Alternative Hydrogen Sources For Portable Fuel Cells

In the current climate of environmental awareness the need for alternative energy sources is undeniable.  In this respect hydrogen gas is a frontrunner as a clean burning fuel, with water being the only by-product.  Coupled with a PEM (polymer electrolyte membrane) fuel cell, hydrogen is a promising alternative to gasoline for automotive applications.  While significant progress has been made, this technology is still in its infancy.  A significant drawback in this technology lies in the storage and transportation of hydrogen within a vehicle.  To this end, our project focuses on the delive
