Air Products is playing a crucial role to the running of the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy (FCHE) 2011 Conference in Washington, D.C.

Air Products has signed an exclusive agreement to supply hydrogen and fuelling technology for all hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles at the FCHE event.

The annual event is already underway and is taking place at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Centre. The conference will be taking place until 16th February 2011.

Nick Mittica, Commercial Business Manager for Hydrogen Energy Systems at Air Products remarked, “This is the premier conference for showcasing the capabilities of hydrogen as an energy carrier. We are pleased to provide the hydrogen and fuelling technology to assist the fuel cell vehicle makers’ hosting of several ride-n-drive events in Washington.”

“It will be a busy week with a lot of events scheduled to demonstrate vehicle capabilities and hydrogen’s use as an alternative energy.”
