How is Hydrogen Used?
HYDRO CELL FOR ALL ENGINE TYPES
In the United States alone, around 9 million tons of hydrogen are produced, enough to power 30 million vehicles or 9 million homes. Almost all of this hydrogen is used in refining, processing foods, or metals. California, Louisiana, and Texas are (by far) the largest producers of hydrogen.
Of course, we cannot forget our beloved National Aeronautics and Space Administration. NASA uses hydrogen as an energy fuel to launch rockets into space. Shuttles get lifted into space using liquid hydrogen fuel. Fuel Cells (also called hydrogen batteries) completely power the programs electrical systems.
Hydrogen fuel cells produce electricity. Smaller fuel cells have capabilities of powering electric cars. The Larger fuel cells can produce electricity in country areas where power lines are scarce.
Some portable fuel cells can be bought to provide long lasting power souces for cellular phones, laptop computers. The military uses portable fuel cells to power some of its devices as well.
