About this book
As worldwide energy needs continue to increase, so do growing economic and environmental concerns of traditional petroleum energy sources. Hydrogen offers a clean, non-petroleum alternative. To combat the current energy crisis, hydrogen has received major interest as an energy carrier, because it can be made from widely available primary energy sources and produces zero or near zero tailpipe emissions.
Focusing on the production, transport, storage, safety, and environmental aspects, this book provides a comprehensive review of the latest information on hydrogen fuel. It presents various production methods, including natural gas, coal, nuclear energy, wind energy, biomass, photobiological processes, solar energy, and electrolysis.
