Investigation of Hydrogen Carriers for Fuel-Cell Based Transportation 2002-01-0097
Hydrogen is the only fuel for fuel-cells. It may be stored pure onboard the vehicle, but this approach is difficult. It is preferable to attach hydrogen to other elements to form a hydrogen carrier, which will be cracked onboard to feed the fuel-cell. This paper explains the concept of hydrogen carriers, details their preferred characteristics, and compares thoroughly the available candidates.
