Where can hydrogen be used for and how does this process works, you will read more about the applications below.
Where is hydrogen used for nowadays?
Nowadays, hydrogen-gas is a fuel which is not used very often because the technique neccesary to generate energy out of hydrogen is very expensive.They already use hydrogen at space-travel, here the money is available. At this moment they are running tests with hydrogen-gas in vehicles. For the future, it is important to reduce te costs of this technique, maybe then it is possible to use hydrogen-gas more and more.
Where can hydrogen and the fuel-cell be used for in the future?
There are lots of applications for hydrogen as energy-source, if people really want to use it. The most important application for hydrogen is the car. Cars are very important for this new technique, because a lot of the carbondioxide (CO2) pollution is coming from the emmision of cars. If cars in the future are driving on hydrogen-gas instead of petrol, the emmision will be vapor instead of pollution with CO2. Some car companies are developing the so called 'hybrid'-vehicles. Hybrid-vehicles are cars which are driving on 'water'. The expectation is that these cars are on the road by 2004.
