H2Expo 2008: First conference on the EU project Zemships

Scientists from eleven countries are exhibiting at the H2Expo, the 7th. nternational conference and exhibition for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, 22 to 23 October 2008 at the CCH-Congress Center Hamburg their research results and projects. n addition to present new market-renowned manufacturers and industrial and commercial applications. On the second day of H2Expo is also the first time a conference on the EU project “Zemships – Zero Emission Ships”. le von Beust, First Mayor of Hamburg, is patron of the H2Expo 2008. The Hanseatic city is in the field of hydrogen and fuel cell technology in Europe a leading position.

International Conference

At the conference discuss scientists, technicians and engineers from home and abroad different aspects of hydrogen use. The symposium and workshops in the current research projects and applications in various countries and discussed. Main topics of the conference this year is mainly due to the technical innovations in each fuel cell types and their most promising fields of application as well as storage and infrastructure. Another focus will be on alternative methods of hydrogen production, such as biomass or waste water.

Parallel Zemships Conference

The first time during the H2Expo 2008, a conference at which the world’s first passenger ship “brennstoffzellengetriebene” presented, which will soon be driving his service record in Hamburg
A consortium of nine companies, the Zemships (Zero Emission Ships, without harmful emissions of CO2) with the support of the EU is developing and now wants the everyday practicality of innovative fuel cell technology to prove. In lectures, the various project partners, the first experience, the use of the ship on the Alster and operation for the newly constructed gas station have been collected. or technical excursions on the Alster can trade visitors from power and benefits of emission “Zemships” convince themselves.

Fuel cells in aircraft

As a forum of this kind in the world is looking for his technology and the issue around the fuel cell has become significantly sensitive, in the f – cell this year in Stuttgart more than 700 guests from around the world are expected ..
For the approximately 66 lectures during the congress ensure high-calibre international speakers from industry, science and politics. The target group of the events are both experts from institutes and research centres as well as producers, suppliers and users of fuel cells.

Apart from the high information content, the Forum serves f – cell also practical experience to be able to exchange as well as new contacts or customers or to maintain. The fair part of the forum covers basically all fuel cell applications, which means both the use of mobile and stationary fuel cells. The sub-group of mobile fuel cells, the so-called portable, portable fuel cells win this year enormously important..

Another highlight of the Forum are available at the state of the German Centre for Air and Space Association (short: DLR) to admire. he Cologne company shows a model of the Airbus 320 research aircraft in which the entire power supply from fuel cells produced. The two-metre model received in professional circles the name D – ATRA, the Advanced Technology Research Aircraft. The realization of such a project is so far unique in the world, in particular as the high weight of fuel cells prepared problems. The Cologne company, however, to innovative membrane hydrogen fuel cells by a new lightweight convincing.

“F-cell”: fuel cell projects internationally

Latest results from research and experience with the application of fuel cells in stationary, mobile and portable field are the themes of the fuel cell forum “f-cell” 2008, 29 and 30 September in Stuttgart. Symposium & Exhibition aimed at producers and users from the hydrogen and fuel cell economy. The largest event of its kind has been an upward trend, the growing importance of the industry reflects. The sponsors of the Peter Sauber Agency Exhibitions and Conferences Ltd., Gerlingen, and the Stuttgart Region Economic Development GmbH, Stuttgart in 2007 with about 700 participants and over 40 exhibition stands a new record was expected back in 2008 with full lecture halls and a lot of international popularity.

News from Canada

“16 percent of 2007 visitors came from abroad. Many from Europe, but also from the USA, Canada, Japan and Korea. his international participation, which in recent years to move up the lecterns, we want to continue to expand, “said agency CEO Peter Sauber, which recently at the Globe 2008, an exhibition with Congress on economic sustainability in Vancouver, its good relations firmed to Canada and exciting units for the “f-cell” could win. The program is already a lecture on the “Integrated Waste Hydrogen Utilization Project” (IWHUP): The company Sacré-Davey tone Innova Inc. and its partners use hydrogen as a waste in the electrochemical industry incurred, not only by two hydrogen filling stations in the immediate vicinity the plants to operate, but participated in the autumn of 2007, a car wash in operation, approved by a 150-kilowatt hydrogen fuel cell with electricity and hot water.

Nissan X-TRAIL FCV

The benchmark for the speed of fuel cell cars. In 11:58 minutes and completely without harmful emissions of hydrogen-powered prototype SUV Nissan X-Trail FCV a measured first round on the north loop of the Nürburgring completed. And despite the rain duration. The approximately 1.3 million-euro research vehicle is a 90 kW/120 hp electric motor on the front wheels driven, its official top speed is 150 km / h. Until the target market launch of the 2015 series model will be the driving performance continue to improve.

His first fuel cell vehicles of the new generation Toyota now provides leasing customers.

His first fuel cell vehicles of the new generation Toyota now provides leasing customers. The FCHV-adv models go first to the Japanese Ministry of Environment. Other government agencies and businesses will follow. The lease rate shall be converted 5 200 per month.
Basis of the zero emission vehicle, the Highlander SUV. For the drive, a 90 kW/122 hp electric motor, by a hydrogen fuel cell with the same power with power. As an interim storage is a nickel-metal hydride batteries are used. Compared with the previous model, the new version of an eight litres to 156 litres larger tank. The range will be up to 830 kilometers.
Also as leasing vehicles are available in Japan, the fuel cell car Honda FCX Clarity and Nissan X-Trail FCV. Of the controlled daily tests the companies hope to draw lessons for the large-scale production. With fuel cell cars for everyone, however, is the earliest towards the end of next decade..
