University of Iowa Students Develop Fuel Cell-powered Toy Car
Local Iowa television news channel KWWL recently reported that students at the University of Iowa have developed a hydrogen fuel cell-powered toy car that is capable of running for three to four hours before refueling.
“It’s probably one of the simplest designs available for a fuel cell,” said University of Iowa chemistry professor Johna Leddy.
According to KWWL, the students said they believe hydrogen-powered automobiles could eventually demonstrate fuel efficiency three times that of standard vehicles, although the necessary technology is more than 15 years away.
