Hydrogen An Alternative To Oil

Oil is seeing lately as a creator of conflicts, either by pollution that it generates in the environment, as in the rising prices of fuel, and since then, the wars resulting from its control, given that we all know that it is a scarce commodityexpensive and non-renewable.

That's why they are trying to discover new alternatives to oil for use in transport and machinery, and hydrogen is one that better results is having.

Its main advantage is its abundance, as well as basic and light, but which to find it in its pure state it must be processes that require other sources of energy, such as for example the electric.

Also seeing the positive side, the electricity is easy to get through renewables such as solar or wind, and hydrogen is found in the water, which is why none of the two requirements are scarce.

One of the main advantages is that it does not emit harmful gases to living organisms, contaminants or causing the greenhouse effect.
