Scientists have discovered a new method for producing hydrogen gas from water at room temperature, which could be a step toward a clean and renewable energy source. Hydrogen has been heralded as a green energy alternative despite its comparatively low adoption rate. However, this is not the situation today.


WHY HYDROGEN POWDER CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING

Researchers from Australia have discovered a novel method for storing hydrogen… in powder form. The outcome is a true revolution in the transport and storage of this gas.
Currently, the energy transition, especially in the automotive and transportation industries, is mostly dependent on lithium-ion battery technology.


CONVERTING GASOLINE TO HYDROGEN ENGINE

Following the success of hybrid and electric cars, it appears that the time has come for vehicles powered by fuel cells or hydrogen cells, the other kind of sustainable propulsion.
It’s possible to purchase kits on the internet that claim to “reconvert” our gasoline and diesel automobiles into hydrogen vehicles, claiming fuel savings of up to 30%.


SUPER-STRONG MATERIALS FOR HYDROGEN TRANSPORTATION

Hydrogen has the potential to ignite a green revolution in the travel sector since it is a clean, long-term alternative to fossil-fuel vehicles.
However, hydrogen must be kept in tanks that can endure high pressure and low temperatures, which has slowed the development of fuel cell electric cars so far (FCEVs).


EC MAKES EUROPEAN HYDROGEN BANK ANNOUNCEMENT

Best of 2022

In order to invest EUR 3 billion in the development of a potential market for hydrogen, the European Commission intends to establish a new European Hydrogen Bank.
Ursula von der Leyen, head of the EC, made this announcement at her third State of the Union speech.


VOLKSWAGEN UNVEILS NEW HYDROGEN CAR CAPABLE OF TRAVELING 2,000 KM WITH SINGLE TANK

Best of 2022

Volkswagen has submitted a patent application for a new hydrogen fuel cell that, in addition to being more affordable than the ones already in use, will enable cars to go up to 2,000 kilometers between fill-ups. Volkswagen does not want to fall behind the hydrogen train, as evidenced by the patent application for this new fuel cell that it co-created with the German business Kraftwerk Tubes.


OIL COMPANIES INVEST BILLIONS ON GREEN HYDROGEN AS THE FUTURE OF ENERGY

Best of 2022

After years of experimentation, big oil firms are now considering the kind of large-scale investments that would make green hydrogen a significant industry.
They are pursuing a very specific vision of a low-carbon future, which involves multibillion-dollar developments that create massive concentrations of renewable electricity.


SOUND VIBRATIONS TURBOCHARGE GREEN HYDROGEN PRODUCTION

Melbourne-based engineers have increased the production of green hydrogen by 14 times using electrolysis of water. They claim that their creation offers a promising method to access a ready supply of inexpensive hydrogen fuel for use in transportation and other industries, which might significantly lower carbon emissions and aid in the fight against climate change.


HYDROGEN BUS CATCHES FIRE IN THE NETHERLANDS

Best of 2022

A fire broke out in an Arriva transport business depot in Doetinchem, the Netherlands, on Thursday afternoon.
A bus fuelled by hydrogen caught fire. The local fire department stated on Twitter that no one was hurt. The cause of the fire has yet to be identified, and it is currently being investigated.


LOTTE CHEMICAL INVESTS 10B WON IN HYDROGEN AND BATTERIES

Lotte Chemical

By 2030, Lotte Chemical would invest a total of ten trillion won in hydrogen and battery materials, which are critical industries for carbon neutrality and future growth.
The corporation intends to do this by increasing its total revenues to 50 trillion won, including 12 trillion won in environmentally friendly enterprises.
