The first 100kg vehicle-mounted liquid hydrogen system has been developed in China, according to local reports.

H2 View understands that the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) has produced the system and claimed it will mark a “new breakthrough in the country’s transportation sector.”

Compared with its predecessor, the new system boasts a 20% increase in effective volume with identical dimensions, whilst reducing costs by more than 30%.
