“To achieve our decarbonization goals we need to rethink how we move goods throughout society and that’s where hydrogen has a distinct advantage over other zero-emissions technologies. It is abundant, produces no emissions when used in a fuel cell and is the only technology that can provide the range and refueling requirements needed in heavy-duty transportation,” said Guter. “We’re very excited to be supporting the energy transition, not only by converting our own fleet of trucks but by also providing the hydrogen production, distribution and dispensing expertise needed to help solve the world’s energy and environmental challenges.”
Guter will be part of a four-person hydrogen workshop panel discussion that will focus on hydrogen fuel sources, production and delivery methods; liquid and compressed storage and refueling systems; and opportunities for hydrogen fuel cost reductions to meet fleet economic sustainability needs.
The ACT Expo is North America’s largest advanced transportation technology and clean fleet event. More than 5,000 people with more than 250 exhibitors are expected to attend.
Convention attendees are invited to stop by Air Products’ booth #553, on the exhibit floor to learn more about the company’s hydrogen for mobility solutions.
Hydrogen is an important technology option for sustainable transportation. Hydrogen fuel cells are gaining momentum as the technology of choice in heavy-duty applications due to the duty-cycles, especially in extreme climate conditions. Hydrogen as a transportation fuel most closely mirrors the traditional consumer transportation fuel experience. Air Products’ technologies are used in over 1.5 million refuelings annually across 20 countries, with Air Products having been involved in more than 250 projects. With over 60 years of global hydrogen experience operating in over 50 countries, Air Products has the proven capability and know-how to make hydrogen through all available production methods and to distribute this increasingly important emission-free fuel safely, reliably, and economically.
