HYDROGEN - THE FUEL OF THE FUTURE
Hydrogen gas, a clean, zero-emission fuel is already used in transportation and industrial power generation. Japan leads the way by developing a strategic roadmap for hydrogen and fuel cells. By 2030, 1 in 12 cars sold in California, Germany, Japan, and South Korea could be powered by hydrogen.
As fuel cell electric vehicles are best suited for applications with long-range requirements and heavier payloads, the use of hydrogen fuel to power such long-haul vehicles as trucks, buses, and trains will contribute greatly to the decarbonization of the transportation sector.
Hydrogen can also be used to power buildings, industry, and even entire cities, to replace fossil fuels as feedstock for the chemical industry, as well as play a growing role in the storage of such other clean, renewable energy sources as solar and wind.
Hydrogen transport is here.
LIQUID & SOLID FUELS FOR THE SPACE INDUSTRY
Liquid hydrogen (Li-Hy) is a form of rocket fuel used in combination with liquid oxygen as rocket propellant. It delivers a specific impulse, the metric for rocket fuel efficiency, about 30%-40% higher than most commonly used rocket fuels. Adding to its advantages, Li-Hy is clean, non-toxic, and generally non-corrosive.
Li-Hy is the signature fuel of the American space program, and is used in the Delta IV and Atlas V rockets of the U.S. Military. It is also used by other countries to launch satellites into space.
