Hydrogen is an ideal replacement for fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas in furnaces, internal combustion engines, turbines and jet engines.
Today, environmental pressures mean that hydrogen research and development efforts are focussing on hydrogen as an alternative fuel to power our mobility and transportation needs. In electrified vehicles, for example, it is used to run fuel cells which convert hydrogen efficiently (back) to electricity.
The application spectrum of fuel cells is vast. They have the potential to replace conventional power generators such as combustion engines or even large batteries in cars, buses, forklift trucks, submarines, and backup and power plants. Learn more about fuel cells.
Application areas for H2 - as a fuel
Hydrogen-Powered Cars - We are involved in numerous industry partnerships to advance automotive electrification and reduce carbon emissions.
Hydrogen-Powered Buses - In various cities including San Francisco, Hamburg, Milan and Bolzano, we are supplying the fuelling infrastructure to support H2-powered public bus services.
Hydrogen-Powered Forklift Trucks - Market-leaders such as Walmart and BMW rely on fuelling technologies from Linde to decarbonise internal logistics and materials handling services.
Hydrogen-Based Backup & Off-Grid Power - We have participated in several projects to evaluate the feasibility of stationary backup power supplies. BOC's Hymera™ generator is the first hydrogen-based portable power device.
