Moreover, the fuel
that is produced is generally of a higher quality than fuel
from traditional refineries.
cells are cleaner than diesel turbines and other internal combustion engines.
cell technology is said to be developing fast and places new demands on materials.
Cellulosic biofuels are at least as likely as hydrogen to be a future sustainable transportation fuel
of choice," says Yerina Mugiea of NRDC.
With this new innovation, Honda aims to improve fuel
economy for 100cc to 125cc engines by 13% compared to the level of 2005.
However, questions persist about whether the expenditures are part of a dedicated effort to eventually market fuel
cell vehicles, or part of a clever public relations ploy designed to distract the government from imposing more stringent fuel
economy and auto emissions limits.
Frequently, we are very surprised to see people make decisions regardless of the fuel
costs," Tom Skodack, vice president of sales for the Terex Material Handling division of Terex-Fuchs, Southaven, Miss.
In a diesel system, fuel
transfer pumps, injection pumps and fuel
injectors have parts that rely upon lubrication.
cells produce electricity through an electrochemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen.
Yes, Rudolph Diesel also used an 'alternate' fuel
over one hundred years ago.
cell is a type of battery that produces electric current when a catalyst, such as platinum, induces hydrogen (the eponymous "fuel
") to react with oxygen.
What takes time is not so much the fuel
cell itself, but the consumer acceptance and support structure to make hydrogen as familiar a commodity as gasoline is today.
Gasoline, undyed diesel fuel
and undyed kerosene are taxed under Sec.
22 to an automatic fuel
surcharge that will boost motor carrier revenue in times of wildly fluctuating fuel
