"One of the nice things about the community here in New Mexico is that there's no strictly competitive agendas here," SurFect President and CEO Thomas Griego said. "There are a lot of pieces involved in making fuel cells work, and everyone seems to be cooperating in terms of sharing information and the overall effort." On the fuel delivery side, MesoFuel, another Albuquerque company, has built prototypes of a machine that can separate hydrogen from natural gas. Using water is more expensive and difficult right now but could be ideal in the future, Griego said. "And I don't think a switch to water as a power source would affect the water balance in terms of growing crops or human use - because the byproduct of converting hydrogen to power is water," he said."It's renewable." Another source of energy for fuel cells might be equally renewable - soybeans.MesoFuel is talking to a Midwestern company to find ways to get hydrogen out of soybean oil.
