Toyota to build ‘first’ MW-scale hydrogen fuel plant

Toyota plans to build what it claims will be the world’s first MW-scale clean energy and hydrogen generation facility in California. The vehicle manufacturer will use the Tri-Gen site to convert bio-waste into water, electricity and hydrogen to power its operations at the Port of Long Beach. When it comes online in 2020, it is […]

New US standards for cleaner fuels to slash air pollution

The US Government claims its new standards for cleaner fuels and cars will enable the nation to have the “greatest pollution reductions” at the lowest cost. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed “sensible” standards for cars and fuel to significantly cut harmful pollution, prevents thousands of premature deaths and illnesses whilst also enabling efficiency […]

Scientists to turn ‘climate-changing gas to climate-saving fuel’

A team of global scientists is to develop clean fuel from carbon emissions which could be a “game-changing” transformation in the energy industry. The researchers have been granted £1.2 million to develop a new reactor that can produce fuel using sunlight and carbon dioxide. Led by experts at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, they aim […]

University in hydrogen fuel breakthrough

Low-cost clean hydrogen fuel could be a step closer thanks to a discovery by university scientists. Researchers at Edinburgh University have uncovered key details about chemical catalysts that use light to break apart water molecules, splitting them into hydrogen – for use as fuel – and oxygen. The findings will help researchers design efficient photocatalysts […]
