Why hydrogen will change the future but can not take off in Argentina

Hydrogen has long gained prominence in conferences and scientific publications. The specialists predict a future of greatness in the field of energy and fuels: it is everywhere, it is accessible and it does not pollute. But in our country, over the decades, attempts to achieve sustainable development have always been halfway.

Hidromvil, project to reduce the use of gasoline.

Hidromvil is a project made by young Mexicans that consists of a hydrogen generating instrument that seeks to reduce the emission of polluting gases and reduce the use of gasoline by between 35 and 50 percent, depending on the size of the engine, said Miguel ngel Bentez, One of the engineers of the team that develops this initiative.
Together with his colleagues Juan Carlos Licea Lpez and Alberto Alejandro Gaseo, chemical engineer and automotive mechanic, respectively, they seek to improve their prototype in order to introduce it to the market and begin to test it with diesel, since for now they have only done it with gasoline. They also want it to be used with industrial machinery, such as boilers or other vehicles.

The US Army Has a 'magic dust' that generates energy based on water

Scientists and engineers from the United States Army have made a revolutionary discovery by discovering that an aluminum-based powder produces large amounts of energy when it comes in contact with any liquid containing water. Home
During an experiment, these military investigators perceived that the mixture of water with one of its nanogalvanic materials made from aluminum caused bubbles. When they analyzed the process, they perceived that the liquid was decomposed into its molecules of oxygen and hydrogen.

New Lexus LS Fuel Cell Hydrogen

The new generation of the Lexus LS has already been introduced, although for the moment it has not reached dealers in any market. The range will consist of gasoline engines and hybrids, and even the latter will have sports version F Sport. However, despite the fact that this will be the most complete range in the history of the Lexus flagship, the true novelty of the new LS 2018 has not yet been presented, as the brand is still giving it a way to give us a surprise. We're talking about the new Lexus LS hydrogen.

Liverpool-Manchester Hydrogen Cluster

Emissions from burning and using gas are the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. In principle the use of hydrogen in place of natural gas, offers a potential long-term route to widespread decarbonisation of gas distribution networks.
The Liverpool-Manchester Hydrogen Cluster is a conceptual project to develop a practical and economic framework to introduce hydrogen into the gas network in the Liverpool-Manchester area.

Microbial fuel cell sensors for water quality early warning systems: Fundamentals, signal resolution, optimization and future challenges

An early warning system is important to guarantee human health and ecological safety. Microbial fuel cell (MFC) sensor can achieve a self-sustainable monitoring without additional transducer or power sources. It would not limited by the main bottleneck of other contemporary MFC technologies, i.e., the low current density output, and is believed one of the most promising applications in the niche market of MFC technologies. This review is limited to MFC sensors for water quality early warning systems only, with emphasis on biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and toxicity sensors. A comprehensive summary and discussion on sensor fabrication, operation, data representation, and optimization are provided.

Mexican scientists seek hydrogen from organic waste

A group of scientists belonging to several Mexican institutions is carrying out a project to obtain hydrogen from biomass of vegetable or animal origin, which would have a potential use as an energy source.
The model relates to the gasification of biomass through A new Canadian patent reactor, made by Dr. Hugo de Lasa, collaborator of the method, indicated the leader of the project, Benito Serrano Rosales.
"This reactor, called Riser Simulator, developed at the Chemical Reactor Engineering Center (CREC), serves to conduct experiments in multiple areas of science involving chemical reactions, is the only one in Mexico."
