Hybrid vs Hydrogen

Hybrid vs Hydrogen

The problem with hybrid is simple, it still uses gasoline.  However, hydrogen cell vehicles do not use gasoline, they are fueled by hydrogen. So the question is why we are not using this technology at the pump. Actually the answer to that is they are. California is equipped with many stations that help fuel Honda’s FCX Clarity. It is a zero emissions hydrogen powered sedan. The hydrogen tank stores the hydrogen, the V Flow cell stack then generates the electricity in which the lithium-ion battery stores the electricity. Then the PDU (power drive unit) governs the electrical flow and the… read more

Scientists turn CO2 into $

Carbon dioxide

A group of South Korean researchers has developed a way to commercially utilize carbon dioxide that may offer a new approach to dealing with climate change. The team from Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) has successfully produced carbonic anhydrase, an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of carbon dioxide and water to bicarbonate and protons that, in turn, could produce substances widely used in industrial products, including plastic, rubber, paint and artificial bones, according to the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs. The research was part of a government-funded project to develop ways to capture and store carbon… read more
