News ReleaseAir Products Sells Hydrogen Fueling Station to Hyundai Australia

December 10, 2014 Lehigh Valley, Pa.

Air Products (NYSE: APD) today announced the sale of a hydrogen fueling station to Hyundai Motor Company Australia (HMCA). The fueling station will initially be used to fuel a Hyundai ix35 hydrogen-powered zero-emission fuel cell electric vehicle, the first hydrogen-powered car to be imported into Australia. The hydrogen fueling station, which will be located at HMCA’s offices in New South Wales just outside of Sydney, is currently undergoing commissioning and is scheduled to begin vehicle fueling this week to demonstrate the benefits of hydrogen-based, zero-emission fuel cell electric vehicle technology in Australia.

“Since we work with Hyundai at other locations around the world by providing hydrogen mobile fuelers in the U.S. and are leasing a Hyundai FCEV Tucson in Europe, we are thrilled to be working with Hyundai in Australia so they can fuel and showcase their vehicle and its benefits first-hand. We continue to develop our relationships with Hyundai and other vehicle manufacturers to highlight the benefits of hydrogen as a clean fuel, and the benefits of fuel cell electric drive trains as a zero emission automotive propulsion system at locations around the world,” said Chris Kretz, business development manager for Hydrogen Energy Systems at Air Products.

Air Products’ SmartFuel® hydrogen fueling stations are proven, stand-alone compression, storage, and dispensing units that have been placed into operation in over 21 countries as a standard product offering. Air Products is working closely with Coregas Ltd. Pty., an Australian-owned industrial, medical, and specialty gas company, as the local supplier of hydrogen to offer a complete fueling solution. Details on Air Products’ hydrogen fueling station technologies can be viewed at www.airproducts.com/h2energy.  

Air Products, the leading global supplier of hydrogen to refineries to assist in producing cleaner burning transportation fuels, has vast experience in the hydrogen fueling industry. In fact, several sites today for certain hydrogen fueling applications are fueling at rates of over 75,000 refills per year. Use of the company’s fueling technology is increasing and is over 1,000,000 hydrogen fills per year. The company has been involved in over 180 hydrogen fueling projects worldwide. Cars, trucks, vans, buses, scooters, forklifts, locomotives, planes, cell towers, material handling equipment, and even submarines have been fueled with trend-setting Air Products technologies.

Air Products has more than 50 years of hydrogen experience and an extensive patent portfolio in hydrogen dispensing technology. Air Products provides liquid and gaseous hydrogen and a variety of enabling devices and protocols for fuel dispensing at varied pressures. Hydrogen for these stations can be delivered to a site via truck or pipeline, produced by natural gas reformation, biomass conversion, or by electrolysis, including electrolysis driven by renewable energy sources such as solar and wind.
