Laurens van Mulukom, a mechanical engineering student at Hogeschool van Amsterdam, talked about why hydrogen is “one of the most innovative fuels to work with,” at Shell Eco-marathon Europe 2012 in Rotterdam. With this year’s competition that ended Saturday taking place on its home country’s soil, <a href=”http://www.h2a.nu/h2a-news/”>Team H2A</a> was proud to achieve a new Dutch efficiency record for a hydrogen vehicle. The team’s fuel cell system with supercapacitors propelled the vehicle 261 kilometers (162.1 miles) per kilowatt-hour. That is the equivalent of more than 2,300 kilometers per liter (5,460 miles per gallon.)
