Holthausen Clean Technology made headlines in 2017 when it converted a battery-electric Tesla Model S into a hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV).

More recently, the team has been in the news for its partnership with Hyzon Motors, Hyzon Motors Europe. Leading the joint venture is Max Holthausen, CEO of Hyzon Motors Europe.
