The article reports that General Motors Corp. (GM) this week announced a $10m research programme to find better ways of storing hydrogen fuel in cars using metal hydrides and a new hydride blend that punches well above its weight. Solid metal hydrides can absorb hydrogen molecules into their structure and release them to power a fuel cell without the danger, bulk and inefficiency of compressed or cooled tanks. GM and Sandia National Laboratories announced a four-year joint effort on hydrogen storage.
