Hydrogen Cars Closer to Reality with New Storage System


New Delhi: Hydrogen run cars may soon be a reality for people. The researchers have developed such a system that will make it possible to fill vehicles fuel tank within a few minutes with enough hydrogen to drive 300 miles.

The system uses a fine powder called metal hydride to absorb hydrogen gas. The system's heat exchanger will circulate coolant through tubes and will use fins to remove heat generated as the hydrogen is absorbed by the powder. According to Issam Mudawar, a professor of mechanical engineering who is leading the research the system, overheating stops the absorption of heat successfully.
