The impact of hydrogen fuel cell technology on logistics and commercial transportation
The hydrogen generation industry is predicted to grow by $201 billion by 2025, thanks in part to the continued integration of fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) into the transportation sector.
Although the first FCV was introduced in the 1960s, it wasn’t until 2002 that automakers first launched fuel cell hybrid vehicles in limited markets. Since that time, significant advancements have been made in vehicle operation in extreme temperatures, and fuel cell stacks have become more compact and more powerful.
Today’s fuel cell vehicles offer many of the advantages of conventional fuels, including convenient refueling in just three to five minutes and longer driving ranges than electric vehicles. Plus, like electric vehicles, FCVs emit zero emissions, except for water vapor.
According to a recent article from Engineering360, hydrogen mobility is increasingly being extended to buses and trucks, and hydrogen-powered trains, marine vessels and even air transportation are on the horizon.
Fuel cell technology plays a vital role in helping to build a cleaner and more sustainable world for future generations. Conax Technologies is proud to support the rapidly advancing fuel cell industry with effective and reliable means of temperature measurement and pressure/vacuum sealing.
