A new process for storing and generating hydrogen to run fuel cells in vehicles has been developed by chemical engineers at Purdue University. Professor of Chemical Engineering Arvind Varma says the process, given the name hydrothermolysis, uses a powdered chemical called ammonia borane that has one of the highest hydrogen contents of all solid materials. “This is the first process to provide exceptionally high hydrogen-yield values at near the fuel-cell operating temperatures without ...
