Air Liquide, Faurecia to develop on-board liquid hydrogen storage systems for heavy-duty vehicles


Air Liquide has reaffirmed its commitment to hydrogen-powered heavy-duty mobility, having today (Oct 12) inked a joint development agreement with Faurecia to develop on-board liquid hydrogen storage systems.
