In the Hydrogen Industry, it is necessary to be prepared for the many standards and regulations attached to production, distribution, and applications of flow valves. These standards may change from time to time based on scientific discoveries (or even political will), but they are meant to minimize risk to everyone who works with hydrogen flow valves. To achieve compliance, safety, and efficacy, companies need to be clear on what’s expected of them.
Gas producer, Air Products (AP), recently unveiled a solar-powered hydrogen fueling station. Their SmartFuel® technology uses electrolysis to make hydrogen from water, so providing fuel cell vehicles with power that’s truly ‘green.’
Fuel cells, which produce electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen, offer a tantalizing glimpse of an oil-free future. An alternative to carrying heavy batteries, a fuel cell-powered car needs only a supply of hydrogen to generate all the energy it needs.
