THE HYDROGEN ECONOMY
HYDROGEN ... abundant, clean and quite practical


Toyota has been making a serious committment to hydrogen fuel cell technology
Toyota has developed a hydrogen fuel cell technology that has been deployed in a medium size passenger car ... the Mirai that is being sold and operated in California, USA.
How the Mirai works

Toyota is now adapting this fuel cell technology for use in heavy trucks. The first experimental vehicle was suitable for short distance freight movement and was tested around the docks in California. A second experimental vehicle has been developed with a longer range more suited to over-the-road service.

Hydrogen Production
Hydrogen can be separated by using a variety of process technologies that are available:
(1) Steam reforming of methane is the most common method of hydrogen production today. It starts with liquids or gases containing hydrogen like natural gas or sustainable biogas sourced from landfills. The fuel then reacts with steam at high temperatures in a reformer, leaving you with hydrogen.
(2) Gasification is a process in which organic materials, like crops and livestock waste, are converted into hydrogen. The organic materials are placed under high temperatures, which triggers a reaction that separates the hydrogen.
(3) Hydrogen can also be produced by separating water into its two primary elements—hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2). This process, known as electrolysis, passes an electrical current through the water.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
