First fuel-cell boat cruises Amsterdam's canals

Emitting only water vapor and gliding silently through Amsterdam's centuries-old canals, a canal boat - a popular tourist attraction - powered by fuel cells made its debut cruise Wednesday.

Nemo H2, which can carry about 87 people, is the first of its kind designed specifically to run on a fuel cell engine, in which hydrogen and oxygen are mixed to create electricity and water, without producing air-polluting gases.
