Cheap, Abundant Hydrogen

Three little words that makes sheiks shake in their boots and oil men cry like little babies: "Cheap, abundant hydrogen."

US researchers have found a new process that makes hydrogen out of waste material and other biomass. It requires electricity -- but it produces 288% more energy in hydrogen than it burns up in electricity.

What's more -- it's financially viable now -- not years down the road.

The breakthrough comes as car companies are experimenting with hydrogen powered or hydrogen fuel cell engines. (AFP)
