In 2005 New Mexico adopted a policy to allow businesses to deduct the value of biomass equipment and biomass materials used for the processing of biopower, biofuels or biobased products in determining the amount of Compensating Tax due.
Dr. Adam Weber of the Energy Department’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory was recently honored for his cutting edge work to help make hydrogen fuel cells and their components more efficient and durable. Dr. Weber talks to us about what inspired him to become a scientist, why he loves Lord of the Rings, and gives some advice to future scientists.
As the hydrogen industry expands, refueling infrastructure needs to be developed to keep fuel cell electric vehicles powered and moving on America’s roadways. University students can play a big role in this through the Hydrogen Education Foundation’s Hydrogen Student Design Contest, supported by the Energy Department.
