This paper reviews the various methods of hydrogen production for automotive applications. First, a summary of different methods of hydrogen production which are used in various industries have been given. The major focus of this paper is on non-thermal or cold plasma for hydrogen generation. Physical characteristics of cold plasma, as well as various methods of plasma generation and their characteristics have been discussed. As the hydrogen production is one of the major challenges for application of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells especially in vehicular industry this paper aims to provide an overview on different methods of cold plasma generation and plasmatrons which can be used to improve hydrogen production problem.
