Why do people fear hydrogen so much? It's literally safer than gasoline. It may seem that several myths were spread throughout the public (probably by big-oil).

It cost more energy to produce hydrogen then we get by burning it.

Its about efficiency not safety.

No...obviously you've never used hydrogen. Do some welding with it and come back and please let us know...

Suit yourself, let me know how your experiment with an 8000 psi pressure bottle goes.

Also hydrogen embrittlement.

But do tell how 4 lb/cubic foot for a fuel is exciting.

Isn't it produced from natural gas? I would DEFINITELY not want to just burn natural gas. No WAY!

Yes, oil is nice. IIRC it has the highest number of hydrogens in a very dense form. I guess only people that know fracking would understand things like that. It's also very safe, due to it's liquid nature and relatively low vapor pressure.

So yes, gasoline in particular is a really optimal fuel. It's particularly useful in .... gasoline engines ....

Who would have thunk? People that REALLY appreciate hydrogen get it from gasoline. Because the energy is in those hydrogen atoms flying off the molecule they are bonded to.

No shilling. It's 100% proveable, that gasoline is smarter/better/cheaper than hydrogen.

Or electric.

pressurized flammable gasses > liquid flammable gases at atmospheric pressure

The fear is legitimate and science based. There are significant fire risks with Tesla's battery banks as well. You claim to be scientific, but any time anyone presents conflicting opinions or evidence to you, your reaction is to attack and insult. Looks to me like you don't know how to science.

When does my check come?

I see, we all must be paid actors, shills for big oil. However if anyone claims George Soros is doing the same thing, well, that is just a lunatic conspiracy theory!

Why do you start a discussion if you don't want to discuss anything? It's all about you presenting your point and throwing invectives.
Maybe one day when we deplete our oil supply we'll start thinking about hydrogen, but since there are other alternatives (LPG, biodiesel, electric) I don't see why anyone would choose H2.

The discussion was to reduce the propagation of the myth of hydrogen being more dangerous than petro.

Also, once you add in the total cost of the damages of climate change, you quickly see oil is not the cheaper option.

Wow, all those facts... zero rhetoric. Clearly based on your confidence alone we must trust, even though you present zero facts you must know all the right answers.

Neither of these assertions will survive three minutes in honest debate.

Isn't the fear of hydrogen that it has no added odorant, so people are in fear that when you have a hydrogen leak you can't detect it and it blows up?

Id rather have hydrogen than butane fuelled engines which are poplar here.. I think we are safer at storing these types of gases these days, how many hand lighters you had blow up in your pocket? petrol tanks are thin 2mm plastic tanks, whist hydrogen and butane gas tanks in cars.. are thick steel drums which are deemed safe.. some car manufactures in Europe fit LPG tanks to cars (not retrofitted) so they must be thinking its not that unsafe.. any combustable fuel is risky..

Let me ask this then of the nay sayers.. would you feel safer with LPG tank or a Hydrogen tank fitted in a car.. if you had no other choice?

It does not matter how you feel. It matters what the actual facts are about safe use of these fuels. If you don't know the facts or don't care to look them up, forget it.

LPG has a long history of use with internal combustion engines, all the materials and methods are well proven, in spite of the 3000 psi issues.

Statistically planes are the most safe form of transport but when they screw up everybody typically dies..

I guess you are the kind of guy who travels from NYC to TOKYO by boat...  Roll Eyes

I've looked up the facts about LPG I was planning to buy a car from a manufacturer which fitted LPG as standard.. The last thing manufacturers want is more law cases on their hands. I pretty much think if the manufacturers have decided to fit LPG or Hydrogen they have to a high percentage mitigated all the typical risks.

Are you suggesting that because someone offers hydrogen car for sale it must be safe?

The argument of the OP was that "it was safer than gasoline."

LPG is a 3000 psi product, hydrogen tanks must be 2-3 x that and then they hold at the most 4 lb/cubic foot. The tank must be much bigger. There are serious impracticalities with hydrogen as a fuel. There are issues with LPG also, but not to such an extreme.

Hydrogen will go right through tanks, and the phenomena known as "hydrogen embrittlement" makes fittings unsafe over time.

He is right. It is very simple. Pressurized fuel is more dangerous than liquid fuel by its very nature. It may be managed to an "acceptable" level of risk, but one is always going to be less safe than the other.

I am not saying LPG is not a viable alternative, but it is a valid point that it is inherently more dangerous based on some simple mechanisms. Pressurized gas, if there is any puncture will evacuate nearly all of the fuel in the container, presumably resulting in a flame plume. Depending on the rate of escape, tank orientation, fuel levels, etc it could easily erupt resulting in aerosolization of the fuel mixture with the oxygen in the atmosphere. This is an EXTREMELY destructive effect. It does not always happen, no, but the chances are never zero.

Now lets look at liquid gas fuel. Most of these fuel tanks are not pressurized, and have special bladders to prevent punctures and leaks. If they are leaking the fuel will only empty to the level of the puncture at a generally slower rate. Most liquid fuels also have the added safety benefit that the liquid itself is very difficult to ignite. It requires it to first vaporize and get a proper fuel air mixture, then have a spark be introduced.

So again, I am not saying we cant use these alternative fuels, but lets argue facts please. Pressurized fuels will be inherently be more dangerous to use in vehicles just based on simple physics.

Hydrogen will go right through tanks, and the phenomena known as "hydrogen embrittlement" makes fittings unsafe over time.

Jewett, R.P. (1973). Hydrogen Environment Embrittlement of Metals. NASA CR-2163.

https://books.google.lv/books?id=K7agHFmzfbAC&pg=PA150&lpg=PA150&dq=Jewett,+R.P.+(1973).+Hydrogen+Environment+Embrittlement+of+Metals.+NASA+CR-2163.&source=bl&ots=gLefw0uTCv&sig=-FO3HATdym957VXmgbk5aWfUtCk&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjM4NzauKHeAhXi-ioKHfv1DloQ6AEwBHoECAQQAQ#v=onepage&q=Jewett%2C%20R.P.%20(1973).%20Hydrogen%20Environment%20Embrittlement%20of%20Metals.%20NASA%20CR-2163.&f=false

"Steel with an ultimate tensile strength of less than 1000 MPa (~145,000 psi) or hardness of less than 23 HRC is not generally considered susceptible to hydrogen embrittlement."

Sounds good to me!

Ah, no. You can't cherry pick a quote and change reality. Reality is what it is. Hydrogen presents special problems in handling and materials. Let's just look at a Wikipedia clip on the problem.

If steel is exposed to hydrogen at high temperatures, hydrogen will diffuse into the alloy and combine with carbon to form tiny pockets of methane at internal surfaces like grain boundaries and voids. This methane does not diffuse out of the metal, and collects in the voids at high pressure and initiates cracks in the steel. This selective leaching process is known as hydrogen attack, or high temperature hydrogen attack, and leads to decarburization of the steel and loss of strength and ductility.
Copper alloys which contain oxygen can be embrittled if exposed to hot hydrogen. The hydrogen diffuses through the copper and reacts with inclusions of Cu2O, forming H2O (water), which then forms pressurized bubbles at the grain boundaries. This process can cause the grains to literally be forced away from each other, and is known as steam embrittlement (because steam is produced, not because exposure to steam causes the problem).
A large number of alloys of vanadium, nickel, and titanium absorb significant amounts of hydrogen. This can lead to large volume expansion and damage to the crystal structure leading to the alloys becoming very brittle. This is a particular issue when looking for non-palladium based alloys for use in hydrogen separation membranes.[21]


Sure, with care we can work around problems with hydrogen. This is routinely done with spacecraft H2O2 engines. So what is proposed here is literally "rocket science." It's simply not true that there is a "misguided fear of hydrogen."

No, but seriously, the youtube video shows a tank of compressed hydrogen being shot. The gases escape and quickly rise into the atmosphere.

If we tried that same test with either natural gas, gasoline, or pretty much any other carbon based fuel, it'd probably explode terribly.

Hydrogen is dramatically safer than petroleum.

Bah.

You have not shown that it is safer. Routine tests are done shooting bullets at tanks. All varieties of tanks.

If you are going to criticize my points at least address the correct scientific effect. Shooting tanks doesn't dismiss anything I said. Also the fact that you think liquid fuel tanks will explode when shot tells me you get most of your "scientific knowledge" from movies and TV.

Some years ago I helped a family who had the misfortune to have a propane cylinder stored in their garage malfunction. Their house blew up, there was not one piece of wood left standing. They were severely burned but all lived. This is no different if propane or LPG or h2.

It's just plain stupid to argue that hydrogen is safer than gasoline.

You're just highlighting your ignorance. It's not liquid, it's compressed gas.

If you want to talk about liquid hydrogen, well, that's a different thread.

Only an idiot would think LPG = hydrogen. That's like saying "COPPER IS IDENTICAL TO IRON IN EVERY WAY".

It's two entirely separate chemicals.

Uh huh. You don't know that elements have different states of matter, and that compressed gases such as hydrogen and LPG form into a liquid but I need to go back to 8th grade science.

Literally no one said that they are the same in every way. However they are both compressed fuels subject to the explosive atomization effect I previously described. Keep digging that hole. You are SOOOOO CLOOOSE.

Seriously, you need to come back after some chemistry and physics. You are wasting your time on this subject.

Or grab a triple point diagram and come back, but be ready to learn some things.

.......Still waiting for that triple point diagram.

While you are at it how about some MSDS sheets?

Lol. It's crazy how wrong you guys are about pretty much everything.

It's kinda cool having my own personal trolls though. Spendulus and TECSHARE both have their points refuted multiple times, yet they call "me" the idiot.

It's pretty obvious these guys are concern trolls.

Finding the MSDS is pretty easy; you literally just google element name + "msds".

Are you insane or just retarded? Nah, it seems you lack the ability to read. That's par the course.

If you think a chemical that causes leukemia is safer than one that does not, you probably deserve to have cancer.

I don't get how you think you're winning, you're just being more and more retarded by the post. Your arguments wane in strength each and every post. I prove you wrong, each and every post. You just troll, each and every single post. I don't understand why you're even bothering unless you're either doing this because you have no actual life (in which case, I recommend a shotgun to your head) or you're state sponsored, in which you should probably put a shotgun to THEIR head.

Maybe a corporate oil shill rather than state sponsored, then again doesn't Russia have a pretty strong interest in oil? Maybe you're just both.  Roll Eyes

.....
If you think a chemical that causes leukemia is safer than one that does not, you probably deserve to have cancer......

Yes, that is certainly possible.


Lol. It's crazy how wrong you guys are about pretty much everything.

It's kinda cool having my own personal trolls though. Spendulus and TECSHARE both have their points refuted multiple times, yet they call "me" the idiot.

It's pretty obvious these guys are concern trolls.

Finding the MSDS is pretty easy; you literally just google element name + "msds".
.....

So now you are saying liquid gasoline is safer? That... is exactly what we have been arguing. Thanks for going full circle with your retardation.

Wow! I've now learned one can find an MSDS with a Google search!

And Gasoline's an element, lol!

Use your new found skill to search an actual element like I was implying originally; hydrogen.

Compare and contrast with gasoline; make my arguments for me Wink

You are truly wasting your time, but I do have a question.

Just one quote from MSDS for liquid h2 (roughly equal to 8000 psi h2 gaseous)

"Isolate spill or leak area for at least 100 meters (330 feet) in all directions. "

THE QUESTION: Are you influenced by the combustion products of h2 being h20 and not predominately Co2, since you view that as a GREAT EVIL?

Because I do suspect that's your motive.

Wasting my time educating the uneducated bums like you? Ha, it's quite fun to educate people on misconceptions. It's just amazing you can muster up any response considering how retarded you actually are.

Liquid hydrogen is literally super cooled. It doesn't matter what liquid cooled material you leak. At least it doesn't cause cancer in its natural state. In reality, you walk away from the frozen cooled liquid that's quickly converting to hydrogen gas (cause air is warmer than literally -200+C). But anyway, other than venting the area, I don't really see what damage would be done by the actual material. It's the lack of heat energy and everything around it that's the problem. If you build a proper containment area for something like "massive huge liquid hydrogen" storage areas (50 liters 8000 psi of liquid hydrogen ~= 111 kwh, which is a crazy amount of energy).

Of course, we're talking about compressed hydrogen rather than liquid hydrogen which doesn't have that whole freezing problem.

Yeah, I actually joined a local fuel cell coalition mailing list. I'm learning about cool applications with hydrogen through those streams. When I started this thread, I didn't. It turns out, there's public funding for these programs, so I might be able to suck off the tit of the masses of people I'm fooling into making the world a better place.

Hydrogen compared to gasoline, propane, or pretty much any other fuel shows it's much safer, especially if you look at the MSDS.

Spendulus, if you're done trolling and willing to learn more about the benefits (because you're nearly to the right path), I'd recommend you join a local coalition for the support of hydrogen.

I already explained in detail above why compressed gas fuels are more dangerous than liquid fuels such as gasoline. If you can't understand why fuel under pressure is more dangerous than fuel in liquid form at atmospheric pressure, then I do not know what to tell you.

Last month a friend of mine was woken up at 4am by fire trucks arriving to put out his neighbor's car fire. It seems the battery had exploded. No, we're not talking Tesla here, but a regular car. Now how do you think that might have happened?

Hydrogen Hazards and Safety
Fire Hazard
Hydrogen is flammable and must be handled with care, just like other flammable substances. In order for hydrogen to ignite, it must be contained and combined with oxygen and an ignition source. If hydrogen is ignited, it burns off very quickly. It is very difficult for the naked eye to detect hydrogen burning, since it burns in the ultraviolet color range.

Burns
In order for hydrogen to turn into a liquid form, it must be cooled to at least minus 423 degrees Fahrenheit. If liquid hydrogen comes into contact with exposed skin, it can cause severe freeze burns. A freeze burn is similar to frostbite. In order to keep hydrogen cooled enough to keep it in a liquid state, it is stored in specialized container that are double-walled and heavily insulated. The chances of the liquid actually escaping and coming into contact with a person's skin are quite small.

Explosion
Hydrogen can explode, but only if it comes into contact with oxygen. Gasoline and propane, which are heavier gases than hydrogen, are more likely to explode. The fumes from each of these tend to stay close to the ground, which increases the likelihood of explosion. One famous explosion and fire associated with hydrogen is the destruction of the Hindenburg in 1937. Hydrogen was used to keep the giant airship in the air. For a number of years, it was thought that the hydrogen was to blame for the fire that broke out as the Hindenburg was coming in for a landing at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey. The entire ship was destroyed by flames in less than one minute.

More recent research has pointed to a different cause for the disaster, however. New evidence has shown that the fabric on the outside of the ship was coated with highly-flammable chemicals that were similar in composition to rocket fuel. An electrical discharge from a storm is now thought to be the true cause of ignition.

The Hindenburg disaster was responsible for the loss of 35 lives. Almost all of these were caused by the people involved jumping from the burning aircraft, as opposed to the fire itself. The hydrogen on board ignited, but the flames would have burned up and away from passengers. The hydrogen fire would have burned off very quickly.

Poisoning
Hydrogen is non-toxic and is not poisonous. Using hydrogen as a fuel source does not create fumes, pollute the atmosphere, or contribute to the global warming that is such a cause for concern today.If appropriate safety measures are taken, hydrogen hazards can be kept to a minimum. There are definite advantages to using hydrogen in industry as opposed to other, more flammable substances like gasoline or propane.

For those fear mongers out there, that's a list of most of the dangers of hydrogen. Let's pull up a couple more.

Quote
This doesn't mean that hydrogen shouldn't be treated with a healthy respect for its dangers, but in practice, these dangers are unlikely to be any greater than those of gasoline. In fact, with its rapid dispersal and tendency to rise, hydrogen could pose less of a threat than the fuels we use now.

There's so much evidence that shows that hydrogen is safe and even possibly safer than our current fuel source.

It's crazy that people believe into the myth that "it's more dangerous than gasoline". I'm sure this myth is propagated by big oil.

If you have any issues with my "previous" sources (literally pulled off random .coms), here one from a .gov:

I use hydrogen fuel on a weekly basis anyway, and can say from personal experience, that the potential for danger is much higher. There are a lot of reasons why we don't use hydrogen commonly as a fuel now but.

Cons:
Proper materials for long term safe combustion are very expensive, its hard on equipment, when it burns you can't see the flame, its difficult to compress, it escapes through container walls

Pros:
Clean burning, water vapor as a byproduct, higher energy density.

As a matter of cost, its been getting cheaper to produce it. New technology that uses Nickle Oxide catalysts instead of Platinum lowered the cost to produce hydrogen gas, at least from water splitting. That said, it still requires that you put more energy into it than you are going to get out. I don't see the benefit over just keeping your electricity as electricity, except for specialized cases.

Rather than use the funds on researching and developing new ways to use hydrogen, I don't see why we wouldn't be better off finding new ways to store and use electricity, and then just generate clean energy from solar/wind/geothermal/hydro and call it good.

We've been searching for the "next" super battery for ages. Honestly, the universe kinda already shows that hydrogen's a great fuel (at least for fusion).

Honestly, just because we have shitty catalyst now doesn't mean they we can't hit better energy conversion rates from and to electricity. Ideally, with perfect catalyst, you could convert nearly freely.

Instead of searching for that magic battery, I don't see why we don't search for the magic catalyst instead.

Liquid or compressed? Also, have you ever had a dangerous incident with hydrogen? If so, can you describe how so?

From all the sources I've read, it is dangerous, but you'd be safer working with hydrogen than gasoline in a refinery.

You really need to be listening to people who have worked with hydrogen and stop believing you know something because you googled it. That's literally a way to get killed.

Fuck dying working with oil. That's how you get killed.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_natural_gas_and_oil_production_accidents_in_the_United_States

All the deaths.

I actually tried research death for hydrogen and got a french link of accidents dating back to the 1980s:

Quote
Thus, 25 mortal accidents involving hydrogen including 5 French accidents (ARIA 169, 170, 176, 3512 and 7956) are
recorded in the ARIA database and constitute 12 % of the studied sample. These accidents have resulted in 80
deaths including 9 in France.

80 deaths due to hydrogen total.

lol....

So you don't want to work in MAKING hydrogen, which is steam reforming with methane. You just want to use it? Or is there GOOD hydrogen and BAD hydrogen, like GOOD being made from water and BAD being made from fossil fuels?

Because we sure wouldn't want to have the BAD stuff, right?

Hey, did you know that owning a pool increases your chances of drowning? Owning a car increases your chances of getting in an auto accident. Also owning more than 2 functional brain cells increases your chances of understanding the more commonly used it is the more deaths there will be, and that is not a valid indicator of the safety of the technology.

Liquid or compressed? Also, have you ever had a dangerous incident with hydrogen? If so, can you describe how so?

From all the sources I've read, it is dangerous, but you'd be safer working with hydrogen than gasoline in a refinery.

I generate my own hydrogen with water splitting, compress it to a low working pressure, under 2 million Pa, and burn it. I do not store it, I use it as soon as I produce it, for a few reasons. One, I can't store it, hydrogen atoms are small, and they slip through solid objects. Two, while storing any compressed gas is typically not the safest thing, its far more difficult to find hydrogen gas leaks than a more common odorized fuel. If the propane line on your gas stove springs a leak, you smell it and know there is a gas leak. In that case, don't light any open flames, turn off the gas, and get some ventilation going. No big deal. With hydrogen you don't know until its too late.

The issues I've personally come in contact with are burn hazards, and backfire. As I mentioned, burning hydrogen, there is no flame that you can see. If there is a hydrogen fire somewhere, you might not even know if other things around it aren't catching on fire. On that note, I'll mention that you need to wear protective eye wear to protect from radiation. The second one that I've dealt with somewhat frequently is startling, but not dangerous since I don't compress it much, is backfire. I use flashback arrestors in my torch lines, but I've had condensation accumulate in my fuel lines, dampen the arrestors, and then have a little explosion blow the hoses off of my generator a few times.

Now I'm sure there are ways to mitigate backfire with a lot more certainty, but the fact that I have an issue with it, even with safety gear in place is a little alarming. We trust brain dead morons with fueling up their cars at a gas station. I think we'd have a lot more accidents with hydrogen in the hands of the general public.

Ah, so you're doing hobbist hydrogen projects more than anything. I've read stories about low-pressure hydrogen.

The thing with hydrogen leaks is they're only dangerous in enclosed spaces. Hydrogen rapidly dissipates (as it just floats upwards); so leaks aren't really an issue unless there is flame nearby or if it's enclosed.

In some states, we don't allow brain dead morons even to pump their own gasoline...

Ah, so you're doing hobbist hydrogen projects more than anything. I've read stories about low-pressure hydrogen.

The thing with hydrogen leaks is they're only dangerous in enclosed spaces. Hydrogen rapidly dissipates (as it just floats upwards); so leaks aren't really an issue unless there is flame nearby or if it's enclosed.

In some states, we don't allow brain dead morons even to pump their own gasoline...

Well, its a bit beyond hobbyist, but its not industrial production. Saying leaks are only dangerous around flames or enclosed spaces is a not very helpful condition to place, considering we are talking about fuel gases around flames/combustion.

I don't recall why, but I was under the impression that fuel gases that are lighter than air pose some additional risk, such as acetylene, from when I was researching propane vs acetylene fuel sources. I mostly only work with Propane and Hydrogen though, so I can't recall the finer details of acetylene at the moment.

Another thing I thought reading back at your posts. You said Hydrogen Refineries are safer than Gasoline refineries. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on that since I don't know if they are actually safer, or if there are just 1000x more oil refineries than hydrogen refineries. But to the point about brain dead people pumping or not being allowed to pump their own gas. People working in refineries are rigorously trained on all aspects of safety. Their equipment is top of the line, they pay attention to hazard details that others wouldn't know about, or might not have the safety equipment mandated by OSHA or whoever.

I hesitate to say that anything is more dangerous than something else. How do you say, whats more dangerous, a duck or a barbed wire fence? It really depends on the situation. The same is true of any fuel. I guess my position on the matter is that gasoline is more idiot proof than hydrogen. If you want to be safe with gasoline, you don't put it in the oven, don't throw a match at it, and if you smell it or see it leaking out, you do something about it that isn't throwing a match at it. Hydrogen is less intuitive, and I think there is more room for mistakes to be made. I know all of the safety protocols, I follow a pretty strict safety routine, like that guy you all know that actually checks and adjusts their car mirrors every time before they start driving, yet I still run into somewhat hazardous situations. I'm confident I wont blow up, but I'm also purposely limiting my risk exposure by not allowing another variable of pressure potential energy along with my chemical potential energy.

Individuals aside, As soon as we have hydrogen for consumer applications, we now have to trust Toyota hydrogen combustion engines, *shudders* Chevy hydrogen combustion engines. Weird chinese off brand $50 leaf blowers hydrogen combustion engines, etc. That's why I think its better to skip hydrogen fuel development research and just stick with a more sure thing. We've been searching for that magic battery for years now, we haven't found it, but battery technology is getting better. I think it'd be cheaper and safer to get closer and closer to that magic battery than to engineer "pretty" safe hydrogen appliances.

It's worth looking at Ford and Chevrolet. Chev became "gov motors", all the know-it-all greenies went in, forced them to make the puke-worthy Volt.

Ford stayed independent, kept improving the internal combustion engine, now has a F150 for sale that gets 30 mpg.

Pretty cool, right?

I'm not sure anyone's petitioning for hydrogen combustion when hydrogen fuel cell is so much safer. No flame = safer to work with.

Why do people fear hydrogen so much? It's literally safer than gasoline. It may seem that several myths were spread throughout the public (probably by big-oil).

Perhaps the dangers are a bit overinflated. But we do have a rather dramatic example of how hydrogen could be dangerous.

I may have a misunderstanding of hydrogen fuel cells, isn't hydrogen driven through a catalytic converter and combusted?

I take that back, I was mistaken about how the energy was captured, its not thermal its creating current from the splitting of H2 gas and separating the electrons off. In this case, how is that any different than just using batteries? I suppose the only benefit would be "charge" time where you just refill the hydrogen rather than recharging a battery in its place. It'd still be far less energy efficient than just using batteries.  If we make the splitting process more efficient and it takes 1.1 joules to get 1 joule worth of hydrogen. Then you get a 50% efficiency from the fuel cell, wouldn't you have been better off just taking that 1.1 joules, putting it into a battery at negligible loss, and running a 80% efficient electric motor?

I'm all for clean energy, I'm particularly pro nuclear, but I'd be perfectly content if we increased our solar/wind/hydro/tidal/geothermal power instead. I'm not "against" hydrogen. I just don't think its a practical option.

Batteries aren't very energy dense. It takes hundreds of kg of batteries to equal the same amount of energy as a tank of compressed hydrogen.

Batteries are about 10x more expensive than hydrogen tank / fuel cell combination (per kwh). Fuel cells have more durability than li-ion batteries (so longer lifetimes without having to replace the systems).


Technically, fuel cells can get up to 60% currently. As we find better catalyst for PEM fuel cells, it's theoretically possible to hit 95-99.99%.

Both technologies do use an electric motor, so that drive-train remains the same, allowing you to take advantage of features such as regenerative braking.

The problem really with batteries is the energy density... there's absolutely no way you're going to be able to compete with a battery (or capacitor) against compressed hydrogen in terms of energy / weight.

If we had magic super batteries, I'd say "sure, let's skip the step of hydrogen", but we've been working with battery technology for like 2000 years. While battery energy technology is getting better and better, it's not even close to the energy density than compressed hydrogen gives.

--

I think hydrogen is the best solution going forward, as it requires way less resources to create the hydrogen tank and PEM fuel cell than what it takes to make a li-ion battery. Also, production of hydrogen can be done cleanly with a nuclear reactor (steam biproduct -> hydrogen instead of massive cooling towers to reclaim water).

Hydrogen can be used in many applications... cars, boats, and even planes. There's no way we're going to be able to fly a jet with batteries. Batteries are just simply too heavy for the energy they hold.

Perhaps you should read the wikipedia article. Most individuals died from jumping. Out of the 85 people onboard, only 35 people died. And there's no evidence anyone died due to the hydrogen. This thread covered the hindenburg hydrogen myth several times now... which shows you hadn't read before posting.

     First of all, the Wikipedia article on the Hindenburg does acknowledge that the most accepted theory is that the hydrogen was ignited by a static spark.
Quote
The theory that hydrogen was ignited by a static spark is the most widely accepted theory as determined by the official crash investigations.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindenburg_disaster#Cause_of_ignition

     Second, I qualified my statement.
Quote
Perhaps the dangers are a bit overinflated.

     Third, the people obviously jumped to their death because they were trying to escape the flames. Just like in the Titanic, the iceberg didn't directly kill anyone. However, the Titanic crashing into it definitely started the ball rolling for many to die. So I don't really see your point. Especially when you state that only 35 died, like its some insignificant number.
However, I realize that gasoline is also a highly volatile substance that can also have negative circumstances if not properly contained.

Yes, the Pinto had problems, but you have to pretty much go to that to show "cars exploding."

Movie producers routinely have to add explosives to get the "car to explode."

By the way, it's important to note that the Pintos did not actually "Explode." You are seeing a rapidly moving flame front based on a fuel mist, not detonation.

By contrast hydrogen is gonna actually explode. Giant difference.

In the grand scheme of things, more people died between your post and this post from dirty air inhalation from coal, but that's not a big deal (to most people, it seems).

Not all blimp technology is safe it seems (regardless of the fuel used); http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2011/06/14/blimp-pilot-dies-saving-passengers-from-fiery-crash/

Turns out using flammable lighter than air gases to float isn't the safest thing in the world.

Highlight tragic events involving individuals is easy to do with any energy technology. Take a look at nuclear and all those disasters, yet it's still statistically safer than solar roof top installation...

These knee jerk emotional reactions to disasters aren't a great way to define "safety" of the technologies involved.

Oh WELL THAT'S NOT DYING FROM A GASOLINE FIRE! THAT'S DYING FROM SUFFOCATION!

Be logically consistent please. When it's hydrogen, you want to assert that Hindenburg deaths were not from the hydrogen. When it's gasoline, side effects of the disaster are included in the death count.

The vast majority of people are way smarter than you  Cool

Overall, the cause of death was flying in a blimp. If it were helium, there's a good chance many people would have died (probably the same amount). It's crazy how people date back to an incident that occurred in the last millennium as a danger.

I wonder how many people first died when fire was utilized by man? I'd imagine thousands Roll Eyes

Car fires/explosions are incredibly uncommon. I'd be willing to bet that cars full of gasoline are safer than a vehicle with a 10,000 PSI tank of nitrogen, let alone hydrogen. When servicing machinery, pneumatic pressure is a dangerous proposition. Its easy to cut electricity and bleed a fuel line. Forgetting that there is a hose full of compressed air somewhere is somewhat common.
 
All of that said, if a billion people come into contact with ducks, and 2 people die from them. And one person comes into contact with a shark and dies from it, that doesn't mean ducks are more dangerous than sharks. Its kind of hard to draw any type of useful conclusion about hydrogen safety based on a small handful of incidents and their casualty counts, versus completely unrelated metrics, ie a blimp versus cars.

About energy density, cost, etc all of the limiting factors of batteries, they improve every year. Internal combustion engines for example haven't gotten all that much better in the past 100 years. The Model T got like 20 miles per gallon. Don't get me wrong, ICEs are becoming more efficient, more reliable, etc, but not at the same rate as batteries. In under 10 years, the cost per KWH of electric car batteries has decreased 70%, and the energy density has increased 3x recently with new Lithium batteries. Assuming it'd take... 30 years generously to introduce hydrogen as a useful fuel, where will battery technology be at that point? Just to reiterate, my position is to skip hydrogen, and just improve what we have for clean electricity already.

On a side note, while I was looking for some info about the fuel cells themselves, I found this article. I didn't really use the information in it to draw any conclusions, but its pretty interesting.

I'm sure you are familiar with Burt Rutan's Spaceship One concept and vehicles. During testing of the nitrous oxide rocket motor, there was a mishap. That was a hybrid motor, with the nitrous oxide as the oxidizer and plastic as the fuel. The plastic simply lined the sides of the combustion chamber. This is considered a far safer motor than either a solid propellant motor or a bipropellant motor.

There was a mishap. The N2O tank had a weak point, and it disintegrated. The internal force of the pressurized contents threw the pieces out, literally with the force of an explosion. Three engineers were killed 800 yards distant.

That was pretty much the exact type of tank that would be required for h2 storage in a car. The talk about those tanks being safe has to be taken with more than a grain of salt.

I like how all of a sudden, idiots think nitrogen is the exact same chemical as hydrogen.

Let's base all the fears of previous gas failures on hydrogen because there's other gases that had what feasibly could be similar issues.

So much misguided fear in today's society; such sad.

Nitrogen is not nitrous oxide.

An oxidizer tank does not explode.

There is no difference in which pressurized gas is contained, when the containment breaks open. Then the tank disassembles rapidly. The speed of escaping gas may be calculated from its pressure; the force and speed that it accelerates shrapnel may be similarly calculated.

You know nothing about these subjects.

That is a very good point. Looking at this from an insurance perspective, I wouldn't touch it with a 100ft pole. Liquid fuel cars at least are pretty much only a danger to the driver and at most someone they impact. Pressurized gas fuel tanks are also a danger to however many bystanders and first responders that may be even great distances away. That is a liability nightmare.

Wow, a thought just occurred to me. Think of those cars with h2 popping off in the middle of one of those California fires. That'd be like a damn war zone.

Yes, there are other issues. Traffic jams in tunnels / accidents in tunnels. Parking garages. For that matter, any garage including home garages.

There was a family that I helped out some time back, that had stored a BBQ propane bottle in their garage. It leaked, and their house blew up. That house was nothing but a scatter of 2x4s about 300 feet. Nothing else but the concrete slab. H2 would certainly be more dangerous than propane.

Ahaha, idiots think propane is hydrogen. That's great.

Jesus christ, someone needs to learn chemical elements and chemical compounds. "THESE ARE DANGEROUS CAUSE DEY SEEM SIMILAR BEING GASES"

The amount of retardation though; like no wonder the infrastructure isn't deployed with retards spreading the FUD.

I like how all of a sudden, idiots think nitrogen is the exact same chemical as hydrogen.

Let's base all the fears of previous gas failures on hydrogen because there's other gases that had what feasibly could be similar issues.

So much misguided fear in today's society; such sad.

I used nitrogen as an example in my post, because its safe. My point was that a non reactive inert gas at 10,000 PSI is still a gas at 10,000 PSI. All of those movie scenes you see of people shooting bullets at car's fuel tanks and them blowing up is done with explosives, it doesn't actually work that way. If you shoot a bullet at a 10,000 PSI tank, there are going to be issues. Car crashes don't often cause fuel fires, a crash with a pressurized tank on board would probably cause the entire car to turn into shrapnel.

Pressurized containers are spooky when you consider that there are potential major forces that could be applied. I don't know if a fender bender would cause your car to explode, but a highway speed crash very well could, I might need to look into that. Just imagine the consequences of keeping a scuba tank in your car with you at all times. 12 gallons of gasoline or whatever a typical car holds isn't all that dangerous. If it ignites, the car is going to be engulfed in flames. Blow a hydrogen tank, and I'd be significantly more dangerous than an IED.

I think the point was made that hydrogen is more dangerous than propane, with relation to the pressure it needs to be kept under. Not that it is similar to propane.

10000 PSI of the chemical matter actually really matters when you shoot the tank.


People aren't reading links, i'm pretty much ready to lock this shit because people are too retarded to actually LOOK at the research done with hydrogen. they broadcast their fears (thanks oil corps).

It's a fucking losing battle against the morons.
You literally cannot say "10000 psi tank of whatever == the same no matter what".

The false equivalency is just unwarranted fear mongering.

PSI is a measure of force per unit area. 10,000 PSI of air and 10,000 PSI of nitroglycerin have the same potential energy from the pressure. There is additional chemical energy, but we are just talking about the pressure.

Each chemical escapes different. Each compound has different amounts of volumes. It's not just 'OH! LOOK DANGEROUS COMPRESSION ALL EXPLODES DA SAME, HERP DERP'

You need to stop the false equivalency and irrelevancy.

Lets take a step back and make sure there are no misunderstandings here. Cars use the chemical potential energy from the combustion of gasoline to create kinetic energy for the car to move. The whole point of a fuel source, is to convert potential energy into kinetic energy. There is chemical potential energy, pneumatic potential energy, electrical potential energy, etc. To make Hydrogen a feasible fuel source, it needs to be compressed and kept under high pressure. That means you need to keep a pressurized fuel source in your vehicle in order to use hydrogen as fuel. As a basic principal, the pressurized fuel will have two energy components to it. 1) The potential energy from the pressurized tank, and 2) the chemical potential energy from the fuel.

We are saying that the potential energy just from the pressure is a hazard when you start applying potential structural damage, such as car accidents.

Look up hydrogen explosions; find me a link that shows compressed hydrogen exploding similar to LNG or other more dangerous things like gasoline. You can't because it simply doesn't work that way.

Hydrogen just doesn't explode the same way that OTHER high pressure gases explode. They're not even remotely relevant here, but people are so stupid they can't seem to separate the concept of 'UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT GASES'.

It doesn't matter if its hydrogen or nitrogen, or metal ball bearings. Pressure is pressure. Its not a matter of it being hydrogen, its a matter of hydrogen fuel requiring a highly pressurized container. If structural damage occurs to a highly pressurized container, explosive decompression occurs. The water heater video from Mythbusters is just pressurized water, yet it still explodes when the pressure goes higher than what the container can handle.

I don't think you're reading my links or responses which is the problem. You're saying 'OH NO! PRESSURE == BAD NO MATTER WHAT' and I'm trying to tell you; the way hydrogen escapes mitigates those risks.

'BUT LE PRESSURE = BADDDDD' -- wtf, listen to me.... HYDROGEN PROPERTIES MITIGATE RISKS BETTER THAN OTHER CHEMICALS.

'BUT THEY'RE ALL THE SAMEEEEEEEE' wtf... i give up with you.

Energy is energy, you can disregard the contents. Hydrogen is not a magic substance that defies the laws of physics. Tell me the PSI and the volume of the tank, and I can tell you exactly how many joules of energy are stored there. That potential energy can be converted to kinetic energy, and the kinetic energy is what causes problems.

I'm not sure why you felt the need to word it in caps and sarcasm, but without the sarcasm, you are correct.

Scuba Tank video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyINNUaXa8Q
More!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Q_nVD3fkIs

Full of air, not an explosive chemical. Unless you are saying that if that scuba tank was full of hydrogen, and someone popped the top off, all of the hydrogen would just stay inside?

10000 PSI of the chemical matter actually really matters when you shoot the tank.

You literally cannot say "10000 psi tank of whatever == the same no matter what".

The false equivalency is just unwarranted fear mongering.

PSI is a measure of force per unit area. 10,000 PSI of air and 10,000 PSI of nitroglycerin have the same potential energy from the pressure. There is additional chemical energy, but we are just talking about the pressure.

Blue is a bit right but in the reverse of what he believes.

Assume that simultaneously, a 10,000psi tank of N2 and a tank of H2 fail.

When 10,000 PSI of a gas is free to move out against 14.7 PSI, the momentum of the gas is the same regardless of what element it is. Smaller, lighter molecules accelerate and reach a higher terminal speed that larger molecules (example, N2=28 vs H2=2).

H2 uncombusted and released would be more destructive.

From Wikipedia.

The potential energy stored in an explosive material may, for example, be

chemical energy, such as nitroglycerin or grain dust

pressurized gas, such as a gas cylinder or aerosol can

nuclear energy, such as in the fissile isotopes uranium-235 and plutonium-239

Explosive materials may be categorized by the speed at which they expand. Materials that detonate (the front of the chemical reaction moves faster through the material than the speed of sound) are said to be "high explosives" and materials that deflagrate are said to be "low explosives".


The wave front from expanding (not exploding or "detonating") H2 is roughly 1200 meters per second, that's four times faster than a 45 caliber bullet.

But I like hydrogens! Yes, I like hydrogens injected into ICE engines. Most of all when they are safely attached in chains until the moment their power is needed. Carbon makes a great carrier for those hydrogens. If we linked the carbon atoms together to form a chain, we could have hydrogens all around on that chain and it would be safe, right up until we wanted to combine it with Oxygen.

Wait...

Did I just invent gasoline?
