Boeing and NASA are working together using fuel cells to provide electricity for its planes instead of the onboard generators commonly in use.

A small lightweight system can be developed to extract hydrogen and carbon monoxide from the jet fuel, and use those gases in a solid-oxide fuel cell, which requires much less jet fuel to generate the same amount of electricity. 

Catalyst

Catacel’s (a small company, developing a catalyst with the potential to benefit their fuel-cell system) can make the hydrogen-production process more efficient for these industries, reducing their carbon footprint while saving them money on fuel. 

Catacel is also part of a project under the Department of Energy to adapt its technology for use in carbon-capture devices.
