Unlocking the Power of Hydrogen
Fuel Production Process
Learn how hydrogen is created and used as a clean fuel source though exploring the production process.
Hydrogen is produced through electrolysis, the process by which an electrical current is used to split water into hydrogen and oxygen atoms. By using electricity sourced from clean energy solutions such as solar or wind, hydrogen can be produced in large quantities without a carbon footprint.
The oxygen that is produced as part of the process is vented to atmosphere, the hydrogen is then sent to a compressor. A high-efficiency compressor pressurizes the fuel to 10,000psi or 700Bar. The fuel is stored in fiberglass tanks awaiting use.
Unlike conventional liquid fuels, hydrogen is dispensed based on pressure. Once a vehicle requests fueling, the hydrogen passes though pressure regulators, reducing the pressure to that required for fueling.
Fuel Cells reverse the generation process, passing oxygen from the air with hydrogen though the cell plates to produce an electrical current. This power is then used to power the vehicle, machine or generator as needed.
Fuel Cell Vehicles
Using this process, hydrogen is utilized as an energy source in FCVs. There is virtually no limit on its uses from light-use vehicles to busses to heavy transport trucks.
For the benefits of Fuel Cell Technologies to be utilized on a global scale, an adequate hydrogen fueling network is necessary.
Through a system designed with both efficiency and scale in mind, we are working to expand the current network to make hydrogen fuel widely accessible.
