In celebration of the 3rd National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day, Air Liquide announces the successful commissioning and testing of its first hydrogen fueling station in the northeast United States. The station was built in collaboration with Toyota Motor North America to support the deployment of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles in the state. This initiative is fully aligned with Air Liquide’s commitment to developing a hydrogen infrastructure for a cleaner mobility.
The station is located at 10 Jennings Road, Hartford, CT 06120, on the premises of a retail and refueling rest stop owned by Pride Stores, Inc. and is the first of 12 hydrogen stations planned by Air Liquide in the northeast United States.
Hydrogen is an alternative to fossil fuels in addressing the clean transportation challenge while improving air quality. Used within a fuel cell, hydrogen combines with oxygen from the air to produce electricity and water as the only byproduct.
The Hartford station, like the nearly 100 stations designed and delivered by Air Liquide around the world, allows hydrogen-powered electric vehicles to refuel in less than five minutes with a driving range of nearly 500 kilometers, thereby providing a typical vehicle fueling experience.
Air Liquide masters the entire hydrogen supply chain from production, storage to distribution; and the development of applications for end users thus contributing to the expansion of hydrogen as a clean energy source, for mobility in particular. Air Liquide is a founding member of the Hydrogen Council, a global initiative aimed at positioning hydrogen among the key solutions for the energy transition.
