Hydrogen Fuel Experts Say Their Technology is Ready

Laramie, Wyo. – Supporters of hydrogen power say their clean-burning fuel should be running many vehicles in just a few years.

The Mountain States Hydrogen Business Council is hosting the conference, which is drawing experts from as far away as Israel and India. Conference chairman David Haberman says the message of the meeting is that hydrogen should be considered a fuel that can be used today.

Haberman says that previous concerns about hydrogen exploding in a crash have been resolved. He says now hydrogen is safer than gasoline. The conference in Laramie continues through Thursday.
