Researchers discover gene mutation thought to control energy levels
This study focused on the gene for AMPK (adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase), which controls the amount of energy in our cells by becoming active when fuel stores start to deplete, such as during exercise. View News Article (2007-09-19)

NRL's XFC UAS achieves flight endurance milestone
The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has completed a successful flight test of the fuel cell powered XFC (eXperimental Fuel Cell) unmanned aerial system (UAS). View News Article (2009-08-07)

Gold, copper nanoparticles take center stage in the search for hydrogen production catalysts
X-ray studies at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory are pointing the way to less costly and more efficient catalysts for improving the performance of fuel cells. View News Article (2007-03-29)

MIT creates new material for fuel cells
MIT engineers have improved the power output of one type of fuel cell by more than 50 percent through technology that could help these environmentally friendly energy storage devices find a much broader market, particularly in portable electronics. View News Article (2008-05-16)

Enzyme cocktail converts cellulosic materials, water into hydrogen fuel
Tomorrow's fuel-cell vehicles may be powered by enzymes that consume cellulose from woodchips or grass and exhale hydrogen. View News Article (2009-02-12)

Robotic assembly of fuel cells could hasten hydrogen economy
"The U.S. Department of Energy has suggested that the cost of manufacturing fuel cells is the single biggest obstacle on the road to the hydrogen economy," says Raymond Puffer, co-director of the FMC. View News Article (2005-11-09)

Brush anode and tubular cathode scale up microbial fuel cells
Generating electricity from renewable sources will soon become as easy as putting a brush and a tube in a tub of wastewater. View News Article (2007-03-22)

Boat tail reduces truck fuel consumption by 7.5 percent
An articulated lorry was driven for a period of one year with a boat tail (of varying length) and one year without a boat tail. The improved aerodynamics, depending on the length of the boat tail, resulted in reduced fuel consumption (and emissions!) of up to 7.5 percent. The optimum boat tail length proved to be two metres. View News Article (2009-11-06)

A promising step towards more effective hydrogen storage
An international research team led by Swedish Professor Rajeev Ahuja, Uppsala University, has demonstrated an atomistic mechanism of hydrogen release in magnesium nanoparticles - a potential hydrogen storage material. The findings have been published in the online edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS). View News Article (2008-06-17)

Hydrogen protects nuclear fuel in final storage
When Sweden's spent nuclear fuel is to be permanently stored, it will be protected by three different barriers. Even if all three barriers are damaged, the nuclear fuel will not dissolve into the groundwater, according to a new doctoral dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. View News Article (2009-04-27)
