The key to promoting the hydrogen economy represented by hydrogen vehicles is to produce hydrogen for electricity generation at an affordable price. Hydrogen production methods include capturing by-product hydrogen, reforming fossil fuel, and electrolyzing water. Water electrolysis in particular is an eco-friendly method of producing hydrogen, in which the use of a catalyst is the most important factor in determining the efficiency and price competitiveness. However, water electrolysis devices require a platinum (Pt) catalyst, which exhibits unparalleled performance when it comes to speeding up the hydrogen generation reaction and enhancing long-term durability but is high in cost, making it less competitive compared to other methods price-wise.

There are water electrolysis devices that vary in terms of the electrolyte that dissolves in water and allows current to flow. A device that uses

Hydrogen fuel-cells, giant airbags: Construction is changing

Often involving thousands of people, large infrastructure projects comprise a range of stakeholders, including architects, designers, engineers and construction workers. 

The way these schemes operate is changing, with technology and ideas focused on sustainability and efficiency becoming increasingly important.

One project that’s integrated renewable energy and smart technology into its development is HS2, a major high-speed rail network which, once up and running, plans to cut travel times between London and other major urban centers in England.

In recent weeks, HS2 has released details of several initiatives taking place on its sites. These include the trial of artificial intelligence technology to help the multi-billion dollar infrastructure plan lower carbon emissions and costs, as well as the use of electric construction equipment.

And, at the end

Future MacBook or iPad models could have power for weeks using hydrogen fuel cells

Apple is investigating hydrogen fuel cells in mobile devices as an alternative to present battery charging technology, partly to achieve far longer battery life, but also to be more ecologically sound.

Apple patents are always about technology, or systems to use that technology, and occasionally they are specifically for devices such as the MacBook Pro. The newly granted “Portable computing device for external fuel cell control,” is all of these things, but it’s also unusual in how it sets out both the environmental and the political concerns that have prompted it.

“Our country’s continuing reliance on fossil fuels has forced our government to maintain complicated political and military relationships with unstable governments in the Middle East,” says Apple’s patent, “and has also exposed our coastlines and our citizens to the associated hazards of offshore drilling.”

“These problems have led to an increasing awareness and desire on the part of consumers

Aviation company says it flew aircraft with hydrogen fuel cell

Sept. 26 (UPI) — Aviation company ZeroAvia announced it has made the world’s first flight of a commercial-grade aircraft powered by hydrogen fuel cells.

The company said it retrofitted a Piper M-class six-seat airplane with the fuel cell at its research and development facility in Cranfield, Britain. In a test flight Wednesday, the airplane off, completed a full pattern circuit, landed and taxied without the aid of fossil fuel.

“It’s hard to put into words what this means to our team, but also for everybody interested in zero-emission flight,” Val Miftakhov, CEO of ZeroAvia said in a statement. “While some experimental aircraft have flown using hydrogen fuel cells as a power source, the size of this commercially available aircraft shows that paying passengers could be boarding a truly zero-emission flight very soon.”

ZeroAvia said it will attempt to have the airplane make a 250-mile trip to an airfield in Orkney,
