Dirt-cheap catalyst may lower fuel costs for H2-powered cars
Hydrogen-powered cars don’t pass carbon into the atmosphere. Unlike gasoline, which does, the combustion of hydrogen with oxygen produces an exhaust of only water. But hydrogen costs more.
Taking on H2 storage challenge
Sandia National Laboratories will lead a new tri-lab consortium to address unsolved scientific challenges in the development of viable solid-state materials for storage of hydrogen onboard vehicles. Better onboard hydrogen storage could lead to more reliable and economic hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
Removing excess nuclear waste from Alaska
At a seismic array site located 60 miles north of the Arctic Circle, 10 radioisotope thermoelectric generators, or RTGs — once used as a power source by the Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC) — awaited relocation to the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS).
