Hydrogen will be the fuel of the
future. It offers solutions to some of the greatest energy
problems and challenges facing future generations. Air Products
offer extensive Know-H2ow and expertise in the supply, safe
handling and application of hydrogen. We are involved in
projects ranging from small remote-power fuel cell applications
to car fuelling and large scale industrial hydrogen solutions
and space-rocket fuelling.
Here are some example projects that demonstrate our Know-H2ow:
In the UK
Air Products supplies its first UK Series 100 hydrogen fuelling station to the University of Birmingham. Chemical Engineers will be comparing five hydrogen powered vehicles with the University's own fleet of petrol, diesel and pure 'electric' vehicles so that they can learn more about their efficiency and performance. Tell Me More.
Air Products supplies the hydrogen for the fuel cells
which will power the lighthouse at the mouth of the Tees
Estuary and a traffic sign on Middlesbrough’s Transportation
Bridge - all examples of remote power applications.
Air Products supplies hydrogen for Bristol City Council’s ‘slow
down’ road sign.
Air Products works closely with the Centre for Process
Innovation and the North East regional development agency – One North
East – to stimulate hydrogen energy and fuel cell
applications in early-stage company developments. Teesside
sports extensive Air Products hydrogen infrastructure.
Air Products supplies the hydrogen for the launching of
NASA's space shuttle and Arriane rockets.
The Air Products series of vehicle fuelling stations have
now made over 8000 fill-ups since February 2004, fuelling
Toyota, Ford, DaimlerChrysler and MAN demonstration vehicles
Air Products has created the infrastructure
for refuelling the next generation of German Navy hydrogen
powered submarines - wherever they are in Europe.
Air Products and its Indian subsidiary, INOX Air Products,
have been awarded the contract to supply hydrogen fuelling
equipment for India’s first hydrogen dispensing station
at the IndianOil R&D centre in Haryana, near Dehli.
Air Products designed, built and sold to Shell the world's
first retail hydrogen fuel station in October 2005.
Air Products has already built more than 30 hydrogen fuelling stations worldwide.
