Hydrogen Fueling for Automobiles

Transport accounts for 16.2% of global emissions.* Replacing gasoline and diesel cars on the road with zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell cars can reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality. 

Air Products is the leading supplier of hydrogen globally with decades of experience designing and implementing hydrogen fueling systems. We’re here to support your decarbonization needs.

How does fueling a hydrogen vehicle work and is it safe?

Fueling a hydrogen vehicle is similar to fueling a gasoline- or diesel-powered vehicle and takes about the same time.

How can hydrogen power an automobile?

Hydrogen can power a car using a fuel cell. In a hydrogen fuel cell, hydrogen atoms are separated into two primary components: one proton and one electron. The positively charged hydrogen protons pass through the fuel cell where they meet oxygen from the air on the other side. The electrons, however, head a different direction, creating an electric current which can power a fuel cell electric motor. The electrons then meet back up with the hydrogen ions and oxygen molecules from the air at the end of the process, creating water as the only emission.
