101 Miller, Jan D.Chemical utilization of sequestered carbon dioxide as a booster of hydrogen economyFor many, hydrogen in a pure hydrogen economy would be like natural gas in today's energy economy. Unfortunately, hydrogen's physical properties are unsuited to the energy market's requirements in terms of packaging, storage, transfer, and delivery. In this paper, a hybrid energy economy that packag...2008-01-01
