Comments Off on Combined Power Hydrogen Station

A hydrogen refueling station in Fountain Valley, California is not only providing fuel for vehicles, but is also helping to supply power to an adjacent industrial facility, and it is reported to be the first “tri-generation fuel cell and hydrogen station” in the world . The hydrogen energy station is located next to a wastewater treatment facility, and biogas generated from that facility provides the feedstock for the system. The biogas is converted into hydrgen which is then available for refueling hydrogen vehicles as well as for a hydrogen fuel cell from FuelCell Energy which generates 250 kilowatts of electricity for the wastewater plant. Approximately 25 vehicles per day can be refueled from this station, in addition to the electrical power generated. via: Energy.gov

Comments Off on German Researchers Build Diesel Engine With Few Emissions

Diesel engines hold a lot of promise, especially the ones in use over in Europe. They make more torque than their petrol cousins, usually come equipped with turbochargers, and tend to emit fewer emissions in low-sulfur form. Researchers at a lab in Munich, Germany, have built a turbocharged diesel engine that they hope will emit less than 5 milligrams of soot and 80 milligrams of nitrogen per kilometer without resorting to a catalytic converter.
