Hydrogen-Baked Bread
Sarah Rich, 11 Aug 06

The Australian Government's Antarctic Division is running a hydrogen demonstration project to test the viability of long-term use of hydrogen to power field stations in Antarctica, beginning with Mawson Station and a penguin-monitoring camp.

They hydrogen will be produced with energy generated by wind turbines, and transported in cylinders on a specially designed trailer across the sea ice to Béchervaise Island, some four kilometres away. The trailer will be towed using a hydrogen-powered quad bike modified at the University of Tasmania. The hydrogen will then be used in a hydrogen/LPG gas stove for cooking and in a fuel cell that will generate electricity to run heaters, lights, computers and a bread-maker.

Thank, Roland!
