On February 4 and 5, 2020, Air Liquide will take part in the third edition of the Hyvolution exhibition, a key event for hydrogen players in France and Europe for energy, industry and mobility. 

Although energy transition is already well under way in many parts of the world, many challenges remain. In order to meet them, hydrogen is a key solution for providing clean energy: reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, urban pollution, and fossil fuel dependency. Operating along the whole hydrogen energy value chain (production, storage, and distribution), Air Liquide is actively involved in its development.

Pierre-Étienne Franc, Hydrogen Council Co-Secretary and Vice-President of Air Liquide’s Hydrogen Energy WBL, will participate in the inaugural conference "Hydrogen in the 2020s Decade," scheduled on February 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.

HyVolution will also be an opportunity for Air Liquide to present the "HyGreen Provence" project together with ENGIE and the Durance, Luberon, Verdon urban area (DLVA) to produce green hydrogen on an industrial scale. As proof of the growing interest in hydrogen, the Hydrogen Council's roadmap for cost reduction will be presented on February 5 by Guillaume De Smedt.

Air Liquide’s commitment to hydrogen energy
In the past 50 years, Air Liquide has developed unique expertise enabling it to master the entire hydrogen supply chain, from production and storage to distribution and the development of applications for end users, thus contributing to the widespread use of hydrogen as a clean energy source, for mobility in particular. Air Liquide has designed and installed more than 120 stations around the world to date. Hydrogen is an alternative to meet the challenge of clean transportation and thus contributes to the improvement of air quality. Used in a fuel cell, hydrogen combines with oxygen in the air to produce electricity, emitting only water. It does not generate any pollution at the point of use: zero greenhouse gases, zero particles and zero noise. Hydrogen provides a concrete response to the challenges posed by sustainable mobility and local pollution in urban areas.
