2009 Shanghai Auto Show: Toyota FCHV-adv Concept

Toyota FCHV-adv (Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle-advanced) is a use of  “Toyota FC Stack” high-performance fuel cell hybrid five-seater and with our understanding of high-performance fuel cell R&D is to improve the energy efficiency and reduce carbon dioxide and other gases from air pollution.

Toyota FCHV-adv Concept

Toyota FCHV-adv fuel efficiency by 25%, and in order to improve the performance of life vehicles, Toyota has also developed the high-pressure hydrogen storage 70Mpa, to life after hydrogen charging from the extension of 2 times, and reached about 830 km alarming level. In addition, Toyota is also very cold, especially in low-temperature environment to test the performance of the FCHV-adv, and the Toyota data also showed that even at 30 ℃ environment, FCHV-adv can start and normal running . Cold zone, but also ensure that the vehicles start with the normal traffic.

Developed a mobile power supply vehicles with fuel cell by Iwatani

Iwatani International Corporation, and has developed a 10kW hydrogen fuel to power a mobile vehicle equipped with a solid polymer fuel cell level (presentation). Hydrogen fuel is supplied from outside. Power for the car, developed in conjunction with hydrogen and hydrogen cylinder trailers. 2011 Product of the Year aims. In addition to the work place and tunnels and indoor residential construction and in the evening event, assumed power and the use of a disaster.

Diesel engine (3 tons payload) with a fuel cell in bed. The vehicle is not carrying a hydrogen supply. AC output of the fuel cell is AC-100V, AC-200V and DC-360V in the three types can be used simultaneously. Output 8.5kW output, power efficiency is 45% or more (based on lower heating value). Values when power is 55dB less noise. The trailer is a separately-developed 35MPa hydrogen in a tank of 47L-9 can. Hydrogen trailer is based around a hydrogen capacity and 100Nm3. Hydrogen power car and trailer in a group, and 16 hours of rated output. Connected to hydrogen storage facilities and large-scale hydrogen power from the car, and the long hours of continuous operation. Hydrogen capacity: 100Nm3 over (hydrogen trailer).

Popular appeal of cutting-edge environmental technology

Machine Industry Memorial Foundation (TEPIA) is more of Tokyo Kitaaoyama “TEPIA Plaza” exhibition in the “Technology Pavilion @ TEPIA” renewal and replacement of the contents of the exhibition.
Environmental technology are especially focused on exposure to the renewal. For example, being developed by Daihatsu and demonstration of fuel cells do not require a platinum catalyst, and equipment to oil and oil on the bench for the recycling of polyethylene and polypropylene or “Be-h” (with breast) and on display that. Daihatsu fuel hydrazine as fuel and water pressure, Ni and Co on the electrode (related article). Demonstrations are run on a motor vehicle models showcased Toyako Summit, a 10% concentration of hydrazine added to water to 300ml of an 8 hour drive. The “Life and Communications” in the cluster, which exhibits improved life support robot. And the rehabilitation robot arm developed by the Laboratory for Yano, Gifu University, 2008 and has been released into the care robot.
