Hydrogen

hydrogenHydrogen has been used effectively in a number of internal combustion engine vehicles as pure hydrogen or mixed with natural gas and in a growing number of demonstration fuel cell vehicles. Hydrogen and oxygen from air fed into a proton exchange membrane fuel cell stack produces electricity to power an electric automobile without producing harmful emissions.

The challenges ahead lie in producing hydrogen in a renewable and efficient manner, storing and transporting great quantities of hydrogen, building a hydrogen fueling infrastructure and lowering the high costs of producing fuel cells.

Chicago Area Clean Cities has a demonstration hydrogen fuel cell car that produces its own hydrogen and oxygen using electricity, then runs on that hydrogen and oxygen.
