Bosch increases its stake in Ceres Power by 90 million in its commitment to the fuel cell
Bosch has announced the increase of its participation in the capital of Ceres Power from 3.9% to about 18%, with an investment of approximately 90 million euros, as part of its commitment to hydrogen fuel, as reported The company in a statement. The increase has been carried out through new Ceres Power shares and the acquisition of others from the company’s shareholders. The agreement established Bosch’s right to appoint a non-executive director on the Ceres Power committee.
This is how the new technology that could transform electric cars works
Lamborghini’s collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to develop a totally new supercapacitor technology for its hybrid supercar power trains could lead to a breakthrough in energy storage for electric battery vehicles (BEV). If technology continues to evolve as expected, it could be an alternative to battery technology and dramatically reduce the charging times of electric cars.
Instant Hydrogen Production for Powering Fuel Cells
Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing and Tsinghua University, Beijing investigate real-time, on-demand hydrogen generation for use in fuel cells, which are a quiet and clean form of energy. They describe their results in the Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy, from AIP Publishing. The researchers used an alloy — a combination of metals — of gallium, indium, tin and bismuth to generate hydrogen.
They have synthesized gold-based electrocatalysts
A chemist from RUDN (Russia) has synthesized an electrocatalyst of gold nanoparticles with organic ligands that can initiate reactions both to obtain hydrogen and to reduce oxygen in the fuel cells. The performance of the products with the new catalyst was double compared to the use of a traditional platinum-based catalyst. The article was published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A.
¿Did you know that…?
Did you know that Tokyo 2020 will feed the Olympic torch with hydrogen to minimize carbon emissions?
Hydrogen will be used for the first time to power the Olympic torch during its trip through Japan, organizers said Monday, as part of Tokyo 2020’s efforts to host environmentally friendly Games. The organizers aim to compensate all carbon emissions generated during the Games and will also take advantage of the Olympic event to raise awareness about environmental problems in Japan.
