  • German company developed POWERPASTE, a hydrogen-based fuel in the form of a chemical that you can refill.
  • It’s meant to be used for small vehicles, like electric scooters, drones and motorcycles, because mounting a high-pressure hydrogen tank wouldn’t work here.
  • POWERPASTE has high energy storage density, so it could potentially extend battery life for small vehicles.
  • It’s based on hydrogen combined with magnesium, and it releases energy once it meets water.
