Hydrogen and Its Future as a Transportation Fuel
Efforts to make hydrogen a usable fuel for automobiles are documented in 43 papers drawn from the Society's technical conferences between 1997 and 2002. The main advantages are seen as the element's abundance on the planet unlike fossil fuels, which are both finite and concentrated in a few places, many of them physically or politically inconvenient and the lack of emissions when it is burned or otherwise consumed. The primary challenge is seen as on-board storage of the gas rather than the rather fundamental problem that it takes more energy to isolate hydrogen than is released when it is recombined.
