An arbiter of certain auto industy standards has certified a high-pressure hydrogen storage tank large enough to make fuel cells a viable power source for vehicles, General Motors Corp. said recently. Creating storage tanks that can hold enough hydrogen to provide a sufficient driving range while being lightweight and safe enough to withstand collisions has been a key challenge to bringing hydrogen-fed fuel cell vehicles to market. The tank approved by Germany's Technical Inspection Association holds 10,000 psi - enough of the gas to provide a range of nearly 300 miles before refueling. Previously certified hydrogen tanks were half that size. See the full information at Fuel Cell Today. [1]
