Hydrogen vehicle

A hydrogen vehicle is a vehicle, such as an automobile or aeroplane, which uses hydrogen as its primary source of power for locomotion.

Hydrogen can be obtained through various thermochemical methods utilizing methane (natural gas), coal (by a process known as coal gasification), liquified petroleum gas, biomass (biomass gasification), or from water by electrolysis or by a process called thermolysis.
