Among other things, hydrogen experts can assist with hydrogen fuel cells that produce electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen atoms. The hydrogen reacts with oxygen across an electrochemical cell similar to that of a battery to produce electricity, water, and small amounts of heat. However, instead of storing and releasing the electricity as a battery does, a fuel cell generates its current from a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen. The oxygen comes from the air, while the hydrogen is compressed and stored in a tank onboard the vehicle. This hydrogen is replenished at a filling station, like gasoline or diesel fuel. The fuel cell does create exhaust, but because the exhaust is water, as it is simply the reaction product of hydrogen and oxygen. There are many different types of fuel cells are available for a wide range of applications.
A hydrogen expert or hydrogen consultant is someone who has a significant background in chemistry and significant experience with hydrogen and the production of electricity. The hydrogen expert can assist clients in a myriad of bioeconomy areas where hydrogen, hydrogen fuels cells, or hydrogen reactions are present. In matters involving bioeconomy litigation, hydrogen experts are often called upon to serve as expert witnesses to assist the attorneys with understanding the chemistry involved and the processes (and their failures) related to technical issues.
