WSU researchers develop fuel cells for increased airplane efficiency

Washington State University researchers have developed the first fuel cell that can directly convert fuels, such as jet fuel or gasoline, to electricity, providing a dramatically more energy-efficient way to create electric power for planes or cars.
The process could be approximately four times more efficient than a combustion engine because it is based on an electrochemical reaction.

The researchers also have used gasoline to power their fuel cell and envision someday using it to power
