HYDROGEN FUEL: PROBLEMS AND PROMISES

The U. S. Dept. of Energy, Dept. of Transportation Energy Conservation, Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, New Mexico Energy Institute, and the Deutsche Forschung und Versuchsanstalt fuer Luft und Raumfahrt (DFVLR) are participating in a cooperative effort to study problems involved in fueling automobiles with liquid hydrogen (LH/2) to demonstrate a vehicle of conventional appearance and performance operating on liquid hydrogen, and to demonstrate a liquid hydrogen refueling station operable by personnel with minimal training. A baseline vehicle will result, with which to compare and evaluate future improvements in vehicle performance, liquid hydrogen storage systems, other hydrogen storage methods, and other synthetic fuels.
