Imagine a truck that only emits water vapor, produces its own electricity onboard and has a range of up to 1 000 km. It’s possible with fuel cells powered by hydrogen, and Volvo Trucks has started to test vehicles using this new technology.
“Our company’s very first integrated SOFC test laboratory has begun operation and will be providing us with important information for the planned series production of the fuel cell system for decentralized energy supply.”
The turnkey pilot system supplements the existing energy-efficient electricity and heat supply for production at the Thermotechnology site in Wernau, Germany, and has a second life in product development services as a digital twin.
Sasol and Sonatrach Raffineria Italiana (SRI) have formed a Temporary Association of Companies (ATI) to collaborate on developing hydrogen production projects. The resolution of the Sicilian Regional Council n. 47 of 29 January 2021 nominates Sicily to be the seat of the National High Technology Center for Hydrogen (“Hydrogen Valley”).
NASA-Awarded Air-Cooled Hydrogen Fuel Cell System Will Achieve Up to 2,000 Watts Per Kilogram of Specific Power and Up to 1,500 Watt-Hours Per Kilogram of Energy Density; Full-Scale Versions Will Begin Shipping to Aviation and eVTOL Customers in 2022
