Headline

Hydrogen trains lined up for 2021 start in UK

Comment

The use of hydrogen in a fuel cell to drive a propulsion unit is laudable. However, everyone concentrates on the headline that the only waste product is water. this is a massive deceit. The production of Hydrogen gas and the vessels in which to store it in liquid form plus the energy to convert it from gas to liquid are every bit as much energy intensive as a straightforward internal combustion engine. When is our profession going to start being critical around so-called green solutions instead of just accepting lay journalists' claims that this fuel is emission free. No it isn't.
