Fast depletion of fossil fuels is urgently demanding a carry out work for research to find out the viable alternative fuels for meeting sustainable energy demand with minimum environmental impact. In the future, our energy systems will need to be renewable and sustainable, efficient and costeffective, convenient and safe. Hydrogen is expected to be one of the most important fuels in the near future to meet the stringent emission norms. The use of the hydrogen as fuel in the internal combustion engine represents an alternative use to replace the hydrocarbons fuels, which produce polluting gases such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydro carbon (HC) during combustion. In this paper contemporary research on the hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engine can be given. First hydrogen-engine fundamentals were described by examining the engine-specific properties of hydrogen and then existing literature were surveyed.
Keywords: Internal combustion engine, hydrogen, emissions, alternative fuel

For more than a century, hydrocarbon fuels have played a leading role in propulsion and power generation. However, increase in stringent environment regulations on exhaust emissions and anticipation of the future depletion of worldwide petroleum reserves provides strong encouragement for research on alternative fuels . As a result
