Hydrogen-fuelled cars ready to run - soon

Abstract:
Professor Max Lu, the director of the ARC Centre for Functional Nanotechnology, is conducting research into the 'hydrogen economy' of the future, using nanotechnology to develop fuel cells that can convert hydrogen to electricity quickly and without pollution.

Current hydrogen storage systems need to operate under high pressure or high temperature, which makes them bulky and uses up precious energy when it is time to discharge the hydrogen. But Professor Lu's research has developed a promising solid material that can absorb and store higher amounts of hydrogen, which can be easily released when needed, using nanotechnology.

(Ed.'s note: "using nanotechnology" means using nanoscale materials.)
