Hydrogen vehicle

The 2015 Toyota Mirai is one of the first hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to be sold commercially. The Mirai is based on the Toyota
FCV concept car (shown).[1]

A hydrogen vehicle is a vehicle that uses hydrogen
as its onboard fuel for motive power. Hydrogen vehicles include hydrogen fueled space rockets, as well as
automobiles and other transportation vehicles. The power
plants of such vehicles convert the chemical energy of
hydrogen to mechanical energy either by burning hydrogen in an internal combustion engine, or by reacting hydrogen with oxygen in a fuel cell to run electric motors.
Widespread use of hydrogen for fueling transportation is
a key element of a proposed hydrogen economy.[2]

Buses, trains, PHB bicycles, canal boats, cargo bikes,
golf carts, motorcycles, wheelchairs, ships, airplanes,
submarines, and rockets can already run on hydrogen, in
various forms. NASA used hydrogen to launch Space
Shuttles into space. A working toy model car runs on
solar power, using a regenerative fuel cell to store energy
in the form of hydrogen and oxygen gas. It can then convert the fuel back into water to release the solar energy.[8]
Since the advent of hydraulic fracturing the key concern
for environmentalists with hydrogen fuel cell vehicles is
consumer and public policy confusion that could result
adoption of natural gas powered hydrogen vehicles with
heavy hidden emissions to the detriment of environmentally friendly transportation.[7]

Hydrogen fuel does not occur naturally on Earth and thus
is not an energy source; rather it is an energy carrier. As
of 2014, 95% of hydrogen is made from methane. It can
be produced using renewable sources, but that is an expensive process.[3] Integrated wind-to-hydrogen (power
to gas) plants, using electrolysis of water, are exploring technologies to deliver costs low enough, and quantities great enough, to compete with traditional energy

The current land speed record for a hydrogen-powered
vehicle is 286.476 miles per hour (461.038 km/h) set
by Ohio State University's Buckeye Bullet 2, which
achieved a “flying-mile” speed of 280.007 miles per hour
(450.628 km/h) at the Bonneville Salt Flats in August
2008. For production-style vehicles, the current record
for a hydrogen-powered vehicle is 207.297 miles per hour
(333.612 km/h) set by a prototype Ford Fusion Hydrogen 999 Fuel Cell Race Car at Bonneville Salt Flats in
Wendover, Utah in August 2007. It was accompanied by
a large compressed oxygen tank to increase power.[9]

Many companies are working to develop technologies
that might efficiently exploit the potential of hydrogen
energy for use in motor vehicles. As of November 2013
there are demonstration fleets of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles undergoing field testing including the Chevrolet
Equinox Fuel Cell, Honda FCX Clarity, Hyundai ix35
FCEV and Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-Cell.[5] The drawbacks of hydrogen use are high carbon emissions intensity when produced from natural gas, capital cost burden,
low energy content per unit volume, low performance of 1.1 Automobiles

Hydrogen can also be produced from water by electrolysis or by chemical reduction using chemical hydrides or aluminum. Some research has been done into using special crystalline materials to store hydrogen at greater densities and at lower pressures. 95% of hydrogen is produced using natural gas. usable with (at most) minor alterations to existing well developed and relatively efficient diesel engines.2 Storage The challenges facing the use of hydrogen in vehicles include production.S.[72] Current technologies for manufacturing hydrogen use energy in various forms.2 Storage 4 Hydrogen Hydrogen does not come as a pre-existing source of energy like fossil fuels. less than 3 percent of U.[73] Compressed hydrogen storage mark at ambient conditions. “when FCVs are run on hydrogen reformed from natural gas using this process.[76] and Denmark is using wind. For example. would create near-zero net emissions assuming new biomass is grown in place of that converted to hydrogen. Even when the fuel is stored as liquid hydrogen in a cryogenic tank or in a compressed hydrogen storage tank. A suggested benefit of large-scale deployment of hydrogen vehicles is that it could lead to decreased emissions of greenhouse gases and ozone precursors. However the same land could be used to create Biodiesel.[67] Analyses comparing the environmental consequences of hydrogen production and use in fuelcell vehicles to the refining of petroleum and combustion in conventional automobile engines do not agree on whether a net reduction of ozone and greenhouse gases would result. they do not provide significant environmental benefits on a well-to-wheels basis (due to GHG emissions from the natural gas reformation process).

That is because of the inherent inefficiency of the entire hydrogen fueling process. using the steam reforming process.
