“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..

Peugeot H2Origin Review

H2O is not just a futurist fire prevention vehicle produced by the creative people at Peugeot. H2O produces electricity and water using fuel cell battery technology. Hidden underneath the playful and dynamic appearance of a fire engine lies a very innovative propulsion method. H2O, built on a Partner Electric base, uses the fuel cell battery as a source of on-board energy and features a major innovation for this technology: the hydrogen is produced in real time, based on the system’s needs, which means it can overcome the problems associated with storing pressurized hydrogen..

Toyota FCHV (2008)

During development, TMC analyzed results and data from various utilization studies by the Japan Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Demonstration Project organized by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, tests conducted by the California Fuel Cell Partnership in the United States and cold-weather tests in Timmins, Canada. TMC also repeatedly carried out basic research to get to the core of technical problems as they arose. Based on the results gained from these studies, the TOYOTA FCHV-adv’s fuel cell system was enhanced to further improve cruising distance and low-temperature starts, which had presented obstacles to widespread fuel cell vehicle use
