New Fuels For Cars And Transport
It is well known that using a hydrogen fuelled car rather than one with a standard internal combustion engine could save significantly on the amount of Co2 that is pumped out into the emission each year.
The problem to date is that an expensive catalyst is required to allow the hydrogen fuel cells to function as required, and the biggest problem is that the metal that is required to do this is one of the most expensive of them all: platinum. To all intents and purposes this means that the process is too expensive to ever become economical, or so it seemed.
However new research is suggesting that an enzyme that will act in place of the platinum catalyst could be created synthetically by scientists, removing the large price barrier of the platinum catalyst and thus paving the way for this technology to progress and making hydrogen fuelled cars one step closer to being possible.
