New research to run cars on flower power
Will the oilfields of the future be full of sunflowers? They could be if Leeds fuel and energy researchers succeed in producing hydrogen from sunflower oil. Hydrogen is seen as the fuel of the future - able to create electricity with no harmful emissions - to power everything from cars, portable generators to flashlights and even homes and factories. But where is the hydrogen to come from, and... View News Article (2002-06-13)

Brookhaven lab scientists stabilize platinum electrocatalysts for use in fuel cells
Platinum is the most efficient electrocatalyst for accelerating chemical reactions in fuel cells for electric vehicles. In reactions during the stop-and-go driving of an electric car, however, the platinum dissolves, which reduces its efficiency as a catalyst. This is a major impediment for vehicle-application of fuel cells. View News Article (2007-01-15)

MIPT Specialists Study Burning of Kerosene
Researchers from MIPT, Viktor Zhukov, Vladislav Sechenov and Andrei Starikovsky, have published experimental data on the combustion of jet fuel in the journal Fuel. The results of their research are important for simulating processes in jet engines. View News Article (2014-09-05)

Researchers from institutions including Lund University have taken a step closer to producing solar fuel using artificial photosynthesis. View News Article (2015-03-03)

News Alert: Energy for the future - Hydrogen and Fuel Cell industry sets out its blueprint
At its second General Assembly on 17 and 18 March, the European Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology Platform will present its proposals for the medium- and long-term development of hydrogen and fuel cells for carrying and converting energy cleanly. Europe faces the challenge of fluctuating oil prices, concerns about global warming and growth in energy demand. Hydrogen, with fuel cells as... View News Article (2005-03-16)

Oxygen ions for fuel cells get loose at low(er) temperatures
Seeking to understand a new fuel cell material, a research team working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in collaboration with the University of Liverpool, has uncovered a novel structure that moves oxygen ions through the cell at substantially lower temperatures than previously thought possible. View News Article (2008-06-30)

Waste coffee grounds offer new source of biodiesel fuel
Researchers in Nevada are reporting that waste coffee grounds can provide a cheap, abundant, and environmentally friendly source of biodiesel fuel for powering cars and trucks. Their study has been published online in the American Chemical Society's (ACS) Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, a bi-weekly publication. View News Article (2008-12-11)

Ceramic microreactors developed for on-site hydrogen production
Scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have designed and built ceramic microreactors for the on-site reforming of hydrocarbon fuels, such as propane, into hydrogen for use in fuel cells and other portable power sources. View News Article (2006-09-20)

Could hydrogen vehicles take over as the 'green' car of choice?
Now that car makers have demonstrated through hybrid vehicle success that consumers want less-polluting tailpipes, they are shifting even greener.  View News Article (2014-11-20)

Component of asphalt eyed as new fuel source
The pavement material that cars drive on may wind up in their fuel tanks as scientists seek ways of transforming asphaltenes - the main component of asphalt - into an abundant new source of fuel. View News Article (2009-09-24)
