Compliance Quality standards for Hydrogen:

  • ISO 14687 Hydrogen Fuel Quality
  • EN 17124 Hydrogen Fuel Quality

Hydrogen Powered Fuel Cell EVs

  • Hydrogen-Powered Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) are considered one of the most promising eco-friendly alternatives to conventional automobiles.  
  • Zero emissions—only  H2O is produced as exhaust
  • High efficiency (more than 50% better than combustion engines)
  • Range similar to conventional vehicles (>400 miles)
