What fuels Mirai?

LEARN ABOUT
HYDROGEN

WHAT IS IT?

HYDROGEN IS FUEL.
PURE AND SIMPLE.
One of our most promising fuel sources is lighter than air and incredibly pure. When used in a fuel cell, it is highly efficient and leaves no carbon emissions behind. And best of all, it's pretty much everywhere.
THE MOST ABUNDANT ELEMENT IN THE UNIVERSE IS IN:
  • WATER
  • PLANTS
  • MANURE

HOW'S IT MADE?

THERE ARE A LOT OF WAYS
TO PRODUCE HYDROGEN
But hydrogen binds to almost anything. So before it can be used, it must be
Using a variety of process technologies available today, hydrogen can be separated by:
Steam reforming of methane is the most common method for producing hydrogen 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.
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.
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 to extract hydrogen. The electricity can be sourced from clean, renewable energy such as wind, solar, or hydro.

  • GASIFICATION

HYDROGEN HISTORY

Powerful enough to power buildings.
Throughout history, hydrogen has been used as a proven source of energy. As we advance in fuel cell technology, we’re ready to leave our mark in creating a more efficient and cleaner way to power the automotive future.

1939
Generators

Francis Thomas Bacon creates the first fuel cell genarator, producing 5kW of power.

1950-1960s
Spacecrafts

NASA equips their crafts with fuel cells for onboard electronics and water.

1960
Forklifts

Machinery company Allis-Chalmers builds the first fuel cell forklift.

2002
Submarines

The German Navy uses fuel cell technology to power their U31 submarine.
