SAINT JOHN, N.B. - A New Brunswick inventor thinks he has found a new, cheap way to produce hydrogen gas. If he's right, we may someday use old pop cans to help fuel cars.

Hydrogen gas is often touted as the fuel of the future, but freeing up the gas can be difficult and expensive. The fuel is also difficult to store and transport.

Jim Andersen of New Denmark, N.B., may have come up with a solution. Andersen says he can make lots of hydrogen gas by mixing caustic soda, water and aluminum over a wide range of temperatures.
