Alternative Fuels for Fuel Cell Powered Buses in Comparison to Diesel powered Buses 2000-01-1484
Introducing a new fuel alternative to gasoline is a very complex task. According to their short to mid term economical feasibility selected processes are modeled. Selected emissions and the primary energy demand of the production and the utilization of hydrogen and methanol as fuels for fuel cell powered buses are compared to conventional diesel powered buses. Different production routes for the alternative fuels are considered. Ecological and economical numbers are given and interpreted.
