Fuel Cells & Vehicles

Fuel cells generate power through an electrochemical process, much like a battery. They convert chemical energy to electrical energy by combining hydrogen from fuel with oxygen from the air. Hydrogen fuel can be supplied in two ways - either directly as pure hydrogen gas or through a "fuel reformer" that converts hydrocarbon fuels such as methanol, natural gas, or gasoline into hydrogen-rich gas.

Fuel of the Future - Hydrogen
In this course the student will learn about biomass oils and distillate fuel use opportunities, production, composition, supply and biorefinery methods. The student will learn of the business advantages of using alternate fuels such as biomass fuels to improve the bottom line.  8 PDH

Biomass Oil
This course will review the design and theory of hydrogen based fuel cells. Expanded use of hydrogen as an energy carrier for America could help address concerns about energy security, global climate change, and air quality. Hydrogen can be derived from a variety of domestically available primary sources, including fossil fuels, renewables, and nuclear power. Another key benefit is that the by-products of conversion are generally benign for human health and the environment. 3 PDH

 

Biodiesel

Biodiesel is a renewable fuel produced from agricultural resources such as vegetable oils. In the United States, most biodiesel is made from soybean oil; however canola oil, sunflower oil, recycled cooking oils, and animal fats are also used.

 

 

Developments in U.S. Alternative Fuel Markets

AFVs are any vehicles capable of operating on an alternative fuel such as natural gas, LPG, alcohol, or electricity. AFVs (except electric vehicles) may be configured as either dedicated or non-dedicated vehicles. Dedicated vehicles are designed to run exclusively on one fuel.
