Bound to be innit? Early adopters of any novel tech usually get shafted financially....
Got to be the way forward though. I'd move away from my petrol car tomorrow if I could.
For many people, the use of hydrogen as a fuel calls up images of the Hindenberg exploding into flames. But hydrogen is actually safer than gasoline and had nothing to do with the 1937 disaster. Instead, research has shown that the outer membrane of the dirigible, which was made of a volatile combination of aluminum and iron oxide coating, caught fire from a sparkâ€”possibly from lightning or even static electricity.
Triskele said:Great idea, thats been around for years. I dont think we'll ever see Hydrogen car adorne our streets. What will happen to President Bush's precious oli companies if this kind of technology took off ???
However. I wonder if the brainboxes behind the technology could take it one step further.....
Water is made up of 2 elements, 1 part Oxygen & 2 parts HYDROGEN.

As possible means of generating the hydrogen. I haven't seen any research on this, but in theory it should be quite easy to sort out, with a bit of genetic tinkering. Hmmm... may have to google this one.RedZebra said:I remember hearing about some recent breakthroughs in trying to find / make bacteria that create hydrogen, as part of their normal metabolism. That sounds like a promising way forward... still lots of time til its developped though.
