Hydrogen cars, the great unknown market

Last January, Hyundai surprised with the global presentation of the new Nexus at the International Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. It is an electric SUV that will hit the market this year to replace the Tucson FCEV (not marketed in Spain) incorporating improvements that allow it to offer better benefits and greater autonomy.

Development of a Simple and Rapid Diagnostic Method for Polymer-Electrolyte Fuel Cells

A simple and fast diagnostic tool has been developed for analyzing polymer-electrolyte fuel-cell degradation. The tool is based on analyzing changes in polarization curves of a cell over its lifetime. The shape of the polarization-change curve and its sensitivity to oxygen concentration are found to be unique for each degradation pathway based on analysis from a detailed 2-D numerical model of the cell.

EU starts five-year project to make fuel-cell gensets

The Everywh2ere project has brought together twelve companies from across Europe, and given them five years and 7 million ($8.6m) to build eight plug-and-play gensets powered by proton exchange membrane (PEM) hydrogen fuel cells, to be used for portable, temporary power in urban environments.

New hydrogen-based electric generators will prevent CO2 emissions

The project, called EVERYWH2ERE, consists of the development of generator sets that use hydrogen instead of petroleum derivatives to generate energy. The Everywh2ere project - within the Horizon 2020 program, with which the European Union promotes innovation projects that ensure the sustainable development and competitiveness of the European economy, will develop electric generators that will produce electricity from hydrogen instead of combustion. fuel

The hydrogen engine

In the world of motors and renewable energies, we are looking to optimize those that do not pollute the atmosphere and that do not depend on fossil fuels. Diesel and gasoline combustion engines have already counted. Electric vehicles are giving. Much to talk about given its accelerated evolution and its fleet increase in recent years. But hydrogen engines are also becoming a trend given their capabilities and performance.

Bikes that move based on hydrogen

The company Pragma Industries, based in Biarritz, is a pioneer in the construction of electric bicycles that run on hydrogen. In 2017 they sold a hundred of these bikes and this year they hope to sell more than 150 units. Having worked for years in the arms industry, Pierre Fort, a natural aeronautical engineer from Dax, decided to turn his career around and create a company that would rely on an inexhaustible and non-polluting energy such as hydrogen.
