Hydrogen for Fueling

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe and is the lightest of all elements and gases.  In recent years, hydrogen has come to the forefront as an alternative, environmentally, friendly fuel.  As an energy carrier, hydrogen provides many advantages versus other alternatives, particularly when used in a fuel cell. 

Hydrogen is found in nature in combination with other elements.  Natural gas (methane) and various renewable resources contain hydrogen and are the feedstocks for production of this molecule around the world.

Benefits of hydrogen as an alternative fuel

  • Environmentally friendly
    It's carbon free and, when used in a fuel cell, its only emission is water.
  • It’s non-toxic
    Unlike gasoline, hydrogen is not harmful to living things
  • Energy independence
    It can be produced from natural gas or renewable resources, reducing dependence on foreign oil
  • Renewable
    Can be produced from water and other renewable resources such as bio-methane
  • Abundant
    Hydrogen is the most commonly found element in the universe
  • Lightest of all elements
    Hydrogen gas diffuses immediately into the air and does not "pool" at the location of the leak.
