Hydrogen Fuel Cell technology for Road Transport Vehicles 

        • A fuel cell is a device that converts chemical energy (energy stored in molecular bonds) into electrical energy.
        • A PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) cell uses hydrogen gas (H2) and oxygen gas (O2) as fuel.
        • The products of the reaction in the cell are water, electricity, and heat.  Since O2 is readily available in the atmosphere, we only need to supply the fuel cell with H2 which can come from an electrolysis process (see Technology page).
        • A fuel cell works by passing hydrogen through the anode of a fuel cell and oxygen through the cathode.
        • At the anode site, the hydrogen molecules are split into electrons and protons.
