Proposed bill looks to support ethanol-to-hydrogen production.
According to RFA, the proposed legislation seeks to build and install an ethanol-to-hydrogen fueling station and convert 10 internal combustion hybrid electric vehicles to run on hydrogen within the first year of the project, fund the continued operation of the hybrid electric vehicles fueled at the ethanol-to-hydrogen reformer for the subsequent two years of the project, and collect emissions and fuel economy data on the vehicles under a variety of operating and weather conditions.
"We must start relying more heavily on renewable energy as part of our comprehensive energy solution in this country," said Harkin. "Part of that solution includes using more renewable fuels like ethanol. And another part of the solution is developing hydrogen-powered vehicles and the systems to support them."
