Air Liquide is a partner of the 2018 Mondial - Paris Motor Show organized in Paris from October 4 to 14, and sponsor of the Start-Up Awards Mondial.Tech, an event integrated into the Paris Motor Show program, and dedicated to innovations for mobility. Mondial.Tech will bring together professionals from the automotive sector from October 2 to 6 at the Paris Convention Center Porte de Versailles in Paris. Air Liquide will present its hydrogen solutions for cleaner mobility.
Hydrogen offers a number of benefits for clean transportation. Used in a fuel cell, it combines with the oxygen in the air to produce electricity, with water as the only byproduct. It does not generate any pollution at its point of use: zero greenhouse gases, zero particles and zero noise. Hydrogen brings a concrete response to the challenges of sustainable mobility and local pollution in urban areas. It takes less than five minutes to recharge hydrogen-powered electric vehicles for a driving range of more than 600 kilometers.
For over 20 years, Air Liquide has been developing hydrogen energy as a solution for cleaner mobility. The Group masters 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. Air Liquide has designed and installed 100 stations around the world to date. In January 2017, Air Liquide and Toyota co-founded the “Hydrogen Council”, the world’s first initiative for hydrogen bringing together more than 50 key companies in energy, transportation and industry.
