    MORE HYDROGEN HYPE

    Note the phrase in the quote at the end: “…within around 10 years.” Somebody ought to do a blog called “More Hydrogen Hype.”

    Hydrogen Breakthrough Could Open The Road To Carbon-Free Cars
    May 23, 2007 (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council via Science Daily)

    WHO
    The UK Sustainable Hydrogen Energy Consortium (UK-SHEC), project Co-ordinator Professor Peter Edwards,University of Oxford; also participating-- University of Birmingham, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire
    H atoms=green, Li atoms=dark grey, N atoms=blue, B atoms=grey inside pyramids (click to enlarge)
    WHAT
    UK-SHEC scientists have developed a “chemisorption” process to make Hydrogen (H) vehicle fuel practically storable in quantities capable of providing a 300-mile trip, the commercially feasible minimum acceptable trip distance.

    WHEN
    Within “around” 10 years.

    WHERE
    UK
    WHY
    - Storing a 300-mile range of H fuel at standard temperature and pressure would require a container the size of a bus while pressurizing or liquefying it would add too much weight. - Chemisorption: H gas atoms absorb into the crystal structure of L (after testing 1000s of soldi state substances). Lithium Hydride (Li4BN3H10) powder stores H at higher density but acceptable weight and volume. H is released as needed to the vehicle’s fuel cell.
    - H fuel is a utopian dream because it creates energy without greenhouse gas (GHG) emission byproducts. A 2004 report ('A Strategic Framework for Hydrogen Energy', published by Etech, Element Energy and Eoin Lees Energy) found Kyoto Protocol limits on CO2 could be met by H vehicles and no other changes.
    great science project
    QUOTES
    -Edwards: "This could be a major step towards the breakthrough that the fuel cell industry and the transport sector have waited for…. "It's due to SUPERGEN's vision of combining many of the leading groups in the UK to tackle this, arguably the biggest challenge for the development of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. This work could make a key contribution to helping fuel cell cars become viable for mass-manufacture within around 10 years."
