Can cars run on hydrogen made from plant sugars?Researchers claim that using enzymes to convert biomass to hydrogen could yield significantly more energy than current biomass-to-ethanol efforts.

Mon, Aug 04, 2014Replacing an energy-dense liquid like petroleum with alternative fuels is easier said than done. From the hidden carbon footprint of ethanol to some serious questions about the sustainability of hydrogen fuel cells, many replacement options come with their own significant environmental baggage.Nevertheless, if we are going to reverse the worst impacts of climate change, we’re going to have to find our way to low-carbon fuels fast. One potential path forward lies in the conversion of the sugars found in plants into…
