Air Products’ hydrogen fuelling technology to use landfill gas to power vehicles


Air Products has announced it has signed a contract with SK Energy to construct a hydrogen fuelling station for a novel energy project, to be based in World Cup Park in Seoul, South Korea.

The hydrogen fuelling station, to be onstream in July 2010, will supply hydrogen produced solely from landfill gas to fuel a fleet of vehicles.

The project is part of Seoul’s push to use alternative supply means to generate 10% of its energy consumption by 2020, and to use hydrogen for 30% of the switch.

“This is a very innovative project with high goals, and we are proud to be part of this plan and to work with SK Energy, which is a leading Korean company in hydrogen reforming technology. Seoul should be applauded for its foresight to use this project and World Cup Park’s prominent name andlocation as a showcase and model for its future energy plans,” said Bob Kelly, Business Development Manager for Hydrogen Energy Systems at Air Products.
