by magnesium diboride (MgB2) to absorb hydrogen and the reaction pathway that converts MgB2 to its highest hydrogen capacity form, magnesium borohydride (Mg(BH4)2). Mg(BH4)2 is a particularly promising hydrogen storage material because of its high hydrogen content and attractive thermodynamics.

A new synthesis route for alternative catalysts of noble metals

Researchers have developed a new synthesis route for alternative catalysts of noble metals for versatile chemical reactions that could help address environmental concerns.
Noble metals such as platinum are useful as catalysts for versatile chemical reactions including fuel cell vehicles and reduction of CO2 emission. However, they are too costly to be used for these purposes.

New hydrocarbon fuel cells with high efficiency and low cost

The commercialization of the natural gas fuel cell has finally come to the fore, thanks to the recent development of electrode materials that maintain long-term stability in hydrocarbon fuels. Advantage of using this material includes that it uses internal transition metal as a further catalyst in a fuel cell operating condition.

Nanomaterial helps store solar energy: efficiently and inexpensively

Field trials show that new catalyst material for electrolysers is reliable.
Efficient storage technologies are necessary if solar and wind energy is to help satisfy increased energy demands. One important approach is storage in the form of hydrogen extracted from water using solar or wind energy. This process takes place in a so-called electrolyser. Thanks to a new material developed by researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI and Empa, these devices are likely to become cheaper and more efficient in the future. The material in question works as a catalyst accelerating the splitting of water molecules: the first step in the production of hydrogen.

Vehicles that enter the electronic market fully

India, France, Britain and Norway want to abandon gasoline and diesel cars in favor of cleaner vehicles. Even in Germany, the country that literally invented the internal combustion car, there are talks between politicians about eliminating them eventually.
None of this means that the rumor of the piston's energy will disappear overnight. Or even in the next decade. The transition to electric cars will take many years and will involve a slow transition. As automakers look towards a future without cars of combustion, plug-in vehicles accounted for a large part of the Frankfurt Motor Show this year.

The fuel cell of hydrogen advances, but very slowly

In the future the mobility will be fundamentally electric, you can hardly argue about that. The question is whether they will have electrochemical batteries or hydrogen fuel cells. This latest technology is lagging behind, at the Frankfurt Motor Show there were only two prototypes.
The list of manufacturers that will offer pure hybrid or electric models - in each model - only increases. In a very short time we have met the commitments of Volvo, Jaguar or Honda to offer more ecological alternatives to their customers. In the opposite direction, with respect to hydrogen we see few compromises.

The Tesla truck will be presented on October 26, and this is the scenario to be found

As usual, Elon Musk has used his Twitter to make a new announcement regarding the news of their companies. Last night the American tycoon has announced that the presentation of the Tesla truck will take place on October 26, which means that it will arrive later than initially planned: September.
When presented, Tesla's first truck will leave the SpaceX factory in Hawthorne to do the first road test directly, and has the difficult task of convincing the world of transport. Thus, from the outset, Musk has described his next creation with the adjective "unreal beast." In case there was not enough hype, you know.
