Hydrogen Fueling Vehicle

Hydrogen for Mobility

Air Products has taken a leadership position in the development of hydrogen technologies that provide reliable and resilient power and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

We deployed our first hydrogen fueling station in 1993 and have developed an extensive patent portfolio related to hydrogen supply and dispensing technology. Significant advances have been—and continue to be—made in the use of hydrogen both as a transportation fuel and a fuel for power generation. With more than 60 years of hydrogen experience, Air Products is on the forefront of hydrogen energy technology development.

Advancing Hydrogen Technologies

We are responsible for introducing numerous developments in the hydrogen energy market. Here are just a few.  

High-pressure Composite Delivery Trailers

Deployed the first 7500 psi trailer for delivering hydrogen to automotive stations, enabling reduced distribution and fueling station costs

Dual-phase Liquid Hydrogen Trailers

Deployed the world's only hydrogen trailer that can deliver both liquid and gaseous hydrogen, which can be used to reduce the cost of distributing hydrogen fuel

Cryogenic Two-phase Compression

Designed and deployed the only two-phase cryogenic compressor, which enables reduced capital, lower operating costs and high throughput at liquid hydrogen-based fueling stations

Hydrogen Fueling Protocols

Developed and patented fueling protocols that enable safe, efficient and reliable hydrogen dispensing for vehicles

Small Onsite Steam Methane Reformers

Developed a state-of-the-art onsite hydrogen generator that enables distributed generation of hydrogen fuel

Tri-generation from Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell Power Plant

Led a project team using key Air Products technologies to convert bio-methane into renewable heat, power and hydrogen at a municipal wastewater treatment plant

New SmartFuel® Liquid Hydrogen Trailers

Our new 10,000 gallon liquid hydrogen trailers, used in energy and other industrial markets, have been designed for the safe unloading of liquid hydrogen, particularly at fueling stations located in densely populated areas. With novel dispensing connections to fill and withdraw liquid hydrogen, the new SmartFuel® trailers enable unloading with almost no venting, meeting all regulatory requirements.

Built within a 30-foot ISO container that meets UN portable tank specifications, the new trailers are designed for the energy market to accommodate permitting to meet safety distance requirements. The new SmartFuel® trailers also meet ASME Section X11 standards and have third-party ABS and DOT-SP approvals.

Remote Hydrogen Fueling

Based on our extensive hydrogen experience and contributions to the evolution of fuel cell technology, Air Products designed the Smartfuel® portable hydrogen fueler to provide hydrogen fueling whenever and wherever it is needed. Complete with fueling storage and dispensing, our portable hydrogen fueler can be transported from location to location to ensure daily, around-the-clock hydrogen vehicle fueling availability. With wireless telemetry, we can remotely monitor the fuel level and refill the portable hydrogen fueler in place or exchange it for a full unit when the hydrogen storage quantity is low. There are currently 17 Air Products portable hydrogen fuelers operating in the U.S. and worldwide today.
