New challenges to fuelling the hydrogen market
Luxfer’s European Business Development Manager, Jim Gregory, will also take to the stage to cover ‘New challenges to fuelling the hydrogen market.”
Jim said: “Making tangible progress to deliver the promise of hydrogen to decarbonise transport – one of the highest-polluting sectors - has never been more important. However, accessing hydrogen to refuel vehicles, whether they be buses, trucks, trains or boats, has proven difficult, due to the lack of infrastructure and vital investment into it.”
Last year Luxfer announced a multi-million-pound collaboration with Octopus Hydrogen – a subsidiary of green energy tech pioneer Octopus Energy – in the specification and supply of bulk gas transport modules that will carry green hydrogen across the UK.
“Where no gas networks exist, bulk gas cylinder systems help meet demand by delivering hydrogen to where it is needed,” Jim added. “In our view, bulk gas transportation modules are the only hydrogen solution that is broadly viable.”
Set to launch later this year, the 40ft long units designed by Luxfer and called Multiple Element Gas Containers (MEGC), can transport 1.1 tonnes of hydrogen from the electrolyser plant to the point of use, in a safe and cost-efficient way.
