FCVs fueled with pure hydrogen emit no pollutants -- only water and heat -- while those using hydrogen-rich fuels and a reformer would produce only small amounts of air pollutants. In addition, FCVs can be three times as efficient as similarly sized conventional vehicles and may also incorporate other advanced technologies to increase efficiency.
UAlbany's Task Force on Environmental Sustainability, created as part of UAlbany's "Go Green" Initiative, works to assess the state of the University's sustainability policies and practices through the work of several committees, including the Green Commerce Committee. The Committee's goals are to examine procurement practices at UAlbany; assess the waste stream and potential for composting and replacing "disposables" with "re-usables;" and focus on "green" product purchases.
