Peter Hoffmann, Editor and Publisher SSTs, HST's Unlikely to Use Hydrogen COLUMBUS, OHIO -- There is a broad consensus among top echelons of the airline and aircraft industries that an advanced high-speed commercial aircraft beyond the Concorde's capabilities is needed by the turn of the century. But regardless whether it's an advanced SST or a hypersonic vehicle, it's unlikely that it will be fueled by liquid hydrogen. This at least was the way one participant in the First High Speed Commercial Flight Symposium Oct. 22-23 here summed up his impressions of the prevailing views of ...

LAURENT, QUEBEC/CANADA -- Canadian National Railways and Canada's Hydrogen Industry Council (HIC) are quietly embarking on a feasibility study for a hydrogen-powered rail system. If successful, and if all milestones are met, several experimental diesel locomotives powered by liquid hydrogen could be operating in Canada by the end of the decade. The six-month study is the initial stage of a proposed four-phase program that among other things, proposes to ...
