Australian scientists may have solved one of the biggest problems holding back hydrogen-powered cars

One of the biggest challenges facing the hydrogen fuel industry – its transport and storage – may have been solved by scientists at the CSIRO, paving the way for a fuel export industry from Australia.

With some of the world’s biggest car companies, including Toyota, Hyundai and BMW, betting on hydrogen as a future fuel source, the national science agency has developed membrane technology to refuel cars using ammonia.

Two fuel cell vehicles, a Toyota Mirai and Hyundai Nexo, have been successfully refuelled using ultra-high purity hydrogen produced in Queensland.
