Luxfer-GTM and StratosFuel provided a showcase at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, on National Hydrogen Day (8th October).
The showcase included a fuel cell electric vehicle ride/drive experience and static display at JPL, the leading centre for robotic exploration of the solar system. The Toyota Mirai used in the ride/drive was part of the StratosFuel’s StratosShare car fleet. StratosShare is the first exclusive fuel cell electric vehicle car share programme in California.
The static display connected to the ride and drive displayed a Luxfer-GTM hydrogen fuel cell powered light tower and a Hyundai Nexo.
“We are proud to be a part of this next generation of hydrogen products and the adoption of their applications worldwide,” said Delisa Leighton, Senior Director of Strategic Accounts Hydrogen.
Berkeley-based Luxfer-GTM, a joint venture between Luxfer Gas Cylinders and GTM Technologies, provide gas transport modules and refuelling systems, with customised solutions for gas suppliers providing storage and transportation of high pressures gases.
StratosFuel, also based in California, is a developer of hydrogen fuelling stations, renewable production facilities and hydrogen software solutions. It is also running a hydrogen electric car share programme and offers the chance to rent a hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle by the hour or day.
The US Senate and Congress passed the National Fuel Cell Hydrogen Day Resolution as a day to bring awareness to this clean energy source and encourage tech acceleration with its adoption.
