The Dow Chemical Company (DOW) and General Motors Corp. (GM), launched the second phase of their joint project to prove the viability of hydrogen fuel cells for motor vehicles and possibly for distributed power generation. The project has now expanded from a single GM test cell, installed in February 2004, to a multi-cell pilot plant at Dow’s Texas Operations in Freeport, TX. “In the first phase of this project, we collectively learned a lot about generating power from byproduct hydrogen via fuel cell technology, and now we’re ready to build on what we’ve learned,” said Gordon Slack, Dow’s Global Business Director for Energy and Climate Change. “Dow is excited to contribute to this important project. It represents another step in the search for cost-effective fuel alternatives, with the potential to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.” [ more ]
