The key aspect of the project is the obtaining of metal hydrides with the capacity to "store" the hydrogen used in automotive vehicle fuel batteries. View News Article (2004-03-15)

Cellular organelle evolved repeatedly
NWO researchers have discovered that in the course of evolution hydrogenosomes repeatedly evolved from mitochondria. Hydrogenosomes, or 'hydrogen-forming organelles', are cell organelles that produce hydrogen and energy. They serve as an alternative energy supply in organisms that live without oxygen, such as anaerobic fungi and protozoa. The microbiologists believe that hydrogenosomes evolved...
