Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology

When you use water to run your car then in fact you are using the hydrogen fuel cell technology. This technology is latest in the news and it is an attempt by the scientists and engineers to make your vehicle less polluting.

Although eighty years old but the technology is taking waves as it makes the vehicle more environment friendly besides being an alternative to the petrol and diesel, the main fuel on which our car and bikes speed on roads.

The technology uses the fuel cell that has two electrodes and water. As the electricity passes the water molecule is broken down into hydrogen and oxygen. This chemical process is called as electrolysis. The hydrogen gas thus formed is passed to the fuel chamber where it is absorbed and promotes for the more efficient use of the fuel that we are using. Such assembly of electrodes is available in the market in the form of kits. You can fix these kits to your car.

Although biofuel, vegetable fuel are available as an alternative technologies for petrol and diesel but these have their own limitations. It gets costly to develop biodiesel from sugarcane. The source of the diesel is produced in certain climates thus this also act as the limitation. But such restriction is ruled out in the hydrogen fuel technology as the water is freely available and can be electrolyzed to make your car more efficient. The efficiency is increased by 70%-80%. Thus your car uses less of the petrol emits less pollutant and thus become more ecofriendly.

You can also prepare these hydrogen kits in your own garage. Remember your school days when you performed various science experiments in the lab. It's all that exciting and simple. All you have to do is go to the market and purchase all the essential things. Follow the instructions on the instruction manual. If you don't want to experiment then you can directly purchase the assembled kit available in the market.

You can search the internet and you will get all the options, the different designs and their prices. Browse through the catalogue and purchase the kit online sitting comfortably in your living room.
So contribute a little to conserve your planet by using this technology. You will not only make your environment less polluted but also save a lot of money by saving on the petrol.

Make your pocket grow bigger and your environment better to breathe in by using this environment friendly hydrogen fuel cell technology.

Go green!
