Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Energy in the 90's


This paper examines the role of fossil fuels and advocates a proactive energy policy to stimulate the use of domestically produced 'clean' energy carriers (fuels), such as hydrogen. The benefits of hydrogen as a fuel are presented. The conversion to hydrogen fueled transportation systems, using existing technology, offers immediate environmental and economic benefits. For example, the blending of hydrogen with natural gas to create a vehicle fuel (named Hythane) will significantly reduce tailpipe emissions.
