Make Hydrogen Happen
BYLINE: Hydrogen Fuel News
Hydrogen cars are appropriate in all urban area, say US university researchers A team of scientists from the University of Houston released a white paper about the potential of H2. The University of Houston recently released a white paper describing high potential for hydrogen cars in urban areas, referring to them as both competitive and friendly to the environment as a gasoline and diesel vehicle alternative.
The white paper was titled “Competitive Pricing of Hydrogen as an Economic Alternative to Gasoline and Diesel for the Houston Transportation Sector”. In it, researchers stated that over 230 million tons of CO2 are emitted by the Texan transportation sector annually. In 2022, there were 5.5 million vehicles registered with the Texas Department of Transportation<www.txdot.gov/> in Houston alone.
As the city also has a number of H2 production<www.hydrogenfuelnews.com/hydrogen-production-seaworthy/8561975/> facilities for industrial applications, H2 is already readily available there. That said, the H2 is not produced using emissions free methods, as it is grey hydrogen, which is made using natural gas without mitigating its carbon emissions. The H2 is used primarily for fertilizer production and petroleum refining.
