Hydrogen Fuel (Energy Today) by Barbara J Davis Ph.D., Debra Voege

By Barbara J Davis Ph.D., Debra Voege

Simply because hydrogen gasoline offers off water as a byproduct and doesn't emit any carbon dioxide, many of us think it might in the future compete with oil because the significant transportation gas. In Hydrogen gas, readers will notice how this easy point can create fresh power, the way it is utilized in the current for house shuttles and gas cells, and the way it can be utilized in the long run.
