HYDROGEN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE -PROPERTIES, LIMITATIONS AND MODIFICATIONS

HYDROGEN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE -PROPERTIES, LIMITATIONS AND MODIFICATIONS

HYDROGEN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE Hydrogen can be used as the primary fuel in an internal combustion engine or in a fuel cell. A hydrogen internal combustion engine is similar to that of a gasoline engine, where hydrogen combusts with oxygen in the air and produces expanding hot gases that directly move the physical parts of an engine. The only emissions are water vapour and insignificant […]

HYDROGEN STORAGE – METHODS OF HYDROGEN STORAGE

HYDROGEN STORAGE – METHODS OF HYDROGEN STORAGE

HYDROGEN STORAGE Hydrogen’s energy content by volume is low. This makes  hydrogen storage a challenge because it requires high pressures, low temperatures, or chemical processes to be stored compactly. Overcoming this challenge is important for light-duty vehicles because they often have limited size and weight capacity for fuel storage. The storage capacity for hydrogen in light-duty vehicles should enable a driving range of more than […]

HYDROGEN PRODUCTION – Current Methods to Extract Hydrogen

HYDROGEN PRODUCTION – Current Methods to Extract Hydrogen

HYDROGEN PRODUCTION Because pure hydrogen does not occur naturally on Earth in large quantitie. Hence it takes a substantial amount of energy in industrial hydrogen production. There are different ways to produce it, such as electrolysis and steam-methane reforming process, etc. In electrolysis, electricity is run through water to separate the hydrogen and oxygen atoms. This method can use wind, solar, geothermal, hydro, fossil fuels, […]

Why Only Hydrogen? Hydrogen as a fuel and carrier of energy

Why Only Hydrogen? Hydrogen as a fuel and carrier of energy

Why Only Hydrogen? Historically, carbon has been the most practical carrier of energy. Fossil fuels are packed with  more energy  than pure liquid H2 of the same volume. The carbon atoms have classic storage capabilities and releases even more energy when burned with hydrogen. However, burning carbon base fuel (fossil fuels) and releasing its exhaust contributes to global warming due to the greenhouse effect of […]

Energy Crisis and Environmental Degradation

Energy Crisis and Environmental Degradation

The Energy Crisis and Environmental Degradation Due to the depletion and high rate of consumption of fossil fuels has resulted energy crisis and a steep decline in the reservoirs of these non-renewable sources. It is presently estimated that these non-renewable sources of energy would become  exhausted from the geographical topography if continued to be used as per the present rate. The use of fossil fuels […]
