Hopefully this type of research will lead to better ways of producing NH3. This will be part of the renewable hydrogen economy.
Natural gas, another filthy fossil fuel con. Nothing green here to be seen.
The correct title should not have bio in it.e.g. Offgas to Ethanol production
Unfortunately natural gas is just another highly polluting fossil fuel which needs to stay in the ground. By all means fuel it with a renewable gas or liquid. Needs a plug and enough battery for the owners daily commute. Nothing green to be seen here at the moment.
Well done, anything that reduces unnecessary chronic illness is to be applauded. The savings to society can be enormous.
I will be interested to see how this technology responds to large animals dashing across the road. Some animals can remain still until the vehicle is almost on top of it then it bounds across your path. This technology would need roads completely sealed from wildlife.
Hydrogen may have some uses if and when it is produced from excess energy and water. Thinking it can be piped like other gases is a dream at the moment. On site production and dispensing is one sensible method as mentioned. Another is to use the excess energy to go further and produce methanol from the H2. That can be piped, stored and transported as we do now with fossil fuels.
Thank you Arnold for some insights into some of the fossil fuel conversion projects in answer to my tongue in cheek question. I do suspect they are planning to locally pollute our air by use of fossil fuels to produce H2 for shipment to Japan. Then again I could be wrong and they are planning to make use of our natural assets and will be producing it from water and renewable energy.....hmmm?
And just where and how do they think this hydrogen is going to be made?
As many more countries move to prevent runaway climate change ,Trump and others who wish to destroy our common habitat for their short term profits will fast become irrelevant. Good one Canada!
While this can't scale up very far it is another small step in reducing our polluting. Good work!
My guess is Nissan saw an opening after dieselgate. Make a car with the fuel costs/ performance of a diesel without the pollution problems inherent. If they got it right it should be a big seller in that market sector. Without a plug it is unfortunately just another fossil fuel vehicle.
A small step, but really, 15% is nothing to crow about. If it was a true flex fuel vehicle that can run on 100% alcohol (many types), petrol or any combination this would be much better. That would allow owners who choose not to use fossil fuels to do so.
This will be good for those not owning a Tesla. While I have severe reservations regarding H2 for light vehicle use, a few scattered about generating on site from renewable energy and water should be allowed to demonstrate what (if anything) they have to offer. Fossil fuels and should not be part of the scheme.
This site is called 'green car reports'. This is not a green car so why report on it?
If their production of H2 was solely from water and electricity onsite I might wish this company well despite severe reservations about using hydrogen for light vehicles. However it is not!
I fail to see where this fossil fuelled contraption is in any way GREEN?
In what way is this a green vehicle? It is a fossil fuel vehicle, nothing green about that!
If they can offer the safety advantages similar to LiFePO4 cells they may be very good for in-house battery storage and many applications where their weight is not an issue.
I would like to see the results of this flow cell combined with SOFC with a liquid fuel such as ethanol. Again, may not be cost competitive with batteries for daily use of cars but if not maybe a clean, non fossil fuel range extender that is reliable.
One would be tempted to ask if these software mods cause no loss of range or power then why was the cheat mode software there in the first place?
This appears on the surface to be a much more viable idea than compressed H2. Well done Nissan!
I would have thought the answers were now patently obvious.... compressed hydrogen gas has no future for car use.
