Air Liquide partner in this year educational challenge


The Challenge Bibendum, organised by Michelin since 1998, will be held this year from November 11th to 14th, 2014 in Chengdu, China.

It brings together representatives from industry, science, international and national institutions and NGOs to explore the challenges and solutions for sustainable mobility. Chengdu, a major industrial basin, particularly for the automotive industry, is the capital of China’s Sichuan Province and the country’s fourth most populated city.

For the duration of the Challenge, Air Liquide will install and operate a hydrogen filling station that can be used to refill several types of vehicles (passenger cars, buses, etc.). The stations developed by Air Liquide allow Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles to fill up in less than 5 minutes, offering autonomy that can reach up to 500 kilometers depending on the model.

Hydrogen is one of the solutions for providing clean energy. Used in a fuel cell, hydrogen combines with oxygen from the air to produce electricity with water as the only byproduct.
