Facing green push on farm, fertilizer makers look to sea for growth

Reading Time: 4 minutes Winnipeg/Oslo | Reuters — Two of the world’s biggest fertilizer producers, CF Industries and Yara International, are seeking to cash in on the green energy transition by reconfiguring ammonia plants in the U.S. and Norway to produce clean energy to power ships. The consumption of oil for transportation is one of the top contributors to […] Read more

DynaCERT chief engineer Robert Maier says he’s looking for farmers who have new gen machinery with a high degree of connectivity, so he can run documented trials on HydraGEN performance in an agricultural context.

Hydrogen and oxygen equal cleaner burn

Lower combustion temperatures increase power and decrease nitrogen oxides, creating healthier fuel efficiency

Reading Time: 4 minutes Glacier FarmMedia – A minuscule mist of hydrogen and oxygen sprayed into the air intake of a diesel engine can burn cleaner and lower fuel consumption by 10 to 20 per cent. The technology delivers greater fuel efficiency with less pollution. The unique HydraGEN technology is based on the fact that flame speed of hydrogen […] Read more

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles have been rare in part because of the amount of rare materials needed to manufacture fuel cells.

Breakthrough could make hydrogen vehicles more feasible

Science Notes: Less platinum generates more promise for fuel cells' potential

Reading Time: 2 minutes Only a few of the roughly one billion cars and trucks on global roads run on hydrogen. This could change after a breakthrough achieved by researchers at the University of Copenhagen, a new catalyst that can be used to produce cheaper and far more sustainable hydrogen powered vehicles. Hydrogen has held potential as an alternative […] Read more
