Summary:
A hydrogen economy, in which this one gas provides the source of all energy needs, is often touted as the long-term solution to the environmental and security problems associated with fossil fuels. However, before hydrogen can be used as fuel on a global scale, we must establish cost effective means of producing, storing, and distributing the gas, develop cost efficient technologies for converting hydrogen to  Read more...
