DorMotor recognizes the environmental benefits of hydrogen fuel in meeting the world’s transportation energy needs now and in the future, whether it’s by road, sea or air.
As the lightest element in the periodic table, hydrogen fuel offers the clean-burning needed to meet the world’s net zero goals. For example, when hydrogen fuel is consumed within an electrochemical cell, only water is produced.
Pure hydrogen isn’t often found in our atmosphere. Instead, it’s produced by a range of sources: from natural gas, nuclear power, biomass to renewable power, such as solar and wind.Generating hydrogen is possible, for example, through thermochemical processes that extract hydrogen from organic (eg fossil fuels, biomass) and inorganic (eg water) elements.
Hydrogen can also be generated through electrolysis or solar energy that splits water (H2O) into hydrogen and oxygen.
Biological processes utilizing microorganisms such as bacteria and algae offer yet another way of producing hydrogen.
Importantly, hydrogen usually serves as the energy carrier that allows for the storage, transfer and delivery of energy produced by other sources.
There are many ways of producing high-efficiency hydrogen fuel. Alongside electrolysis and thermal processing (natural gas), there are also solar-driven and biological processes.
