Carburos Metálicos concludes hydrogen-powered bus test in Zaragoza


Industrial and medical gases company Carburos Metálicos, part of the Air Products group, has played its part in a test undertaken with the City Council of Zaragoza, in Spain, which studied the circulation and refuelling of a hydrogen-powered bus.
