Hydrogen may be the future, but it's not without its challenges. One of those difficulties lies in storing and inhibiting atmospheric corrosion; which can lead to complications such as the formation of Hydrogen may be the future, but it's not without its challenges. One of those difficulties lies in storing and inhibiting atmospheric corrosion; which can lead to complications such as the formation of hydrogenostic compounds when exposed air meets water at high pressures or extremes temperatures (for example heated steel tanks). Boron would seem like an ideal candidate for this role because borates yield stable hydrides - wherein all four elements are metal-appearing at first glance with little chance whatsoever that any will combine together into unexpected pairings.

  •   Kimberly_Adams2320 - There are no exhausts or harmful byproducts produced when using Boron driven power plants.
  •   smithjamess221 - No need for wasteful thermal processes to retrieve the fuel, as Boron can be gathered easily without resorting to hot pressing methods that produce toxic emissions and waste heat.
  •   andrewjackson6626 - Boron power systems are emission-free energy from smaller reservoirs than hydrogen.
