USE OF HYDROGEN IN AUTOMOTIVE ENGINES

The case of hydrogen as automotive engine fuel is discussed in the context of environment pollution and scarcity of hydrocarbon fuels. The state of development of the air-breathing, hydrogen internal-combustion engine is reviewed. The hydrogen-oxygen high-temperature Rankine cycle power plant for automotive applications is also examined. Various methods of storing hydrogen on automotive vehicles are discussed, and the resulting vehicle weights and ranges are compared. The production, transportation, storage and distribution of hydrogen is briefly considered.
