WELCOMING MESSAGE to Participants of Hydrogen Energy Forum, WCAEE-HPSA-2022 and Symposium, IFSSEHT-2022 in Montenegro from October 24-31, 2022


to Participants of Hydrogen Energy Forum, WCAEE-HPSA-2022 and Symposium, IFSSEHT-2022 in Montenegro from October 24-31, 2022


Fossil Fuels (i.e., petroleum, natural gas and coal), which meet most of the world’s energy demand today, are being depleted fast. Also, their combustion products are causing the global problems, such as the global warming, climate change, ozone layer depletion, acid rains, oxygen depletion and pollution, which are posing great danger for our environment and eventually for the life in our planet. Many engineers and scientists agree that the solution to these global problems would be replacing the existing fossil fuel system by hydrogen as the fuel and by fuel cells as the energy conversion devices. Hydrogen is the lightest, most efficient and cleanest fuel. Its use in fuel cells and in other energy conversion devices (such as the heat engines) will produce no greenhouse gases, no ozone layer depleting chemicals, no acid rain ingredients, no oxygen depletion and no pollution.


Around the world, there is extensive r&d work on Hydrogen Energy and fuel cells. Many types of fuel cells have been developed. Vehicle manufactures have built several hydrogen fuel cell cars and buses. Mercedes Benz. Hyundai, Toyota and Honda companies started selling hydrogen fuel cell cars. Many bus companies are selling hydrogen fuel cell buses. Internal combustion engines are being modified for hydrogen fuel. Hydrogen fueled appliances based on catalytic combustion have been developed. There is research and development work on hydrogen hydride refrigeration and air conditioning systems. Siemens Company is building hydrogen fuel cells for submarines. Aircraft manufactures are working on hydrogen fueled subsonic and supersonic transport planes. The preferred fuel of the space programs is hydrogen. Without hydrogen, it would not have been possible to send astronauts to the Moon. Hydrogen made it possible to travel to the moon. It provided the fuel for the rocket engine, electric through the fuel cells for the controls and the cabin, and the by-product from the fuel cells was the drinking water for the astronauts.


Scientists and Engineers from many countries of the world will gather at the IFSSEHT-2022 Symposium to present their papers covering the recent advances in hydrogen energy and in hydrogen technologies.

All these will no doubt speed up the conversion to the hydrogen economy, eliminate global environmental problems, and provide the humankind with higher living standards.


I congratulate the organizers of this Congress and wish all the participants a very fruitful meeting and pleasant days in the Montenegro.
