Swedish researchers develop ultra-fast hydrogen leak detector. The discovery could provide a great leap forward in the feasibility of using hydrogen-powered cars to curb global transport emissions. While green transport proponents are busting a gut to develop components and chemistry for sustainable batteries that won’t wreak havoc through materials extraction, the case for hydrogen-powered cars may have made a big leap forward thanks to researchers in Sweden. A team at Gothenburg’s Chalmers University of Technology has developed a sensor that could overcome one of the biggest obstacles to hydrogen fuel cell transport – the hugely inflammable nature of the gas when combined with oxygen.
