Better air quality and lower levels of harmful emissions are vital for the future of the world’s megacities. So, the race is on – with sights firmly set on zero-emission public transit.
Buses, in particular, are moving into the limelight, and while battery-powered vehicles have enjoyed a considerable head start, hydrogen fuel cell buses are now beginning to catch up. Hydrogen is set to play a key role in reducing public transport emissions and thus making mobility more climate-friendly.
Over the past 20 or so years, Linde has been pioneering the development of hydrogen technologies. With numerous product innovations and ground-breaking projects under its belt, the company has an ongoing mission to continuously build out the hydrogen infrastructure and help hydrogen reach the breakthrough point on the road to sustainable mobility.
The success stories Linde can point to include the 200+ hydrogen vehicle refuelling stations around the world which the company has built to date. These stations serve not only public transit systems, which are the focus of the following article, but also private automobiles. As such, the company is already making a valuable contribution to decarbonisation efforts. The hydrogen fuelling capacity of 15 million kilograms (kg) of hydrogen per year, which Linde has successfully installed to date, is enough to cover 1.5 billion emission-free kilometres.
