Clearly this can be achieved in two ways-either by adding hydrogen or by removing carbon. Although many of the new processes are only at the pilot-plant stage of development, their superiority over the old methods is due to increased sophistication of the chemical engineering employed plus improvements in the catalysts available.

Solid metallic tanks are required for its storage, but the principal drawback is its currently expensive method of production by electrolysis of water. Development of an efficient process for the photodecomposition of water is the key, and work towards this is progressing slowly. However if some of these barriers can be overcome its attractions are obvious. To demonstrate and assess the feasibility of hydrogen, a village has been constructed in the United States which uses hydrogen as its only energy medium-for cooking, heating and even powering automobiles and buses.
