Australia’s first hydrogen car comes to market, complete with charging stations in just 5 minutes. The car travels 900 kilometers with the tank full and purifies the air as it moves forward. For the first time, hydrogen fuel cell technology is being applied serialized in a commercial car and, above all, it allows for such important autonomy, with very reduced charging times. This is Hyundai Nexo, a small-cylinder car that beats all car manufacturers in the world and sets a sustainability record, with a charge of 6.27 kilograms of hydrogen that purifies 449,100 liters of air during e The journey (as much as the consumption of breathing of 33 people for a whole day) and it only emits water down your exhaust pipe. This car produces no CO2 or other polluting emissions; just think that an equivalent vehicle, with a traditional combustion engine, emits about 126 kg of CO2 at the same distance. The hydrogen engine thus enters the automobile market and intends to join the electric one among the sustainable mobility solutions the world is adopting. Hyundai thus becomes the first automaker in the world to produce a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle for the market. The car is equipped with a hydrogen fuel cell system that, to generate electricity, passes the gas through a membrane structure where it meets the air taken from the external environment, a process that feeds an electric motor. The excess electricity generated, including energy stored during braking, is stored in a lithium-ion battery. Reposting the next takes 5 min. The first country to put the car on sale was Australia, where the first gas stations were also built. A true vision of a sustainable future.
Well, OK, where are all the techies whinging on about how dangerous this is when compared to leccy?
BTWay, if this hydrogen is stored on board as a gas (most likely since alternatives could be very expensive) and there is a tank puncture -- the gas shoots out immediately. Not like gasoline that can sit around dribbling and pooling until some dingbat drops a match or something. Hydrogen leaves the area.
Oh no, it probably causes global warming!! What shall we do, what shall we do?
This is a far better tech than EV crappola. Ooh, ooh, and free hydrogen gas can be generated at any "filling station" that has leccy and water available. Umm, drat. Can't roll it out here in CaCaLand since we lack both.
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology
Reducing Reliance on Carbon-based Energy Sources
I think hydrogen fuel cells have a lot of potential, once the fueling network is widespread enough to be practical.
