Toward a Hydrogen Economy?

Purdue University has just publicized, in an article reported in ScienceDaily what promises to be a major step toward hydrogen powered cars.

Researchers supported by General Motors “have developed a critical part of a hydrogen storage system for cars that makes it possible to fill up a vehicle’s fuel tank within five minutes with enough hydrogen to drive 300 miles. The system uses a fine powder called metal hydride to absorb hydrogen gas.” The Purdue researchers note significant improvements in removing and controlling heat generated during the filling and absorption process.
