When you think of hydrogen, cars might be the first thing that comes to mind. But last week, non-automotive applications were the focus of the design developed by the grand prize winner of the 2007-2008 Hydrogen Student Design Contest.
In the opening keynote panel of the NHA's 19th Annual Hydrogen Conference, Shannon Baxter Clemmons, Executive Director of the South Carolina Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Alliance (SCHFCA) announced the team from Missouri University of Science & Technology as the winner of the Hydrogen Education Foundation's (HEF) 2007-2008 Hydrogen Student Design Contest.The team was recognized for their unique design that highlighted technologies that are currently available for consumer purchase, including back-up and portable fuel cell power supply, hydrogen fork lifts, and on-site hydrogen production technologies. The awards were presented by this year's Title Sponsor the SCHFCA, represented by Ms. Baxter-Clemmons. Another lead sponsor, U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Program, represented by Deputy Assistant Secretary Dr. Steven Chalk, was also part of the award presentation. Other contest sponsors included Chevron Hydrogen, Natural Resources Canada, the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, and American Wind Power and Hydrogen.
The team from Missouri received an all-expenses paid trip to Sacramento, CA for the NHA Conference to present their design to attendees on opening day. The winning team's presentation followed a panel of distinguished speakers, notably Paul Brubaker, adminstrator of the Department of Transportation's Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) and Dr. Steve Chalk, U.S. Department of Energy. Ms. Baxter-Clemmons, presented the awards to the grand prize winners. "We were very impressed by the students creative and practical design for hydrogen use at the Columbia Airport" said Mrs. Baxter-Clemmons, "We are proud to help support the education of students and expand the public knowledge base about near-term applications of hydrogen."CONTACT:

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.
Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...
Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.
Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...
University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
