“Sustainability is our growth strategy at Air Products. We have made significant investments to help build the hydrogen economy. The journey is well underway. Today there are heavy duty vehicles from Europe to Los Angeles fueled with hydrogen produced, distributed and supplied by Air Products,” said Guter. “The key now is to scale up, to create the infrastructure so when a business or government wants to make the switch to zero-emissions vehicles on a major scale, they know they have a secure, reliable and consistent option. We look forward to continuing to work with our customers to build a cleaner energy future.”
In addition to the keynote discussion, Air Products will showcase its hydrogen for mobility solutions at booth 10 on CoMotion LA’s trade show floor. Attendees are invited to visit the booth to learn how Air Products can support their company’s sustainability journey and learn more about Air Products’ recently announced projects, including a $4.5 billion blue hydrogen clean energy complex in Louisiana.
CoMotion LA is a three-day gathering that brings together leaders from across the entire landscape of the emerging mobility market — global mayors and policymakers, leading technologists, public transport operators and venture capitalists, start-ups and established players. CoMotion LA’s program of interactive talks, demos, and workshops is designed to provide insight into the more impactful phase of the mobility evolution.

Hydrogen is an essential part of decarbonizing the transportation sector. Hydrogen fuel cells are gaining momentum as the technology of choice compared to batteries in heavy-duty applications due to faster refuel times, longer range, and larger payloads, while performing better in extreme climate conditions. Hydrogen as a transportation fuel most closely mirrors the traditional transportation fuel experience. Air Products works across all facets of the hydrogen value chain, including production, distribution, storage, and dispensing and has been a pioneer in hydrogen fueling for decades. As global leader in hydrogen production, Air Products has hands-on operating experience in over 250 hydrogen fueling station projects in 20 countries, and the company’s technologies are used in over 1.5 million fueling operations annually.
