The analysis opens new possibilities for more efficient and thus more cost-effective fuel cells
Teams from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and University College London (UCL) have visualised the water distribution in a fuel cell in three dimensions and in real time for the first time by evaluating neutron data from the Berlin Experimental Reactor shut down in 2019. The analysis opens new ...
Glucose energy source for medicinal implants and sensors
Glucose is the most important energy source in the human body. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) now want to use the body's sugar as an energy source for medicinal implants. They have developed a glucose fuel cell which ...
Hybrid production system accelerates transfer to industry
Hydrogen is a key element in the energy transition. To ensure that hydrogen can become generally established as an energy source, it must be produced at market prices, in sufficient quantities and in a climate-neutral manner, and used with a high CO2 reduction rate. This requires affordable, ...
Discovery brings replacing hydrogen as a fuel cell feedstock one step closer
Turmeric, a spice found in most kitchens, has an extract that could lead to safer, more efficient fuel cells. Researchers at theClemson Nanomaterials Institute (CNI)and their collaborators from theSri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning (SSSIHL)in India discovered a novel way to combine ...
Fraunhofer ILT inaugurates new research platform
The success of the energy transition is closely linked to continued research into hydrogen technologies. A major goal of Fraunhofer ILT is to make the fuel cell ready for series production. To this end, the Aachen researchers are setting up a hydrogen laboratory on more than 300 square meters of ...
New material prevents inexpensive catalysts from degrading
Engineers at the University of Illinois Chicago are among a collaborative team that has developed a material that could give fuel cell systems a competitive edge over the battery systems that currently power most electric vehicles. In contrast to lithium batteries, fuel cell technology relies on ...
Light makes ions mobile
Lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells and many other devices depend on the high mobility of ions in order to work properly. But there a large number of obstacles to such mobility. A research team led by Jennifer L. M. Rupp of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harry L. Tuller of the ...
“We have achieved what has eluded scientists for decades”
A new sustainable and practical method for producing hydrogen from water has been discovered by a team of researchers at the RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science (CSRS) in Japan led by Ryuhei Nakamura. Unlike current methods, the new method does not require rare metals that are expensive ...
New catalyst extracts hydrogen from hydrogen storage materials easily and efficiently
A new catalyst from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory and collaborators extracts hydrogen from hydrogen storage materials easily and efficiently. The process occurs at mild temperatures and under normal atmospheric conditions, without using metals or additives. The breakthrough ...
“We could utilize two industrial waste products - ones that have historically been difficult to dispose of - and applied them to produce green hydrogen”
Sea pineapples, an edible ascidian, are a delicacy in Japan. The Tohoku region is famed for its sea pineapple production - known as hoya in Japanese. Now, a research group has established a new use for the scores of sea pineapple shells that get discarded every year. Led by professor Hiroshi ...
