Massachusetts legislation favors fuel cell technology

| Friday, September 06, 2002

In an article on fuel cells (February 2002), Land Line Technical Editor Paul Abelson said fuel cell technology will open a new era in truck design and driver ameneties. According to Abelson, fuel cells work by combining hydrogen and oxygen to generate needed current without noise, without vibration, without exhaust and pollution, and with minimal fuel consumption.

Apparently, the Massachusetts Legislature agrees. An initiative to commercialize fuel cell technology has made it through the House and the Senate Committee on Science and Technology. It's now on the table before the Senate Ways and Means Committee.
