HYDROGEN: FUEL AND STORAGE ISSUES

This particular session of NATF – organized by Jean Dhers and VP Alain Bugat – was devoted to the element (and gas) hydrogen. It enabled Fellows to have an update of the state of the art of notable progress made in this field, thanks to research carried out round the world: in space applications, numerous prototypes of fuel cell driven vehicles, prototype service stations to distribute hydrogen fuel in urban areas, etc. France is an active partner-leader in these studies and in the assembly of prototypes, with the CEA (alternate and atomic energy commission), Air Liquide, the CNRS, a number of start-ups, etc. 

Since hydrogen can be produced with emission of GHGs, it can be used in the future as a fuel is a manner similar to NGVs used for all sorts of electric propulsion vehicles found in private, public or freight transports sectors, on land and at sea, with zero GHG or fine particle emissions, now seen as replacing today’s internal combustion engines, fueled by hydro-carbon petroleum products.

HOW TECHNOLOGIES ARE DEEMED ACCEPTABLE (OR NOT) BY SOCIETY
At a time when France is seeking to improve its links with the industrial sectors, NATF gave some thought to how this could be done, during its annual Seminar, November 18, 2014. The NATF Fellows and invited experts are convinced that a renaissance of industry will call for acceptance of technologies; they analyzed, during the seminar workshops, the reasons for technology rejection / and how some familiar objects today have been deemed acceptable (or not). Five technologies were scrutinized: from mobile phones to GMOs and vaccines.
